about me

I'm from the Washington, DC area.

I usually attend 2 or 3 NABCs per year.  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 president of my unit and a frequent bridge volunteer.

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

Lebhar IMP Pairs in Memphis
They can play silver ribbon pairs Friday and Saturday, and then imp pairs on Sunday and Monday. This schedule is much better for those of us who are too young for silver ribbon pairs and aren't playing in the Vanderbilt for one reason or another.

Team League, Round Robin Format
We do something like this in our unit, except played in players' homes. The round robin is 2 12-board matches against each team, and there's a playoff after that (our event is bigger than yours, but with 5 teams, I think the playoff format would be 2/3 play ...
Stay or Run and UI - Corrrected
John, do you really think partner needs protection against the possibility that 3 was alertable after 2N? Has anyone seen that bid used as natural? There is also a rule against asking solely for partner's benefit.
Stay or Run and UI - Corrrected
I think Dan's point is just that you can't ask if the only reason you're asking is to try to get the opponent to give you an incorrect response (that's prohibited by law 20(G)(2).
Important tactical tip at MPs
If average isn't available, you really have very little to lose by not ducking. All you need is the king of spades onside to beat the pairs playing 4. They might still beat you if diamonds are Kx onside (I'd play diamonds from my hand if the ...
Important tactical tip at MPs
You have to play to get the same number of tricks as if you were playing in spades. If you take fewer, you won't get many matchpoints.
