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. Send me a Private Message if interested.

My Favorite Hand Ever
Color [i]me[/i] [color=red][b]RED[/color=red][/b]. Not the first time...
My Favorite Hand Ever
"I have 50 red points before I had 60 master points." Hmm, since red points [i]are[/i] masterpoints...
NMF-Assess The Blame
Why wouldn't you? They (very likely) have to take 5 s on the go to beat 3NT.
Specific king(s) VS denial method VS Spiral scan part one.
It can [i]never[/i] be better, it [i]might[/i] be quicker. BTW, there [i]are[/i] hands where the asker does not have a side king, is interested in one and only one king, and would not be able to distinguish between that one or the other two ...

Anything Suspicious Here?
@Peg Kaplan -- yes, many make [i]that[/i] exception...but imho it is an exception, not the rule. YMMV
Anything Suspicious Here?
"2/1 is a name of a system where 2 plain new suit over 1 of a major is forcing to game." According to...Hoyle?
Replacing an unintended call (2)
"Why did the openner announce staymen?" My (first-order) guess is that he did so in accordance with the regulations in effect...
Anything Suspicious Here?

Anything Suspicious Here?
