about me

I was a traveling pro for what felt like decades but was really only a few years. Since 2011, I've been a full-time Tournament Director for the ACBL, traveling the American and Canadian West doing my best to help people have a fabulous time at tournaments. I still play and teach when I have the time. In my spare time I enjoy reading, biking, watching Vugraph, and (slowly) learning to cook.

1NT range announcement (ACBL)
"Someone" has been saying this as long as I've played bridge.
3-way KO match
The ACBL bases this on wins only, but the USBF has decided to base qualification on victory points, on the theory that the team that lost two matches by one imp is "better" than the team that won one match by one imp and lost the other by a hundred.
Epic Finish in Seamon USA2 Final
This match visibly aged me. Congrats to Arjun and co and deepest condolences to a very strong Wei team. We'll be seeing a lot more of them on Vugraph.
VOTE on VP Penalty for both teams in Round Robin match that finishes late
FYI: We (the TDs, mostly Sol) have been keeping pretty meticulous track of all these late/slow play data for each partnership in both the RR and KO phases. If something like Chris's plan were to be implemented, we have the data to start it immediately. Not suggesting the ...
Big Ideas
For BAM/Swiss events of one or two sessions, players that make the overalls receive the percentage of the event that they played. In three session or longer events, players that make the overalls get the full award regardless of participation, as long as they play enough to qualify (generally ...
Convention Chart Revisions
Robb Gordon. (Fabulous hire imo.)
Tie breaking in USBC KO matches
Oops, beaten by Peter. I should learn to read the entire thread before commenting.
Tie breaking in USBC KO matches
This may be optics only, but I'd suggest that in the "coin flip" cases said flip should occur before the match starts rather than after it actually ends in a tie.
A new record?
Analyzing a hand from a shuffled Swiss match in Monterey, CA in 2015 I found 432 62 6543 5432. Total pip count of 49, which I doubt I will see beaten.
ACBL Nationals Start times
FYI: Gatlinburg start times are 9/1/7, with main events at 1pm and 7pm.
