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."

Common game deal Wed 16 April
If RHO started with four hearts, QJx, and precisely two clubs (albeit much more restrictive than the layouts Andy's line handles), I think we can make by discarding a spade at Trick 1, ruffing the club continuation (a spade shift might be fatal but seems hard to find), and ...

Memory/Visualisation
For most of us, being truly engaged seems to be key to remembering something. Rehearsing the information—whether by writing it down, picturing it, imagining hearing it (again), or other method—helps engage the mind.

Also, the cards (presumably) don't overlap; that is, the entire face of each card is visible.
