about me

I was active in the Professional Bridge Tour during its brief but interesting life.  I play once or twice a month in my club and attend regional and national tournaments when able. I've authored several bridge books and articles including the beginner rubber bridge book Simplicity Bridge in 2009. I'm focused on finding ways to promote our game of contract bridge at the high school and college age levels using new tools and marketing methods. Somewhere along the line I managed to make Bronze Life Master, but not liking the echelons above LM concept I just claim LM. I will continue to play at bridge, hoping to someday come close to learning the game.

When we come out of this we might think merger.

It does make it difficult to tell if partner has a problem or just forgot about the extra action needed to make a bid or play, or is just consulting his convention card and system notes...
To BBO: Please eliminate UI from insta-actions
I just hate when, in a 3 board round, we finish one in 5 minutes and the next is a quick claim, and then the opps (or partner if we are defending) decides to burn up my piss break for a non-existent problem.

In the interim, turn on "confirm bids" and "confirm cards" and that will slow down even the rabbits (whilst saving lots of grief).

Please consider coding for Bumblepuppy pre-bridge. No point counting required, very easy scoring. Bridge before it got crazy hard.

What happens when you give the AI 'puter a couple of boilermakers?
Potential cheating in the coming ACBL Endless Summer Tournament
Just today heard on radio that teachers have a system to freeze out other apps when they are holding classes, so students can't get distracted or screw around.
