about me

I am a C.P.A. and enjoy bridge for the logic of it.  Started in college (UNC) but, luckily not until my last year.  Ran local games for over 30 years with my wife.  Mentoring newer players is a great joy, to see them get more comfortable with this great game.

Raising on three after 1heart (pass) 1spade (pass)
When I play Flannery I hate for 1 to promise 5. I would rather bid naturally (even though we probably do not have a spade fit) than misrepresent my distribution with 1NT or something else that does not describe my hand.
Two Scenarios
I think the fact that the TD's services might be missed should not be taken into account. IF they are the ONLY TD, then a suspension at another date should be considered.
Who doubles when opps balance against 2M - Part II
3 is within a hairs breath of making. Too close to risk a double. (Give South the jack of clubs).
What do you call ♠AQJ764 ♥8 ♦AQT432 ♣- ?
Partner grossly underbid their hand at the first call and, after that, after the second. Way too good to only bid 3.
Hawaii NABC Childcare CANCELLED
It does not affect me, but this seems to be the sort of thing that should have been worked out months ago!!!
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: A5 AQT5 A52 AJ83
Not discussed, but if so, she has one side king.

Gregory, partner will give you 4
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: --- AKQJ9 KQT95 A83
Peg, not so weird and a great idea. I will send you a message with what turned out to be best.
Save Bundy's Sanity
I am sure that video recordings are the only way to know what exactly happened and by whom, but chess clocks are a good start and probably a lot cheaper that recording the activity at every table.
Your preferred defenses vs. 1NT
I like and prefer Brozel and like Bill, cannot believe it was not on the list ahead of some systems I have never heard of.
