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

Crunch Time
My suggestion is that all who sit at their table start the hand and play so slowly that everyone is given an average. The cheats with a string averages or even average pluses will never win anything.
Las Vegas NABC accomodations & activities recommendations, no cars (unless renting is cheap) but we are young enough to walk.
On either side of Cosmo are Bellagio, best NLH games 24-7, and Aria, best for PLO, but also good NLH. There are online sites that offer discount tix to events & shows. There are some free attractions (Fountains & indoor thematic garden at Bellagio are close.)
Could this remark mislead opponent?
If I were the South player and had mistaken thought it didn't matter when I made comment, I'd insist he get one more trick. Similarly, if declarer has AKT left, and claims two tricks, but QJ are doubleton, the defender should tell him to take 3.
Is Bridge a Sport?
Tell that to a 3 Star chef
Is Bridge a Sport?
Yup. I frequently hear someone say, "I'm a big sports fan, I love to watch bridge and chess." And someone else reply, "Isn't bridge a great spectator sport." If one uses the extended or subsidiary definitions of sport, then sexual dalliance and practical joking are sports as well ...
Vegetarian/Vegan eating options in Memphis
There is a great ap HappyCow, which lists vegetarian and veg friendly sites for every location. Since I have been dining with friends I haven't had a chance to test their recommendations in the Memphis area, but I have found interesting spots all over the world using the ap.
Massimo Lanzarotti in Vanderbilt
When I just checked roster on ACBL I saw: 9891560 Massimo Lanzarotti 10.46 10.46 0 Which suggests he is playing and has 10.46 seating points (or perhaps cheating points)

Does anyone know and have they talked to his team members?
The playing longevity of bridge experts v chess experts
Between evenly matched players, the luck becomes a factor in opening choice and preparation. Being well prepared, especially with a trap or novelty, in a variation your opponent chooses can lead to a winning position. FYI in poker Doyle Brunson is in his 80's and still wins in the ...
Massimo Lanzarotti in Vanderbilt
I suggest that no sponsors ever hire him, and anyone friendly with any of his teammates tell them they should be ashamed of playing on a team with him. Assuming, as has been suggested, that he is unrepentant, then those of us who happen to face him, should also insult ...
