about me

                                                                                        fell in love with bridge when i was 17 and have been  faithful to that love for over 55 years but despite all those years of playing i realized when it comes to playing the game i am rubbish (novice level) however when it comes to being a partner I am the best in Canada (modesty has never been my problem)

k.i.s.s. the secret to success in bridge is to cut down on errors and unless a new partnership is willing to put in the work(EASILY 20 TO 30 HOURS A WEEK) conventions and complications breed errors so keep it simple stupid

Kansas City Board of Governors Meeting
the board of directors are only interested in feathering their own nest they have no concern for the membership at large. They charge us more and more so they can vacation in Hawaii at membership expense there is no excuse for their conduct when the league is having financial problems ...
Does position change whether to open 1Maj or 1NT?
you should always open 1 spade or 1 NT (in my case it is very feelings dependent) but I feel you should always open with this hand on this I am uncompromising.
Is there a dominant style?
I abstained because I might overcall and then again I might pass depending on how I was feeling
David Silver
I have known David for more than 40 years I will miss him , I will also miss the credit many people gave me for having written his very clever and funny books.
Double Jeopardy
Cameron you are WRONG double jeopardy is alive , and well in Canada
Balicki-Zmudzinski May Play Freely in EBL!
The EBL after much study, and a full disclosure of the facts(which most of us were not privy to ) has spoken. So I say to those who were rooting for a guilty finding GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON.
Who should have pushed harder?
think west's trumps too good to sign off not to mention 2 red aces in the face of east's 2 Q bids
Why are men more successful at bridge than women?
There are only two things men are better at than women, driving a car and playing cards. I repeat these are the ONLY two things men do better at than women. Its not close men are definitely the inferior sex.
What Does An Ethical Huddler Do
Hey I have enough trouble playing my own cards without worrying about how much time I am taking. My hesitations are my partner's problems not mine.(what me worry?)Of course the inverse is also true his hesitations are my problems.
Is THIS a record?
In my youth playing with the KOACH we were playing in a two session open sectional pairs we q'ed for the evening and with carryover we scored 180 total(at nite average was 156) for the win.
