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.

I am an aggressive 2C opener with a single-suited major but I believe this one pushes the limit too far. If my club K was the A it would be reasonable.

How about the GNYBA and NSBA websites?
Neil Silverman's bidding problem: K8 AQJ8 KQJ KJ9x
I bid 6C on the "last guess" theory. RHO has a load of spades and not much to be kidding around. A phantom (if it is a phantom) save is not unlikely. I shall be delighted to defend.

Actually while I understand the desire for publicity, and Gates' relationship with bridge (as well as Buffet's) has certainly been publicized in the past, I think it was pretty cool that he walked around with his partner just like anybody else and wasn't bothered. I passed him between ...
