about me

As a bit of trivia, together with Donna Compton practicing as Compton & Compton PLLC, we have represented more ACBL members before Ethical Oversight and Attorney Discipline Committee than any other lawyers. To give fair disclosure, this is about 15-20 cases, lifetime.

Also see www.playbetterbridge.com, for video clips and short PDF's of various bridge topics. 

We own the Bridge Academy of North Dallas which was the 13th largest ACBL club in 2017. see www.bridgeindallas.com 

Together with Gary King of Houston, we operate two bridge land cruises a year, one held in August in Santa Fe NM and one held in May in Galveston TX, see www.ulimatebridgevacations.com

The importance of understanding how ACBL players feel about bracketing
Melanie, you might make sure Danny Sprung hears of this. He is Chairman of Competition and Conventions.
Childcare at Las Vegas
Shawn, Donna Compton will try to put you in touch with other similarly situated families. Other families have already contacted her. I will say, I do not agree that Vegas Childcare was cancelled because of expense; rather, the hotel would not allow a childcare -Vegas does not want to attract ...

How many Countries can you represent in your life?
In 2018, The Bridge Academy of North Dallas chose to prohibit both concealed and open carry. Upon request, we returned one septuagenarian female’s membership fee — when she wrote us and protested “I have always had a gun in my purse at your club and I am not going to ...
How many Countries can you represent in your life?
I advise that we allow women’s event to die out naturally (which certainly appears to be happening). Best of luck to anyone who might try to eliminate them abruptly.
System Filing for Late-Added Pairs
Having a 7 board or 9 board sit out is not a big issue.
System Filing for Late-Added Pairs
Simple, you want the deadline for entry as late as possible to allow more teams. Every additional team matters. Closing entries early is bad for bridge. Plenty of time for the other filings.
System Filing for Late-Added Pairs
We neither need, nor desire, the early entry date. An early entry date conveniences the organizer (minimally, at that) and is bad for the players.
How many Countries can you represent in your life?
Yes, you right, wrote too fast, the Olympiad passport, all else less. Two passports means you can play for either — simple, yes you could prohibit switching — nightmare and subject to commercial pressure.
