Beating the world champions in the New England Knockouts.
Bridge Accomplishments
Two open regionals back when winning a regional event meant something. More sectionals and flighted or bracketed regional events than I can remember.

Light takeouts. A direct 1NT overcall is an 8-13 HCP takeout with two or three spades. A direct cue-bid over 1C, 1D, or 1H is an 8-13 HCP takeout with four or five spades. Double is 14+ HCP and can be offshape.

"Table feel"
Back when I was fresh out of college I sat down to kibbitz some world-class players. I had been told to look at only one player's hand but I slipped and took a very quick peek at RHO's hand. When I looked up all four players were staring ...

Three-card major suit openings by Jais and Trezel
In the 1985 Bermuda Bowl, the Austrian team played an aggressive variant of Blue Team Club that included opening three-card majors. They came in second to the US team. There's an ACBL World Championship book from that year that may provide an interesting but limited data set. Unfortunately, my ...

I had to laugh when I read this today: "The Houston Astros may have been caught cheating during Game 1 of the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox on Saturday. "Metro reported on Tuesday that security removed a man claiming to be an Astros employee from the media credentialed area ...

Deb, I don't believe anything Roger Goodell says or any "unnamed sources," particularly information obtained by the Boston Herald, which is essentially a tabloid. The real Boston newspaper is the Globe. I'm also a Kurt Warner fan. There are certain players any sports fan has to admire because ...

Allen, I care much more about the truth than any sports team regardless of what area they represent. Had it been any other NFL team, it wouldn't change my point of view. The fact that the team I've followed all my life was the center of the hysteria-driven ...

Randy, you have no idea what you're talking about and your blind acceptance of the BS that was splashed all over the media by scandal-hungry sports reporters proves it. Those reporters were overjoyed to have something negative to say about the Patriots because it was exactly what the envious ...
Avon Wilsmore and Eugenio Chiaradia
Filming the game is perfectly legal and every team, including college and high school teams, has done it for decades. What Belichick did wrong was to film from the field instead of the coaches' box. He admitted that he was unaware of the rule and paid the fine. It was ...
Avon Wilsmore and Eugenio Chiaradia
This is off-topic but I'm offended by people who believe all the BS spread by the media about the New England Patriots. Randy Breuer commented: "in USA NE Patriots have been accused and convicted a couple times for cheating do you think they have fewer fans today than before ...
