about me

I have been living in Discovery Bay, California for a couple of years now. My wife learned to play during her nights off when our oldest son was a newborn. He is now 16 and both he and his younger sister have learned to play. They play at all of the youth nationals and I hope the family plays in a Swiss someday.


When not working or playing bridge, I like to play the piano and be on my skis - jet in the summer and snow in the winter. Last spring I got to be in the pit band for Cats, with my daughter playing Grizabella, and this spring I look forward to being in the pit band for South Pacific.

Insufficient advance
Except that the OP explicitly invited you to pontificate.
Critique This Auction with Satan
When we have an auction like this where the second suit is revealed at the four-level, our meta-agreement is that the lower side suit is a loud noise in the lower-ranking game-order suit, and the higher maps to the higher-ranking game-order suit. There are some combinations where it doesn't ...
Which club?
Thanks for the compliment :)
Upside down signal from H(H)T9
The nine would deny the ten if partner's lead shows the Jack. If not, simply play your lowest card and hope partner can work it out.

We are doing a favor for those who may think they like Barry Manilow by letting them know that revealing that fact outs them as people with no musical taste whatsoever. I write the songs? Puhlease...
