about me

I live just north of Houston.  I practice law for a living (or used to, not so much anymore).  I have been married to Sally Wheeler for (well, a long time).  We have two (allegedly) adult offspring and two cats.  We enjoy bridge, hiking, and various board games.  I am a registered nerd who enjoys such strange things as Shakespeare and Beethoven.

Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
In a Spingold match against Kaplan-Kay, dummy held KTx of spades. My partner discarded the J from AJx. Kay led a spade toward dummy, announced the he wasn't born yesterday, and played the king. Everyone laughed. (We lost by a large margin).
Bridge Accomplishments
Many top 10s in NABCs.
Regular Bridge Partners
Sally Wheeler; Cindy Bernstein
Favorite Tournaments
2006 Fall Nationals in Hawaii; Sally and I were celebrating our 30th. We didn't play a card!
Favorite Conventions
12-14 NT. Oh, that's a "treatment." If it must be a "convention," splinters.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
The law won
Mike M: I realize this is a "pre-balance" situation, but my partner is known for having her bids. She even holds six-card suits once in awhile. Even if she has only five, a singleton in opponent's suit is grounds for stretching the LAW.
Slobodan Guzvica's lead problem: QT83 A65 AQ KT87
I doubled 1NT (T/O of s), and partner is likely struggling to make 2. If I forgot to X, the 3 seems indicated.
Slobodan Guzvica's bidding problem: AT4 6543 Q8 K632
I think allowing opponent's X to change your constructive auction at the 1-level is a bad idea.
James Creech's bidding problem: AQ82 Q752 5 AJ93
Yes. No agreement is provided, but I have guessed that 4 would show a minimum game force and this hand is slightly too strong. Lacking multi-range splinters, that leaves 2NT.
Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: K8 AT87 AQ6 JT76
I also failed to notice that partner is a passed hand.
Henry Sun's bidding problem: JT942 Q74 7 T532
Would Marty Bergen open 2?
The law won
If E-W bid 3, I have it on inside information that South will bid 3 (which makes easily). Only David knows whether he's bidding 4.
Barry Dehlin's bidding problem: J642 2 AT97432 T
I make whatever bid shows a slam invitation with long diamonds. 3, forcing 3NT, followed by 4, is popular in my area.
Summer NABC Moved
Darn!!! I was looking forward to Sioux Falls. --:)
Peter Lipp's bidding problem: 942 K4 Q97 AQJ97
The people that I know who play this play it with a STR / Canape system. The range is 11-15. Yes, it can be 5=4(0-4).
