about me

I have finally taken the plunge and opened my own real estate brokerage firm, DML Realty. If you are looking to buy, sell or rent in Manhattan, contact me :)  Unfortunately not much time left for playing, but it makes the times I have to play even more valuable.

An Argument for Attitude
@MM. You wrote "Also, in a non-competitive auction, opps may engineer the final contract so that the vastly superior opp is on lead (in cases where this is clear). " What is clear to me is that if the auction is non competitive, there is no way whatsoever that the opponents ...
David Libchaber's bidding problem: 98 T8754 4 AK862
the reason for this poll is simply because I was playing against the player (a world champion) who bid 4.The defense was difficult to set as his partner had: KQ1094 A2 KQ3 Q3 Declarer erred in the play after the 2 lead to the A and the !Aa ...
Rashomon Redux
Thank you for this hillarious tale, Cameron. I just went ahead and purchased the book.

In my opinion, the greatest bridge example of what Ray is describing is in Bridge Today from a 1991 Reese column I believe. Reese looks at a second hand high play and realizes that he was the declarer...A beautiful and emotional piece of writing.
A Club Organization, part 2
Jeff, If the leverage you are referring to is to keep more money in the club, the league will not allow its cash cow to stop milking (who would?). If as Aaron writes clubs are huge profit centers (I would think tournaments are higher, but perhaps the costs to operate ...

Question for Accountants (of benefit to Pros)
Tomasz, to insinuate that Frances, who has always given thoughtful remarks and contributes intelligently about any issue wouldn't have read about economics and taxation strikes me as really dumb. But then again, I have read enough of your comments prior to this one so I should know better.
Question for Accountants (of benefit to Pros)
One can see the problem with using the gift deduction as payment for services...It doesn't take a genius to realize that skirting taxation is against the law! How would one differentiate to a taxation authority that this is for work and that is a gift - they couldn't ...
What is the meaning of this sequence?
@Mike "Better solution is to give up the silly Bergen raise." Do you really think 'silly' is the correct adjective to describe this bidding convention? Were you around in the eary 90's when LOTT was suddenly released to the general public. This is the only time I witnessed a ...
