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).....

District 21 Wins GNT
Congrats, this team played extremely well........
GNT Final: District 9 vs. District 21
Usually I play: if we just leap to 4NT, without showing any support over partne's opener, it is straight aces; to RCKB(or Kickback), you have to cue or show support first.
Assign the Blame/Credit
I like to play that when we open, they bid at the 2 level, partner passing, we X, Lebensohl applies; here, W would bid 3 diamonds, and now you can bid 3NT.....
Uber at Pearson Airport - Pro tip for the Summer NABC
My Uber cost me $83 Canadian tonite from the Toronto airport to downtown......
After a Quantitative 4NT Raise
Bid Aces at 5 level, suits at 6 level(assuming we accept); I play 4NT=a milder invite; 5 spades(over 1 or 2NT)=stronger invite
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AK2 AKQJ965 --- T76
Since our right hand opponent may well be void in a suit, if it is clubs I don't want to land in 7H and have him X; so I will head towards 7 clubs....He is on lead.......
Competitive bidding with flat hands
It's a bidder's game.....bidding on these hands leads, in the long long run, to better results...and it's more fun to bid anyway.....
Namyats and related alerts
I think it is only fair to alert opening 4M, if playing Namyats; (I actually play 4C=6+H, 5+ clubs, strong hand(5 losers at worst), 4D=6+H, 5+D, same...and 3NT=6+spades, 5+ another suit, strong)
Fargo & Bridge
In one early episode they replicate a duplicate game, with bidding's pretty amusing.......
Protection ?
It is reasonable to award EW +650 BUT the main point here is that North took ridiculous advantage of the long hesitation; with only 6 in his suit, the Ace of his suit, and an outside K, it is so outlandish for him to be bidding 5 spades.
