about me

Bridge player/teacher/writer and Bridge Winners admin. When not playing bridge I'm writing plays. Or more accurately procrastinating, telling myself I should be working on a play. I live in New York City and am on the board of GNYBA (Unit 155) and serve as New York's Youth Bridge Coordinator.

Parrish Convention or Spaderight after 2!H Bust
There's a lot of benefits from having 2 be GF. And from not having to use the cheaper minor as artificial. (I feel like I always have a decent hand with clubs when I play that method.)
NABC Online Pledge: Join Me With a Camera?
Does this mean we have to wear pants?!?
Fall National and all remaining 2020 Sectionals/Regionals Cancelled
I don't see why units and districts are upset. Speaking generally, they have few if any fixed expenses, unlike clubs which typically have rent payments. So they can't hold tournaments this year. Seems a small price to pay to keep their memberships safe. I think ACBL has made ...
The ACBL Convention Charts Are Too Restrictive
The whole idea of different charts for different events is to let people choose to play in an environment in which they feel comfortable. You were in a limited game; there should be restrictions there. You want to play your system, time to graduate to the open. You'll be ...
best practice online?
I would volunteer it only if he asked.
