about me

 I’ve been a game player and gambler as far back as I can remember including sports betting, blackjack, and backgammon. In recent years, I have put more emphasis on Poker, which along with bridge has always been one of my favorite games. I am a ‘graduate’ of the old Mayfair Club, where we started off as bridge players, moved to backgammon and then to poker. Many top bridge players learned from Al Roth at that club. It was there that Paul Magriel put backgammon on a scientific footing, and for about 10 years almost every top backgammon player learned there. The regulars (including Eric Siedel and Dan Harrington) from the Mayfair poker games have won around 30 WSOP bracelets. Read more by Steve Zolotow

Feedback: ACBL Convention Charts
If the ACBL wants to insure a shrinking membership, handing new members a copy of all of these color coded charts would make an excellent start.
Feedback: ACBL Convention Charts
I mentioned this above, but one reason for signing ACBL is stuff is so those who want multi's in general use can vote for people who support that position and against those who don't.
Feedback: ACBL Convention Charts
Not to mention the question of penalties for using a convention that is allowed, but not in the current event. And can a pair be penalized for just listing such a convention on their card, even if it is never used?
Feedback: ACBL Convention Charts
One important reason for signing ACBL documents, is that when it comes time to decide for whom to vote (or promote or fire) or whatever, members could make more informed decisions. For example, I would tend to favor anyone who wants earlier starting times or oppose anyone who feels that ...
Simon Stocken's bidding problem: AK86543 J4 A64 3
Bid 6 & hope we don't have 2 immediate heart losers that get cashed. You also don't specify form of scoring - at mp it's usually not good to stop in 5 making when cue bids have directed the defense & others are in 4 making 6.
Simon Stocken's bidding problem: AK86543 J4 A64 3
I'd tend toward immediate 4H, then RKC over 4S
David Parsons's bidding problem: J95 J6 AK73 KT76
I would have rebid 2N (J9x is a virtual spade stopper) and never 3C with a bad hand and 4-4 in the minors.
