Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Making an ill-advised 7 Spades contract. Wish I could find that old hand record. (Update: I found it!)
ACBL Ranking
Non Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
Mike, I find it cute as all getout when UKers treat their version of English as [i]the[/i] correct usage, and sniff down their noses at the usage employed in a country which has nearly five times as many speakers.* It's doubly amusing when said British "subjects" proclaim ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
Ron, if I were to comment on someone else's grammar, I'd be careful to spell my words correctly.
Traveler View - negative good will for the club?
Stu, sometimes they are bigger annoyances. Butt that's not always the case.
ATB: Mist Game
Yeah, part of what I'm wondering is, had West raised to 3, should East find the game? I mean, it's a good hand, butt with six losers I wouldn't be inclined to go directly to 5 with E's hand after a raise. If W goes ...

What are you done with?
Ian Grant: Why bother? ACBL MP ranks have little relationship to skill level. ACBL Life Master is like a high-school diploma. It certifies that one has a record of attendance, without flunking everything. (Butt it still doesn't hurt to congratulate people on either achievement.)
Hotel room in Atlanta
Dangit; if that were my name, and they asked, I'd say "Yes, I do own the chain, thank you very much—and please send up my sixpack and slippers ASAP." On NPR Radio's Wait Wait…Don't Tell Me over the weekend, they had a contestant on the ...
Directing on BBO
I wouldn't trust a dictionary as the ulti-Matt authority on technical jargon such as "cuebid". My dictionaries are missing lots of words that I use in science and engineering, so I wouldn't expect them to get bridge terms right. (And forget kayaking and skiing jargon, LOL.)
ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed
Gary, I disagree. His cred should be assessed as a function of what he writes; his photo is entirely irrelevant, and his resume is of only tangential interest. Do you have any substantive response to what he actually wrote?
Legal Agreement or not?
David: When they were flagged, I clicked on the "I mean it like cigarettes" box, so they went through unscathed.
