about me

I took 20 years off of bridge to raise my three sons. I loved every single minute of THAT! Coming back to bridge wasn't exactly easy but it is very cool that a person can come back after TWENTY YEARS and get into the swing of things (unlike physical sports!). I'm very interested in figuring out how to get young people into bridge and welcome hearing any ideas!

Shi and Granovetter Win Women's Pairs
Congrat's to YOU Jeff! Vanderbilt/Hall of Fame and married to Sally! :-)))
Michael Seamon (1960-2017)
Matthew and I are so very sorry to hear this sad news. I LOVED playing with Michael - he was the greatest. Condolences to Janice and Rita.
Memories of Juanita Chambers
I often read "The Psalms of David" when waiting around at a tournament. Juanita saw me doing that last year and showed me her "Psalms of David" cell phone ap. I'm so glad she found peace at the end of her life. She was a lovely person.
Eddie Wold elected to Hall of Fame
Mazel Tov! :-))
Pamela Granovetter's lead problem: J3 K763 A653 732
I agree with the (obvious) negative double over 2C. This wasn't my partnership's hand, and I didn't ask.... Still, if North cuebids 2S anyway, I can't see East now introducing his diamonds. I use opener's/overcaller's double of the cuebid to show extra playing ...
Why do major players cheat?
Hi Tim, Just saw this; the low heart lead you cite doesn't surprise me. I played with Dick Katz for a couple of years and he made AMAZING opening leads - I promise I didn't signal anything! He has a great deal of imagination, and, in my opinion, he ...
BAKER Wins Women's Swiss
Well, those who patronizingly inform you the top players don't care are misguided; the top players certainly do care. At the regionals, the top players go and check out their masterpoints on the bracket sheets. Some people even go through the tournaments results on the acbl website and check ...
BAKER Wins Women's Swiss
Do you think Meckstroth doesn't care about masterpoints? Guess what - he does! Mind you, I don't *really* care but it does seem weird that I win more for a random two-day knockout than for a tough national event.
BAKER Wins Women's Swiss
Great idea, Danny. Maybe ALL NABC's should get MP's awarded in that way. I personally think 250 is too little for the Vanderbilt....
BAKER Wins Women's Swiss
What David Yates said is exactly so. Most of the time we played against teams that included world-champions and multi-world-champions (sometimes teams with FIVE of them). So it was the most difficult women's Swiss I've ever played in and it WAS ironic that the master point award was ...
