about me

Philadelphia area, but I've been around.  Bridge has taken me to 120 cities across 38 of the 50 United States (and the District of Columbia), Canada, Iceland, and Spain.  Looking forward to seeing more.

It Happened One Day
“It’s one ethics violation, Michael. How much can it cost, ten matchpoints?”
Declarer play to trick 2
To quote Justin Lall in a prior poll (long ago), I will attempt to achieve the game bonus.
What do you expect?
Natural, no second choice.
