Bridge Director
about me

ACBL assoc tournament director.  I have directed and taught novice and intermediate games off and on for almost 30 years.  I have been directing large games for over 27 years and have been directing at the Washington Bridge League weekly unit game (average 50+ tables per session) for 24 years.  I play about 2-3 times a month.  I'm a dangerous X player, but unfortunately playing infrequently and with widely varied partners, have mixed results.  But I do mentor a number of Flight B and Flight C players in our area.

Summer NABC vs GenCon Indianapolis

Hence why there is typically a certain time limit you can spend in the ...
Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
Hendrik--wow! I was surprised when I found this article saying that 28 years was "nearly" the longest sentence ever handed down for tax evasion. How long was your friend's sentence? https://www.forbes.com/sites/kellyphillipserb/2013/10/10/judge-hands-down-very-nearly-the-longest-sentence-ever-to-public-official-for-corruption-and-tax-fraud/#1f051fc84664
Road to the GNT Final Four Part 1
Wow! I hadn't heard about Mike's latest "news". Congrats Mike. As the dad of young kids, I definitely sympathize. I have the double whammy that young kids restrict how much time I have for bridge and then what time I do have, is usually 75% or more directing ...
Road to the GNT Final Four Part 1
Similar to Sylvia, Fropponents makes me think frappe' opponents (someone you throw a frappe' at?).
NICKELL is USA1
Great performance especially beating such a quality field.
CLERKIN, NPC is Women's USA1
Congratulations! Another big District 6 achievement in 2017.
So Cool ... And Kind of Mean
Thanks. 5 yo competitive twins and will likely start teaching card games soon with bridge to follow at some point in the next few years. I love the concept of minibridge and will be trying it out on them.
