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, 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 

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

I happened to have emailed Interim ACBL CEO Joe Jones this week about CDN currency issues. Here is his reply: Last October we implemented stable pricing for Canadian memberships, clubs, and tournaments. Also, our Canadian employees are paid in Canadian dollars, there is no adjustment for the exchange rate. Our ...

ACBL Dues Revenue Flow: Bad for Recruitment
Tom Moore, if you own the Arlington Duplicate Bridge Club, a part of your unit which is 20 miles from your Ft Worth provided facility, then how do you share in the unit’s largesse? I am sure there is a way to equalize.
