about me

I love playing bridge, teaching bridge, and just thinking bridge. My best friends are bridge pros; my father-in-law (Marc Jacobus) is a bridge pro; my daughter's boyfriend is a bridge pro, etc. You get the picture. My wife (Phyllis Harris) would probably be a bridge pro had we met earlier than 7 years ago. As it is I convinced her to quit practicing law in order to travel the world with me and my posse of Bridge Pros. I love my life

Tricky ruling
3 jacks facing a passed partner. South knew his opponents had a. minimum of 26 hip,. but decided it was more likely his partner had psyched a 1st seat pass than the opponents were having an accident. I would give an appeal without merit penalty to NS. Players can't ...

And Another One Bites the Dust
As someone who has known Mike Passell for over 35 years, I have no doubt of Mike's ethics, at and away, from the bridge table. All of you who are denigrating him, have not read that he was found NOT guilty of any ethics violations. I, for one, have ...
What is your bid?
Pass, but with one less , I would bid 2

Response to Kit: You said, "I think the argument for not saving if the 3C just shows clubs is as strong if not stronger than the argument for not saving if the 3C call is a diamonds raise" If I submitted a poll: Given the alternative meanings of 3C, do ...
USBC Appeal #1
Response to Bud: The AC write-ups ARE sent to those involved, who are asked to check for factual errors. When I corrected comments attributed to me I was told that the telephonic connection was poor (this was a telephone committee), which might explain the mistakes, but that my comments didn ...
USBC Appeal #1
South Speaks: The AC writeup states, "South contended that he was concerned that if West ended up playing in 6D that North might not lead a singleton club". Apparently this was how the committee interpreted what I actually said, which was 1) I assumed East's failure to raise diamonds ...
Bidding Decision 1
