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.

Overstatement of US Deaths from COVID-19 Likely
Fortunately it appears that "crowding out" is not happening. In fact, facilities marked for overflow/non-Covid ER-ICU patients are being converted to handle any possible Covid overflow. The numbers appear to be overblown, but we'll know more in a week. I concur with erring on the high side, but ...
Over My Shoulder: Wed 8 Apr, Thu 9 Apr, Sat 11 Apr
Thanks for taking the time to make and catalog videos of these. As a Linux user I'm not a fan of downloading programs, so watching video is great! Adam thanks for working on the link. It worked for me. Thumbnails didn't load, but probably slow at my end ...
Faulty BBO
There are new video tutorials on this, made by various folks. ACBL maintains a partial list here:
Faulty BBO
I looked here: No joy. As I recall the story was in a bridge book (too). Fellow died and had to play a hand of bridge perfectly double dummy for his soul. His opponents were demons (today they'd be bots!). Hope someone finds the ...
Montreal is still the best place to have Summer NABC. Here's why.
PLEASE STOP THIS GLOOM AND DOOM! If it can be held, it will be safe without all the "social distancing" stuff. No more dangerous than the last Summer NABC, unless you forget your passport.
WHO and CDC revised guidelines for masks
No disagreement there. My concern is that the more successful we are in this phase the longer we will extend the pandemic because we won't have a huge part of the population that had it and are immune -- but given the potential lethality it's reasonable to use a ...
WHO and CDC revised guidelines for masks
It has to do with the behavior of the mask wearer vis-a-vis the mask; touching, adjusting, flipping it up on forhead, below chin, etc. It's worse than just plain air. and halfway clean hands.
Summer NABC Moved
I'll bet you guys are salivating to get back to the trading floor these days! But I guess open outcry is kinda stifled by the 6 foot rule.
WHO and CDC revised guidelines for masks
Let Rodwell or August play the 1880s music on a honky tonky piano.
WHO and CDC revised guidelines for masks
Both points should be obvious. The mask is for protecting other people from the person who wears it, not for self protection (btw wash your cloth masks after use, throw out the paper ones). The other point is that having a town full of bandits really IS kinda funny, especially ...
