Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Knowing Grant Baze
Bridge Accomplishments
Good year in 1998. 1st Open BAM and 2nd Spingold
ACBL Ranking
Gold Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
The Worst Advice Ever
Sam Fry: "When in doubt, play Mah Jonggh."
The Worst Convention Ever
Fishbein came out of rubber bridge when it was an indispensable tool on Goulash deals. Like Goulash deals, Fishbein is, deservedly, extinct.
Favourite Novelty Conventions
I think Zia once wrote about the Paki Echo, where, on defense, a high-low on the final two cards of a hand says "Partner, that was the worst opening lead I have ever seen."
Poll for those who watch vugraph
Hi, Oren. Can you do that and not lose the oral commentary?
Poll for those who watch vugraph
Always happy to know what happened at the other table. What drives me nuts is the idiotic swoosh noise every time a card is played.
How would you rule, and would you request a ruling?
E-W were careless. N-S were chickenshit. The TD did what he had to do. End of story.
When else can 1m-1M-2M be based on 3 card support?
Bidding 1NT with honor third support in partner's major and a worthless doubleton in the other major is losing bridge unless, of course, you are the pro.

I hope this means what I think it means.
True North American Championships Coming
Please don't Pokorny me! I meant to say "geniuses." "Morons" was a typo."
True North American Championships Coming
The reason the ACBL is dying is that most of its members are morons who forget what day of the year it is when they get announcements like the above. Too funny.
