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.

Diamond Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Would you call for the director?
I assume 3 wasn't out-of-tempo (or you would have said so). As long as it wasn't, N can bid whatever he wants (he doesn't have any UI, and the 3 bid greatly improved his hand). If 3 was out-of-tempo, then their agreements about the ...
Bridge Players on TV Game Shows
My son was on Jeopardy. He won twice (lapping the competition the second time).
Is there a standard treatment here?
They slopped a trick on defense. And actually it wasn't quite the same auction because responder hadn't passed. I think it went (1C)-1H-(1S)-1N-(dbl).
Is there a standard treatment here?
18-19 but the last person who made that double against me with 18-19 ate it.
Essay: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the BBO Bots
A lot of the time, putting another team in bracket 1 doesn't move anyone down. If there were going to be 9 teams in bracket 1 (with the break between bracket 1 and bracket 2 determined by the director based on the teams entered), it's not a big ...
Essay: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the BBO Bots
My understanding is that at most regionals you can already request to be in bracket 1 and they'll do that if it doesn't push anyone into a lower bracket who shouldn't be there (most of the time, bracket 1 doesn't have 16 teams anyway). You just ...
World Championship Humor
Well, if he played up to the ace and LHO showed out then he knew it was offside.
Essay: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the BBO Bots
At our local tournaments, they run an A/X swiss along with the bracketed B game, and anyone can play in the A/X swiss.
Team League Structure in ACBL
Sorry, our website is currently in transition. But I can answer any questions you have about it. Matches are usually at players' homes, though they can be held at any local club. Participation isn't restricted to our unit; we get players from neighboring units too. The winter KO is ...
Bridge goals and resolutions for 2018
What I've heard is that a comparable bid is a bid that shows either the same thing as the erroneously made bid or a subset of hands that the erroneously made bid shows (so that the erroneously made bid doesn't end up giving any additional information). So, for ...
