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.

Thanks for the answer, at least now I know why!
RIP Ken Cohen
Played on several teams with Kenny in the '90s. He was a nice teammate. Yes, his bidding was aggressive! RIP
Things that made me burst out laughing during Bridge
The best laugh in bridge history, never to be exceeded, belonged to the late Grant Baze. You could hear it on the opposite track at Grand Central with two trains coming in.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AT4 J9852 54 J84
Sorry I have 5 of the suckers. I'm playing parther for 3. I think there are likely 15+ total tricks and I will have a big advantage in the play.
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: AQ K KT753 AQ653
@Jan Lagerman - I promise I didn't/don't have a wire LOL
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: AQ K KT753 AQ653
What an awful problem. My bid to show minors is at the 4 level and totally misdescribes this hand. Any time you double a heart preempt without spade support you better have a self-sufficient suit to run to. I choose 3 Clubs, my best suit. I am not going out ...
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AJ5 AT64 A8 AQ93
I chose 4NT. I would like 5 as a value bid but I do believe that that specifically asks for 2nd round diamond control, so it wouldn't help me here.
Michael Kopera's bidding problem: JT932 A QT AKQ83
Is help suit artificial?

Partners don't open weak 2's in second seat for many reasons, especially vulnerable. I think it is clear to move here.
