about me

I started playing in 1976, and loved it!!  I quit playing for periods of time when my 3 children were young.  By the third child, I had her enrolled in Mothers Day Out before she was born and played once a week.  After they were all in school, I played as often as I could during the week and went to tournaments around the Houston area (numerous) where I lived.  I was elected President of the Friday Club at the Houston Bridge & Games Studio and was the youngest ever to hold that position.  At the end of my year, I received a standing ovation which is one of my fondest memories.  I became a Life Master in Dallas in 1984 and became a Diamond Life Master a couple of years ago.  Now I have 5350 MP and unlike so many, I am proud of them.  I am also a club director, an accredited ACBL teacher and owned a bridge club for 3 years before moving to Mississippi.  We live only 9 minutes away from the ACBL headquarters because my husband insisted on being "close to work."  Moving was  an adjustment, having lived in Scottsdale, AZ for 21 years.  After 6 years, I have found that I love northern Mississippi, my home, and my newer friends.  We have a very fulfilling life here.  I now go to almost all of the nationals for 15 days (5 days earlier than they start), several regionals and local sectionals.  I enjoy visiting my children and grandchildren and feel fortunate that they all 3 live in Houston. So, now I have updated my profile as suggested and hope others will too so we can be more of a "community."

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Congratulations, Jim Munday!
I think that's fantastic, Jim. We are proud of you in northern Mississippi.
Daniel Jackson's bidding problem: A6 AT963 AQ6 KJ9
I think with the 5 card heart suit, and the wide range of no trump overcall, this hand is too good to overcall 1N.
Gidwani is ACBL's Next CEO
And don't forget that the A players have to travel to other cities to play in the ACBL-wide games, STAC games to get full awards, on holidays and on the Longest Day. I wonder who else has to do this in all of ACBL-land? None?
Fantoni/Nunes Update
Probably not because they can just talk on the phone or text.
Dahl and Oshlag Win Fast Pairs
Yay Richie!! We are so happy for you! You have had a super tournament. Something like 180 points? Since you play lightning fast, I know FAST PAIRS must particularly suit you.
Forcing pass
We play that the pass shows no losers in "clubs" and double shows a loser in clubs. So it is forcing for partner to double or bid 6S with that knowledge.
New Date for Fall NABC
Also, flights are cheaper when it is not a holiday weekend.
New Date for Fall NABC
I always go to be with my family in Houston and then fly from there to the national. So I miss some of the tournament. December is full of festivities, a few of which I have to miss because of the timing of the national which includes the early part ...
Chicago Photos - Bridge Players, Skyline, Sculptures & More
It was fun looking at all of your photos. Good photagrapher!! and of course, beautiful Chicago.
A Way Out
No wonder you are so good, Kit!! I have never thought of a hand's distribution in this way. Of course, they do not allow me enough time to do it!! :)
