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

Cell Phone Penalty
The entire answer should be "it depends". For ringing a small penalty followed by bigger penalties if it happens again during a tournament. For using/texting (assuming no suspicion of cheating) the full board. For noticing that your phone is on and turning it off - ZERO penalty.

How times have changed. The only time I was ever disciplined by the ACBL is when I put a fake name (with the correct #) on my entry. I got 90 days (!!!) probation. I wasn't expecting to fool anyone with "Arctic Penguin" but... (this was in the 1970s)
Matt Smith Promotion
I heartily agree. I have been around a LOT of directors over about 50 years and he is right at the top. A nice guy to boot!
Henry G. Francis
Very sad to hear. I caddied for Henry in the 60's when he was a TD from New England. He was a friend for many years.
Joshua Donn's bidding problem: QJx Ax AT9xx Kxx
I like my diamonds but not my hand. Partner hasn't made a slam try yet so the question is what is the best game. I have no reason to think 3NT is wrong and 9 tricks are usually easier than 11. But if partner makes a move then I ...
Open Toronto Discussion Thread
I too was at the game. I manage to get to one every Toronto NABC because it is so darn convenient! It was a beautiful night, actually a little chilly. I sat downstairs just on the 3rd base side of home plate. It seems that the Jays have a (on ...
Open Toronto Discussion Thread
Seems to me that the distance from the non-Intercontinental hotels is a bit far for some of our 70-90 year old members. Is there a shuttle bus?

Canada is included in my Verizon plan.
3NT Overcall over Pre-empt. Methods?
Is it clear to play transfers here? I'm not sure.
We Hope You Stay Home
I don't understand why they can't go for balance. It is likely that Gold Rush players would choose bracketed Swiss/KO if no Gold Rush was available so why not split the table credits? Off the topic a bit but speaking of Gold Rush - what does everyone think ...
