Silver Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
New BBO record
That is great news, and I agree kudos to BBO technicians. A silver lining of all this is maybe some of the folks who were reluctant or more technophobic about bridge may be forced to try it, and maybe they'll decide that it isn't too bad / they like ...
World championships individual

Something like the way the robot individual is ran, except with no robots ...

Jorge Barrera Wins Spring NABC Robot Individual
Thanks, but since you were 9th and 2nd in B only fractions behind me, I think you should aim higher. :)
