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.

Reviving the Recorder System
Lots of comments on this thread. Stay tuned! I think you will all be fairly happy.

"Are you going to be sending guidelines to the recorders and clubs about this? " I am certainly going to be in touch with District Recorders about a number of issues. I want to be really clear about the club thing. Except for major ethics issues we have NO ability to ...
Reviving the Recorder System
Thanks for the kind words. I did not intend for this to be the first place I publish as Recorder but there are some things everyone should know - 1. Communication flow between National Recorder's office and District and Unit Recorders has been deficient in both directions. That will change ...
Reviving the Recorder System
Bernie - do you feel that since we don't have 100% perfect reporting that we should not bother? Not sure what the point is here. But I strongly feel that if somebody habitually breaches ethics we will know about it. BTW I don't think your example is a breach ...
In the Well: Adam and Zach Grossack
"Ortiz, the biggest icon in boston history." Really? Ted Williams? Carl Yastrzemski? Bobby Orr? Bill Russell? Larry Bird? As a Yankee fan I am trained to hate all things Boston. However I congratulate you both for your amazing success and more importantly your wonderful demeanor at the table. You guys ...
Ray Fink's bidding problem: QJ653 7 KQT874 5
Hard to understand why folks distort their hand with such an easy rebid. OK 1S bidders it now goes 4H p p to you...
Law 45 - is it just me?
Facing - playing "face up" (as opposed to face down opening lead). Law 45C specifies when a card is deemed to be "played".
Richard Margolis's bidding problem: J94 9753 KT2 AT6
Pass here seems clear. I assume dbl is responsive but even if it is penalty what am I hoping for? Most likely partner is void so they start with seven tricks. If partner has the goods I will get a second chance. THEN I have a decision.
