about me

Have played professionally occasionally the last few years, would be happy to do so more frequently. I normally play locally (CT, NJ, NYC), but would certainly consider travelling, especially to a Nationals or Gatlinburg. Send me a Private Message if interested.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
I thought that (at least in general) negative inferences were [i]not[/i] alertable.
TD Ruling
Idee fixe, mindlock -- happens all the time, very hard to recover from (for me, at least).
TD Ruling
"so you get information from opposition and you see on the card it disagrees with his explanation..." 1. It was stated just above that there was no convention card at the table. 2. Having been given information, why would one check the convention card anyway?
So at matchpoints, it is takeout?
I apologize for this question
"I call it common courtesy..." That could suggest that to [i]not[/i] do so is discourteous...
TD Ruling
Well, you can agree that it should have been adjusted...
TD Ruling
Were E-W appealing just to get N-S's score adjusted or did they somehow think they were entitled to the result standing?
TD Ruling
"That the CC may say 'majors' seems rather irrelevant if my screenmate tells me 'clubs and a higher.'" The relevance is that [i]that[/i] explanation is misinformation.
Delicate Probe
Two more (making 4 instead of 2), the lead was from J75...
Delicate Probe
[i]That[/i] would give South 4... How would it gain even then?
