about me

I'm what some on this site would describe as a client, but am trying to get to the upper end of that status at least. Used to practice law, now in business.

This is great.
Sexism In Bridge
One can quietly state the result and ask for a volunteer, such as, "Three notrump North making four. Was either of you paying attention?" Seriously, why not just ask who prefers to check the score?
Sexism In Bridge
Frances, as you probably know, Trump is polling quite badly with every demographic except white males. I read that people of color are about 8% of the UK electorate, but they are about 30% of the U.S. electorate (despite the efforts of our Chief Justice and others to block ...

Thanks Ida, valuable post Justin. Between boards in the Celestial Duplicate, Helen Sobel raises a fist in solidarity!

What Is The Ethical Thing to Do?
If there really were bridge gods, the defenders would have had extreme distribution and would've been cold for two or three hearts. But virtue must be its own reward. Good sac.
What Is The Ethical Thing to Do?
So in the Flannery example, my mindset must remain that of a preemptive diamond bidder. For instance, I'd handle partner's response in a major according to our system for responding to weak twos in a new suit. After self-immolating from the bidding point of view, there is great ...
