about me

Trying hard to learn to play bridge well. Stubbornly believe that is possible despite learning in my 40's.

Your UI ruling?
I think these slow bids usually show. More concerning is that I think in any regular partnership each partner has a much better idea than an outsider of whether their partner is more likely to have extras for their hesitation or just have a minimum raise that wanted to show ...
How to play 3NT
One problem with ducking the opening lead is that a diamond switch might beat you immediately. Anyway say that they don't find the diamond switch and they just continue spade to the A and clear the suit. Now you are still down a bunch if you lose a heart ...
How to play 3NT
It seems like if you lose a trick to RHO, he can play a diamond to get a spade through. Assuming LHO didn't start with QT tight that will sink you. I agree with Ian the only prospect to get an extra trick without losing one is hearts. I ...
A difficult "eight ever, nine never" question
This depends a lot on what honors are missing. If the 14 HCP are KQQQQJJJ, there is exactly one out of the 11 distributions of the honors that give opener 12+ where the finesse is on. You would pretty much need a complete count to finesse. On the other hand ...
Congratulations to Monaco! Now named official 'winners' of the 2014 European Championships
I did a little more research. Ray thanks for pointing out the language of the handbook. In general it is not clear what force resolutions passed by a quorum of members have. However, it is clear under the bylaws that the membership has the ability to amend the bylaws. A ...
Congratulations to Monaco! Now named official 'winners' of the 2014 European Championships
I think there is a solution: 1. Enough people who are fed up with this show up to ACBL BoG meeting next year. 2. Bring a motion to disaffiliate the ACBL from the WBF until such time as the WBF leaves the jurisdiction of the CAS, and some ACBL committee ...
$375K ACBL Boondoggle & Hawaii Fallout!
The term normally refers to software designed to manage sales, marketing, and service interactions with an organization's customers. Often it helps do things like send marketing emails, track the responses to them, segment the customers, forecast sales, and manage resolution of customer service issues. For an organization the size ...
Perspective of a Playing Sponsor: I Came to Play
As far as titles go, I don't understand why there need to be any rules at all. In other endeavors, everyone on the team gets the title. The backup quarterback who never played gets a superbowl ring if the team wins. If Joe Lacob wants to use one of ...
Perspective of a Playing Sponsor: I Came to Play
Congrats on a great performance by your whole team! I watched quite a bit of the match and saw lots of good decisions. I have to say I was surprised that one third seemed to have been rounded down to one quarter. Not sure exactly how that happened but I ...
500,000-1 Hand
Richard's hand was about 1 in 30 million. If he plays two sessions every day he would get in about 20,000 hands per year. On average sometime around the year 3500 he will see a hand like this again. By the year 17000, he will have had his ...
