about me

I live in the mountains of western North Carolina (US) and work as a freelance editor of nonfiction. The latter was preceded by two lengthy stints as a systems engineer in the telecom industry. I have written and self-published several books and ebooks (one on bridge, the remainder on chess) and have recorded several digital audio tracks. I last played bridge in 2007.

Effective October 29, 2016, I will try to consistently use the gender-neutral Swedish pronoun "hen," which means "he or she" or "him or her," and the gender-neutral Swedish pronoun "hens," which means "his or her" or "his or hers."

MR: "The only thing that can destroy our game is if we permanently accept cheating - and do nothing to countermand it." EV: "Sorry, but this is pure demagoguery on the basis of black-and-white vision." Having read many of Michael's comments on the subject, it seems to me that his ...

South appears to have started with Ax. South's opting for 3N rather than double suggests two spades. If Declarer holds KQ-tight and East has a stiff diamond other than the ace, then Declarer would threaten to knock out the A, unblock on the second round of spades, cash one ...

Tom, it seems that the string "Unti" was omitted from the start of your comment.

I wonder what N/S would think if they saw this discussion.
Conduct this auction from the Balancing Seat
"4 is cold" [s]It seemed to me that a low trump would beat it, and GIB confirms this and gives several other leads that also work. The Q can be established but not reached in time for a spade discard.[/s] Updated reply: It seemed to me that ...
