about me

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

Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
The first 105 boards of the 2018 USBC round of 16, where we played ROSENTHAL to a draw. (The match was 120 boards, the last 15 were less successful).
Bridge Accomplishments
Won 9 of 17 matches to finish 10th in the 2018 USBC RR. 27th in 2018 Blue Ribbon pairs and a couple other national pairs overalls. Won 2017 GNT-C Nationals (is winning a limited event really a bridge accomplishment? Dunno...)

Mine was a emoticon-challenged version of the same, though I left out the "-" and had just a ;)

Richard, How can you possibly say that Melanies action is in any way morally equivalent to taking ones football and going home? If someone went home they remove themselves entirely from the conversation. Melanie can still read all the comments and silently follow the conversation. But much more important aking ...
You call the Director. You get a ruling
I have argued that rulings I won were incorrect (sometimes with success) but I did not know that the prevailing party in a ruling actually had standing to formally appeal, so as a result I have never appealed a ruling I won. Good to know that this is possible. Edit ...
A Request from Ms Manners
Yeah, I am thick skinned... and sometimes I make decisions so bad that #6 doesn't even capture it... had some like that today. But who wants to go plus +670 against a partscore when you can go -800 anyway?
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
It can't be logical to say that what you describe is equivalent to murder since it clearly isn't as bad as, for example, shooting your partner for going down in a cold contract, which is obviously the best "equivalent" of murder if such things are to be included ...
Another cool double dummy problem from the common game
Yep. Like the hidden gem movie scene after the credits are already rolling, after the "endplay" there is another ending :)
Another cool double dummy problem from the common game
Agree on double dummy vs single dummy. I thought losing 3 spades to take 3 hearts was a very nice DD line.
Another cool double dummy problem from the common game
Agree. So now try to take 9 on a club lead.
Another cool double dummy problem from the common game
As Steve points out above if they don't lead a trump you can come to 9 tricks by setting up spades. So yes, assume a club lead.
Another cool double dummy problem from the common game
Are you sure this line works? When you give up a heart they can tap you in spades... how do you keep control?
