about me

I am the ACBL National Recorder. 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. Former member District 17 Board and former 1st Alternate Director D17.

Were NS damaged because of misinformation?
To beat 3D, N would have to lead Spade J or 10. That is highly improbable.
Ethics applied to a playing director
I don't think you did anything wrong. But your "my turn" statement suggests that other directors play in the game. If any were playing who HAD played the board, it might be good practice to let them take the ruling.

Congratulations Eric!
Your Opinion on This Director Call and Possible Re-call?
I could not disagree more, Richard. Club games are still the lifeblood of ACBL. Good players (if they are also good bridge citizens) play in these games and cheerfully mentor the less experienced players, both in technique and deportment. For purpose of perfecting ones game at the expert level, I ...
Honolulu evening food
While I agree with this in principle, most contracts for NABC's (or other meetings of its ilk) require a certain amount of money to be spent with the host hotel on hospitality. If you dispense with late night snack that reduces options. A good way to take care of ...

To Pros and Sponsors: Encouraging Super Bracket KO Events at Our Regionals
Anybody like the idea of "self-seeding"? If a team wants to play up, put them in the highest bracket you can. If a team wants to "play down" they can "step aside" and be moved down if they were marginal for the top bracket and be replaced by a "play ...
