about me

Been playing for 55+ years, but am still at the intermediate level.  Have been teaching beginner bridge to seniors.  Strong believer in the 5Fs--fun, focus, forgive, forget, and if none of those work go into a private place to shout the 5th F.  Another f is for frustration; but we always come back to play in spite of it.

Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
BaseballReference,com lists a few minor league players named "Hazen," but none who played during the late twenties or early thirties when Lee Hazen would have played. I was going to add, but Ken Rhodes beat me to it, that players like Lou Gehrig played under assumed names for various ...

"Whatever happened to: 'of the people, by the people, for the people' ? and 'the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few'? When 95% of the members want something why shouldn't THEY prevail ?" Maybe more than 95% of the people on this Board. Maybe 1% of ACBL ...

"I most certainly NEVER testified on behalf of this person. I find it offensive for him to use my name in any regard, especially regarding some pretense of innocence." Wow!! I'm looking forward to his response to this statement.

I'm willing to bet that, per participant, far more cheating goes on in connection with the Olympics than around bridge. Yet no one has seriously considered eliminating the Olympics because of the cheating. (I personally support eliminating the Olympics for other reasons)

If you throw at him, the umpires will warn you. If you do it twice in a row, they'll either throw you out of the game, there may be a fight among the players or you realize that you're near to walking him. Generally, players on the opposite ...
Is bridge dying? A second look at the health of our game.
Great article, butI thought the median age in ACBL was 70-71,not 75. And I have no idea about what the median age is for non-ACBL players in the U.S. or what the median age is in European Nations.
You call the Director. You get a ruling
I voted 'other' because I wasn't allowed to vote for both of the first 2 choices.
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
In the sports that I'm most familiar with there have been different kinds of cheating. Here are examples of the penalties that might be levied: 1.
