about me

I still love to play, altho I do worry about the future of our game; I am a neurologist, with a headache center just North of Chicago, and avid hockey player.....

I have won a # of national team titles, including the Trials in 1996(represented the US in Rhodes that year).....

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ATB, if any, for this missed slam
The older methods(4d cue by W followed by 4S=slammish in spades) work better on this hand BUT: 4d as COG is consistent with more modern methods: the first priority is to find the correct strain in game. That does make it tough on this hand to reach a ...
Is this double take out or lead directing?
3 clubs in this situation is often artificial; even if the opponents do not have that listed, many play that "could be" artificial. If it "could be artificial", then this should be lead directing; if it guarantees clubs, even then it should show clubs; to enter into this auction with ...
The Burgay Tape
"The past is never dead. It's not even past" "Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it" "The past is strapped to our backs" ...Alot of lessons to be learned from those scandals. And, history is interesting. Thanks, Avon, I appreciate the articles.......

YOU ARE BANNED!!
Yes, it was Danny's and Flo's(his wife) club.....and Bill owned it and ran it for awhile....it was 24 hours/7 days a week.......I was in medical school, 1979, i would walk in and Danny would yell "Robbins, get out of here, aren't you ...
YOU ARE BANNED!!
Great column......in Chicago, we had two (and at one point, three) rubber bridge clubs in the 70's/80's.........incredibly fun, miss them.........
Multi-2!d-(2M)- why bid 2N rather then double?
I think many pairs should keep 2NT as if no interference because: in a vacuum, yes, we can have many exceptions for each sequence; BUT, we play not in a vacuum, but (sometimes) in long events, with lack of sleep, or are tired for myriad reasons. I think keeping most ...
Brain Performance Drugs
Peg, that is common..opposite reactions to various meds.....happens much more often than most are aware.....
Brain Performance Drugs
There have not been studies on caffeine, or stimulants, relating to the deep, complex, and varied thought processes involved in bridge. There are studies on caffeine and stimulants and various brain functions, but bridge is somewhat unique.....
