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

Thanks to Jay Whipple
A few personal thoughts: Hawaii is an inappropriate venue NABC A competent travel agency would be a profit center for ACBL I don't know why there aren't packages including flights from major cities (LA, Vegas, Dallas, NYC, Miami) that include charter flight & 10 days of hotel. I don ...
Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
The wonders of typos!! This article begins; "The last time I played bride ended badly." I concur, that if I played bride it would definitely end badly. :)

JC I am puzzled by "As I wrote it ou said it a lot of times, we may like or not the decision of CAS (and I don't think that you may find any word from me anywhere where I'd have said that I like it), but it ...

Ray I love discussions of cocaine at the table that state there should be a line. Even though it is not our drug of choice, having it readily available would certainly increase the popularity or bridge. Although I guess extasy & oxy should also be available. LOL

I can speak to Larry Flynt and producers of PokerGo - Let's start BLB - Barely Legal Bridge.

I'm not sure if I should add this to this thread or the one called answer to Sabine's question or if it is even relevant. Bridge (like chess, puzzles, learning music or foreign languages) are all considered to be performance enhancers. They enable better brain function & stave off ...

Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
Each time I hear of what IMHO is another idiocy by the ACBL, WBF or similar bridge organization, I feel we only have ourselves to blame. We created these groups. We voted for their personnel. Then when they produce decisions we don't like (re-admitting known cheats and excluding relatively ...
BLASS (NPC) Wins 2018 Reisinger
A key game skill is the ability to crush bad (or in this case, relatively weaker) players and teams. The importance of this skill is lost in KO formats, which emphasize the ability to grind out a small victory against a strong team and devalue the ability to destroy a ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
My favorite Vic Mitchell story is from a money bridge game in which his partner lead the ace of diamonds. He wanted his pard to switch suits, but his spots were T98 ( playing standard signals.) He followed with the 8, but missed the table & dropped the 8 to the floor ...
