about me

Retired from missile defense industry. I played a lot from 1975-1987, then took about 15 years off from bridge when raising kids and coaching baseball, basketball, softball, and soccer. Then, I played 1-2 Nationals and little else for another 10 years until retiring. Since then, I've had a chance to play a lot more. Currently serve as President and BOG (1st Alternate to the BOD) for D10.

The Kibs Are Not Alright
I wonder Who sang that song.
The World's most complete bridge player.

The World's most complete bridge player.
Don, I'm not sure about early '90s, I wasn't playing then. But there was a requirement to belong to a "union" in the mid-80s. I remember joining the one run by Matt Guagliardo (sp?) ca. 1984. He had a booth set up at the San Antonio NABC (Spring ...
Bridge Hackathon Crowdfunding - your help needed!
Sounds like a great idea. I just donated.
If all authorities approved
That's your Unit. But you made a blanket statement (apparently meant to apply to all units) implying that it wasn't the Unit's purview, and that's not correct for all units. My unit owns the building and decided when play stopped and will decide when it will ...
If all authorities approved
Steve, some Units run their clubs, or at least own the building. So, I think they'd have a say.
Bernard Yomtov's bidding problem: AK73 AQ6 5 75432
I also would have raised 1 to 2. If partner had rebid 1N, 2 would have shown a better hand, so I would be stuck with passing or overbidding.
Club Closings
No, there is no way that there is 6 ft of separation. The tables are not even 6 feet long, IIRC. And if you have a 1st base and 3rd base, the dealer is no more than 2 feet away - unless he has really long arms.
RIP Don Caton
Great guy and very good player. RIP, Don.
Mark Jones's lead problem: 842 JT8765 32 A3
I'm actually more likely to lead a if partner passes.
