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'm the vice president of my unit and a frequent bridge volunteer.

I'm an attorney.  My other hobbies are dancing, hiking, and knitting.

Legal, Illegal, Alert Needed or announce
Opening a 3-card major isn't a natural bid. Agreeing to open one of a suit with fewer than 8 high card points isn't allowed by the general chart or the midchart. The convention chart regulates conventions but also defines what isn't a convention by reference to what ...
Legal, Illegal, Alert Needed or announce
It seems to me at "considered natural" is a less clear way of saying "defined as natural."
What are your leads?
Right, leading low from 3 isn't inconsistent with the agreement to lead 4th best.
Internet Hotel Marketing Affecting Room Guarantees In Hotel Contracts?
There's a big difference between a hotel room price being above market and that room price being above what it would have been if the organizers had negotiated a block discount that didn't take into account playing space and worker rooms. The room rates are generally pretty close ...
What is "Standard" UDCA?
They're the same as long as you're talking about the second trick in the suit. They're different if you're not signaling count until the third trick (rare).
Internet Hotel Marketing Affecting Room Guarantees In Hotel Contracts?
Regionals aren't all alike. At some regionals, many of the attendees commute and don't need hotel rooms, and at others, most of the attendees are paying for accommodations. It also varies how much competition the host hotel has in the local market (whether from other hotels or airb ...
