about me

My parents taught me bridge at the family dinner table when I was six. I played casually for the next 20+ years then joined the ACBL in my late 20s and have slowly but progressively grown more serious about bridge. Now in my mid 60s, I'm more enthusiastic than ever and still working to improve my game.

What's the thickest part of your system notes?
3412 nice things to say to my partner - and still adding material
Andonis Dalgas's bidding problem: KQ95 84 QT42 A54
IMHO this is entirely a matter of partnership agreement. I have a slight preference for opening, but will do what partner expects. Most of my partners expect me to pass this, so I voted for pass.
Board 3 Day 1 Session 1 LM Pairs
In theory, using the actual play from other tables rather than a poll seems good. In practice, finding tables that had the same auction, same carding agreements, and same play up to the critical point might be difficult.
Is this a way to run an organization?
I like the idea of allowing a smaller top flight. I'd let the directors decide if the top flight played one two-day event or two one-day events, either KOs or round robins. I also like the idea of permitting any team to enter the top flight up to a ...
Poll Regarding Drop-Ins from Soloway to Blues
As far as I'm concerned, the more the merrier.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: AKQxxx KTxx Ax T
With most partners, the 4 bid denies an outside A or K.
Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: A643 AJT65 7 AK2
In most of my partnerships, 3 is natural and 5-5 (at least) in the red suits. In some it is invitational, in others forcing, but always with decent suits.
Drop ins to the Blue Ribbons
I probably won't play this event, but I'm all for drop-ins in general, especially if they don't push out the lowest qualifiers. To my mind, the point of playing in NABCs is to play against tough fields. That being said, I'd be delighted to win a ...
Marion Gebhardt's bidding problem: AKTxx Axx Jx AJx
A very good 1 overcall, but not a max in most of my partnerships
John Portwood's bidding problem: KJT764 AT5 --- AQ54
I would have bid 4 directly. The scenic detour may have given the opponents a nice view, but I'll 4 anyway.
