about me

I love our game. I'm more interested in improving than in playing, so I study daily. I became a life master back when that was a high achievement (before strats, before MP inflation). I much prefer playing "up" to "playing down," which to me is a totally different game and not much fun. I'd sure like to find an equal and somewhat steady partner here in south Texas, but prospects aren't that favorable. That causes me pain and sends me to the robots for practice. I most enjoy the more difficult and more subtle parts of our game.

I play 2/1 with the normal stuff. I don't much care for the more obscure ones, b/c remembering them distracts from my judgment.

My first month away from the game
Thank you. I'm currently a member of two organizations that I don't support. I have my reasons, of course. Having disdain for an organization in part or even completely isn't a reason to totally reject everything about it. There are aspects to these two organizations that have ...
Hesitation Habits and Unauthorized Information--How to Enforce Law 16 in Practice?
Alright then, but how does everyone know it, and how would I know that everyone does know it?
What is 6!c?
I don't think with a strong partner you'd blast to blackwood if a delicate sequence was contemplated, so for that reason I don't think a club strain is envisioned here. Most slams will be cold. To me, this is asking for an assessment about trump losers for ...

But Ed, how would you know this?
Hesitation Habits and Unauthorized Information--How to Enforce Law 16 in Practice?
I'm not against enforcing Law 16, or any other law. I'm only pointing out the fact that the basis for it is severely flawed in multiple ways that make for profound stupid situations. BTW, I enjoy Mozart, Tchaikovsky, and other forms of real music, as well as the ...
Hesitation Habits and Unauthorized Information--How to Enforce Law 16 in Practice?
In my opinion, "BS" is the idea that one has the uncanny ability to determine what another player is thinking, coupled with a god-like perception to divine that an individual's intention at the bridge table is completely corrupt, and finally to judge that punishment that should be meted out ...
Hesitation Habits and Unauthorized Information--How to Enforce Law 16 in Practice?
Chris, with due respect to your post, I consider it a real stretch to imply that it is me who originally introduced the judging of peoples' mental intentions or assessments as having some rightful place in our game. It doesn't, and I didn't. It's the absurdity of ...
Hesitation Habits and Unauthorized Information--How to Enforce Law 16 in Practice?
I find myself wanting to piggyback on M.H.'s post, but not wanting to categorize myself as, or strongly associate myself with "bad players" in order to do so. Upthread it was claimed that some players enjoy taking time to think about the play, and I'd extend this ...

(1) I do not know Lanzarotti. (2) I'm ashamed for this game.
Lanzarotti Readmitted and the ACBL?
Seems to me there should be a checkblock "nobody cares what members think." I'd go with that one.
