about me

Live in Washington, D.C. area; degree in math, retired from U.S Government.

Played a lot in the sixties/seventies; took 35 years off; came back to play in clubs or occasional regional about 2011. 

According to Newsweek I'm a typical ACBL member:  somebody's grandmother with an aol email address. 

Interested in the discussions about cheating detection and investigation/adjudication processes.

Hi, Larry, Might be close to 50%. Hint: if you poll this (!) make sure you can separate the responses by gender. Just sayin'.
Does the ACBL need more Washrooms at NABCs OR should players be kicked out of tournaments with cause?
An eeeewww thought. Best reason yet, perhaps decisive, for not playing with physical cards. Electronic play anyone?

Please forgive me, can't resist resurrecting the old punchline about the wife who said of her bridge partner husband in similar, but less public circumstances: "First time all day I've known what he has in his hand."
District 9 Wins GNT
Thanks to Jan Martel, the vugraph operators and commentators. What a feast of bridge spectating the GNT was -- especially the final! i hope you know how much how many people appreciate what you do.
If you get a Player Memo
Commenting on an information letter from the ACBL published in a non-ACBL-sponsored forum is "participating in an ACBL activity"? Really? They want to argue that? Interesting. They seem a little, ummm, insecure.
What are you done with?
Follow-ups to irregularities that wouldn't happen if we played electronically (bids/plays out of turn, insufficient bids, etc, etc.) Actually I like these since I have secretary bird tendencies but wish I didn't have to spend time and brain space on them. Tales of inane things that happen ...
