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.

Shiang Chen's bidding problem: x Jxxx xx KQxxxx
I would have chosen either a quiet 2H or 3C depending on method. However, given this auction I can't imagine why I would even consider bidding again. Presumably 4H was preemptive. When one takes a preemptive action, one generally does not have a "decision" in this situation. In any ...
What are your pet peeves?
So the lead out of turn was accepted?
What are your pet peeves?
Lengthy postmortems by the opponents while you wait to play the next board and the clock is ticking down. People who play with the Bridgemate, their convention card, and check their lottery ticket while you wait for them to lay down the dummy.

Ron Smith's bidding problem: 98764 762 KJ 543
Unless partner NEVER doubles a 1 opening bid with a strong suit and a huge hand, thie is a heck of a big position imo. Not hearing a redouble both increases the possibility of that kind of hand (slightly) and reduces the possibility of us being doubled in 2 ...

I thought I knew that name! But it couldn't have been Cincy 2000 - I wasn't there (Linda was). Linda and I are not together and Linda lives in Florida.
