about me

I'm from the Washington, DC area.

In the past few years I've started going to most NABCs.  I've reached the stage where I'm disappointed not to qualify for the second day (I often get to the second day) and pleasantly surprised to make the overalls.

I remember the last time I played against phantom club. It was a 6-board match. When we went back to compare, one teammate predicted that the boards would be absolutely flat. We won by 65 imps, I think.

Which form of scoring?
Learn Precision in 15 minutes
1M-4M can be a lot stronger than in standard.

If they bid over 1C, pass shows 0-5 or ability to sit for a reopening double, double shows 6-8 or better hand with no suit to bid and inability to bid notrump, and suit bids are natural with 5+ and 9+ hcp.
