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."

Why is it so hard to find a new partner?

How do you play this slam?
Perhaps South decided that an accident was more likely than being able to locate the needed quacks or additional shortness.

The personal remarks seem unnecessary.

What might be a partnership rule that defines 4N as a signoff in the uncontested sequence 1-2;2-3;3N-4;4N ?

Ten Endgames for Budding Bridge Fans
When #3 appeared in a tournament report in [i]The Bridge World[/i], the writer called Declarer's line a work of art. So, we're not the only ones who found it subtle.
