about me

I am a full time professional player, and have been so since 2004 (before that, I was semi-professional). I play in all the Nationals, a few Regionals, and do a little online teaching. My wife Debbie is also a full-time professional. We have a son, Kevin. I have two daughters, Ivana and Jahna, from a previous marriage

Should players be allowed to compete in a second USBC after qualifying?
I'm sad that Fred will no longer be allowed to compete in ANY USBC's. It's pretty obvious that he's trying to lay the groundwork to allow extraterrestrials to play. And this is clearly in his self-interest. Because only an alien from another planet could come up ...
Should players be allowed to compete in a second USBC after qualifying?
Cheri: " "screws over" the first set of teammates" Not if the teammates know the situation going in. They take their chances with the knowledge that it's going to happen if the second event is won. Nobody is forcing anybody to play with a particular teammate. " and contaminates the event ...
Hawaii NABC Childcare CANCELLED
This comment thinks it has been hidden but is incorrect.
What Do You Play at First Trick?
That's not quite the exact comparison. If you 'misguess' with A and West has K, you still make if either player has 4(+)-card together with 4(+)-card . You can squeeze that player. But, even with that added 'advantage' of A at trick one, finessing is mathematically ...
What Do You Play at First Trick?
You can finesee either hand for K. If East has it (and clubs not 4-0) you can playA, draw trumps and lead a spade. You have to weigh risking a singleton spade lead against West having led a from the K. Playing low is the percentage play - assuming ...
Should players be allowed to compete in a second USBC after qualifying?
That's a good question. It seems like everybody involved (and I'm not sure exactly how far that goes) should be given a 'speak now (or within a week), or forever hold your peace' option. But, if everybody wants something, it seems silly that it wouldn't be able ...
Should players be allowed to compete in a second USBC after qualifying?
Well I've tried as hard as i can to think about the flaws, and have not come up with any I see as realistic - and certainly not as great as the flaws that currently exist. So I made my proposal. And now it's up to others to come ...
Should players be allowed to compete in a second USBC after qualifying?
Fred G: As i said in the first place my 'head' is with you - avoid problems. But my heart wants a 'solutuion' to the clear flaws with the status quo I have already articulated. Obviously, if these flaws don't bother you, keeping the status quo is 'clear'. But if ...
Should players be allowed to compete in a second USBC after qualifying?
Jan: Right - I avoided (so far) extending the discussion to what still constitutes a 'team' after withdrawals. In any scenario, if the winning team has 'too many' players who have another event as 'priority', it means that the team has not yet 'officially' qualified. They have to wait until the ...
Down Under Coup
Maybe. But, if you duck smoothly, declarer will normally repeat the finesse that won, rather than try the 'unknown' finesse. Otherwise he may never pick up North's Qxxx
