about me

Off and on bridge player since mid-80s. Really serious again (as of 2013). Took 10 years off to play serious poker.


Current Partners: (Regulars) Sho'reh T., Jonathan Holmes, Basant Shah, Yehudit Hasin-Brumshten, Wayne Karson, Peter Knee.


"Bridge is a game and is meant to be fun."


"In the entire history of poker, more money has been lost than won via the slowplay."


"With 6-5 and A K Q all in the long suits, reversing is fine."

Bad Disclosure (Pass the cheese, I already have the whine)
See I run into this opponent all the time. Usually partnered with someone that complains that they were not informed about every 17th level inference or nuance associated with a sequence.
Bad Disclosure (Pass the cheese, I already have the whine)
This is a problem with disclosure. Every opponent prefers some other type of disclosure than the one you are currently offering. In my experience club level opponents resent two things above all else: Not winning, and Opponents that know (Instead of guessing) what their bids mean.
Bad Disclosure (Pass the cheese, I already have the whine)
I think any player complaining about a director should have to direct two sessions for each complaint.
Bad Disclosure (Pass the cheese, I already have the whine)
I took it. Dumbest move I ever made. I did find out that most bridge players don’t want to play bridge. They want to litigate.
Undos in the Reynolds KOs
It is very possible to create shortcuts or macros for your most commonly alertable or announceable situations, Type 1c1d on my iPad for example it spits out: “<9 points, any shape” Type 2D and “10-15 points short ♦️ 4414, 4405, 3415 or 4315” Etc. For drury I don’t have a ...

Happens a lot on my IOS device. Have not noticed on Chrome (laptop).
The Kibs Are Not Alright
Yeah, but seriously, what are points worth anyway?
Dummy's rights in a Timed online Swiss Teams
I just call the director. Even to complain about a 14 point NT. When the card says 15-17. But the auction went 1 1 1NT. Oh well, the years are piling up and it’s not like those guys are busy anyway.

2 minutes is an eternity. 1 min maybe.
