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.

Student Scam Warning From ACBL

Class of player
Refusing to claim is just insulting, too, for those beyond novice.
Class of player
Just as the game is not made for rule breakers, it also isn't made for nit-picky bridge lawyers. That's why we have Directors; to run the game and to apply judgment as required. It's plain silly to try to remove the exercise of judgment from our game ...
ACBL Competition and Conventions Committee
If anything is ever developed, when something is finally developed, it will automatically be far superior to this silly UI process of accusing people of cheating without actually saying it.
Defend This Hand with Me
The analysis is sweet, but I'm keen to know the contract at the other table and how that turned out.
2/1: Fast Arrival in NT?
Ray, my first impulse is to assure you that most of what you think you know is most definitely false. However, I assume you may not listen, and for the same reason. Next, I'm trying to figure out why anybody would bid 3 NT in this sequence. Maybe it ...
On teaching play of the hand
My mentor was a natural player; gifted to instantly see full hands and his declarer play was always wonderful. He called me a "rote player" and I'm certain he meant this as an insult. The insult, however, didn't stop me because I loved the game and I loved ...
Why Abstain?
I do it when i dont care
ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
Unfortunately, there is no evidence that too many people are calculating their entertainment expense on an hourly basis, then making their decisions based on math calculations. I can see how people might instead look at the fact of being charged several dollars more than the next guy and conclude that ...
ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
Not only exorbitant, but an unfriendly smack upside the head to a potential ACBL member.
