about me

I am on several ACBL committees. I was on the NAC (appeals committee) from 1984 until its demise. I joined the ACBL Laws Commission in 2006. I was added to the ACBL Ethical Oversight in 2010. I am particularly proud (and mystified) about being appointed to the ACBL Goodwill committee. My hobbies include my dogs, singing, wine, and watching baseball and basketball. Member District 17 Board and ACBL 1st Alternate Director D17.

Country
United States of America

Richard Margolis's bidding problem: A964 73 Q9753 A8
I think this is worth 2S even over a balancing double.
Passing a redouble
not penalty at the 1 level
Identifying Bridge Proteges
I would be happy to have any/all of them. But for best results I think the "Bobby Fisher" is the lowest risk. He/she has proven that he/she can excel at the kind of problem solving required of gamers and can do so in live competition.
UI in San Diego?
Contract should be changed to THREE hearts - the "re-transfer" South surely would have made without the UI.
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: --- KQ32 K96 KJ8753
I pulled to 3C but I certainly think pass is a logical alternative. I don't think it's that close but close enough that I did consider it. So if a break in tempo is determined (however long as to be a break) I would require a pass.
Bridge Rule Clarification Questions
Hi Christian - congratulations for discovering Bridge - a wonderful way to pass time and keep your mind sharp! How many players do you have? If you have at least 8, have you considered duplicate? I am sure people here (me included) would help you with supplies.
Richard Margolis's bidding problem: T64 QJ5 K8 JT983
Partner has made a takeout double. Why would I bid a 3 card suit in preference to a decent 5 card suit. If I had only 4 clubs I might well choose 3 Hearts on QJX. But I can't see it here.
Robert Gellner's bidding problem: 83 AT73 AKQ94 Q2
I love to bud nt but this is too much. I open 1d and rebid 2d over 1s
What is this double?
Almost all my doubles are takeout and I love "advance balancing" but not when they basically announce a misfit.
