Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
UDCA and Smith
Hi, Barry. At what point do you make up your mind whether or not you have something surprising to say, and isn't it often extremely difficult to do this in tempo? I would think there would be extraordinary tempo restraints on all Smith users, regardless of which version they ...
Stimulants Probably Do Not Improve Bridge Performance
Something I should know but don't: does the ACBL (as opposed to WBF and USBF) have any anti-doping rules, banned substances, etc?
Ribbon events
I don't see how you can go back at this point. The Blue Ribbon is finished as a premiere event; sub-basement qualifying standards and getting rid of the 2 section 3 board final was bad enough, but the Soloway has now put the final nail in the BRP coffin ...
Thanks, Fred Gitelman
Too young to retire. 6 years is a long time but HOF awaits. Many thanks.
The Godfather of Bridge
Great stuff, Avon. Keep at it, keep at it, and keep at it. Come on Carlo, tell me what you did. Don't be afraid. Do you think I'd make my sister a widow? Now who approached you...was it Tattaglia or Barzini?

Assign the Blame for Reaching This Poor Slam
Hi Eric. This is what happens when you play with Reitman. Were you South or North?
Arrest made in Barry Crane Murder Case
In his piece on Crane, Grant Baze used the expression, "brutal murder." When I ragged him for employing a hackneyed redundancy, he told me about every bone being broken, which shut me up but good. Not 100% certain after all these years, but I think I heard the poker rumor ...
Arrest made in Barry Crane Murder Case
I have been told that when they found Barry every bone in his body was broken. If true, very unlikely it was some random guy on drugs. A psycho hitchhiker maybe, but a MO like that is not likely to quiesce for 34 years. A close and very plausible friend ...
