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.

The value of videos
If there are naked girls running around the table that Im not seeing it, then this definitely provokes me to favor cameras around every bridge table.
Joe Jones's Recruitment Strategy
Let's have a look at some evidence. ACBL has had an in-house marketing department for something exceeding 50 years, and hasn't been able to overcome the plus to minus demographics stated here, that are accelerating. So, now, we are going to turn to an outside marketing firm in ...
Outraged by the USBF
It's not just this. There are also too many Regional tournaments.
Life Master Requirements: Codification Appendix 1-C
Well, that seems funny but it's also almost true. IIRC, it cost about ten dollars to accumulate 0.3 masterpoints way back when. We used to get little slips of paper with 0.03 or 0.01 on them for a dollar.
Anonymous appeal opinion
Except for you, Ed. You don't get an opinion since you're 100% a rules guy, with never any room for opinion (Yes, Ed, I am being a little bit facetious, even though in your case there is obviously zero tolerance of that, with the possible exception of your ...
The ACBL and the 15 second rule
This could be a whole another thread. You've got 15 seconds to get it started.
The ACBL and the 15 second rule
I like playing robot games. GIB doesn't care how long you take to bid. GIB just encourages overbids, then punishes you with perfect defense so you always come up a trick short. What fun! At least I get to take the time required to bid -- or even more -- without ...
Mystery of Barry Crane
Because you don't still think it is silly. It is silly.
