about me

I am giving up playing the game due to , in my opinion, the ACBL's colluding with known collusive cheaters to defraud ACBL members from titles and sponsorships. I am also disgusted with inept management (who schedules a national in Hawaii anyway? It's beautiful but out of many's affordabilty...B.O.D., this looks BAD when you grant yourselves a trip, room, and board there.)


I will continue to teach but will no longer support the ACBL until these issues have been addressed to my satisfaction.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Wow, another rule I get to learn. Wonderful. In my experience as a teacher, getting students to play by rote is a sure way to stunt their development; yes, a few rules are good 'to get them off the ground' but reliance on aphorisms doesn't develop skills. Everyone would ...
Bob Okker's bidding problem: AJ52 K5 K93 AKJ5
@ Gregory I'm not planning to bid clubs later. Maybe partner might and that will be fine.
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: T43 T83 T862 T93
Why Marshall, you've never talked your opponents out of something? :) In fairness, you are right IMO. I've just seen too many 'bad' bids pay a dividend to ignore (what I hope is) an innocuous bid to help derail an enemy auction.
Steven Mcgrahan's bidding problem: J876 T QJ52 K987
I do not have a gadget for this sequence, nor do I wish to ponder one. Trying to cater to everything IMO is a sign of insanity.
Robin Hillyard's bidding problem: --- A542 AK96543 53
Remember, we were all Juniors once...
Richard Willey's bidding problem: 932 K942 9 AKT62
I'd put 4 on the table, and after the hand was over tell them to cut the crap.
Richard Fleet's bidding problem: T43 T83 T862 T93
I don't think 2 promises the earth, just some diamonds.
Bob Okker's bidding problem: AJ52 K5 K93 AKJ5
I know the 'in' thing to do is to set the force immediately with 2, and there is merit in that approach. However, it's just too ingrained in my bridge soul that if a partner bids clubs-then-spades, I'm going to play them for longer clubs. If I ...
Johan Karlsson's bidding problem: T9832 J8 K5 KT74
Given that my hand is decent for hearts and that my doubleton diamond may prove useful, I wan to keep hearts in play. IMO 2 accomplishes this better than 2NT or 3.
Ron Lel's bidding problem: K863 J2 A92 A962
Make your one descriptive noise and get out of Dodge.
