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.

Bridge logic - what does this auction suggest?
If 2 said nothing about a diamond stopper, 3 must be asking for a stopper. I'd think the subsequent pull to 4 means responder has a singleton diamond and had slam interest in spades if opener didn't have enough in diamonds to bid 3NT.

Youth bridge in Buffalo
Just want to remind everyone that there is a youth bridge forum. I'm going to move this there.
Do You Count Your Cards?

Zonal Governance Proposals
The BOD has gotten some very poor legal advice from the league's counsel over the years. Having people on the board itself who understand the law and can question the legal opinions the board is receiving is invaluable. Adding A.J. Stephani recently has been a huge boon in ...
Zonal Governance Proposals
The ACBL board needs certain expertise. With representative elections, it's a crap shoot whether we get what we need. As Don points out, the larger the board, the more likely we have the expertise needed. I'm a huge proponent of decreasing the size of this board, but the ...
Hool - A Prelude to Bridge
How is the concept of "Game" explained when all contracts are worth the same 10 points per trick?
4 Convention Cards on the table possible motion
If the only "standard" system the ACBL endorses is so bad it is used as a penalty, maybe it's time for a new standard.
Falling numbers in Orlando
The WBF makes the ACBL look like a shining beacon of governance and competence. Look at the difference in how they handled cheaters: they're banned in the ACBL while the WBF couldn't make a conviction stick in this crystal-clear case thanks to their subservience to the Olympics and ...
Falling numbers in Orlando
Orlando is certainly a part of the reason I'm not there. But mostly it's that I have no interest in attending a WBF tournament until they prove that they are an organization worth supporting by overhauling their leadership, cracking down on cheaters, and abandoning the CAS. (I'm ...
