about me

'Advanced' Intermediate level of skill.  I wish I had more time to play outside of BBO, but having a young child limits the number of tournaments and club games you can play.  

I'm always interested in learning as much as I can to become a better player.  I like playing against experienced players and playing in 'open' events instead of I/N for the higher quality of play.

Things that made me burst out laughing during Bridge
First sectional I played in was with my wife's 91 or 92 year old Grandmother. I was in my early 30s and one pair asked her if we were related. She looked at my RHO and said stone faced "he's my gigolo". The entire table didn't stop ...
David Scharfbillig's bidding problem: 9x 9xxx Q9x AT9x
My partner told me I should have bid 4 directly (instead of 3) holding AQTxx AKJTxx x x because I had the 6th heart in my hand and only 2 minor suit cards. For all I know she could have been broke with 2s but I'd ...
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: QT8764 3 T85 732
I love the discussion here given I'm a NLM. I'd pass the first round (I always dig a hole for myself bidding 2 with that type of hand) and 4 on round 2. I passed this hand though based on the actual sequence in the poll ...
Open Memphis Discussion Thread
Memphis BBQ is very good if you're going to Horn Lake. Central is excellent as well. The best I've had is at Germantown Commissary but it's a good 30 minutes from downtown so probably not a realistic option.
Memphis hotels
I travel to Memphis a lot for work. I've stayed at that Doubletree twice and both times were very average at best. The rooms could use some major updating and plan on 20-30 minutes to get your car in the morning from the valet.
Declare 7NT - the actual layout and the subtle mistake I made
I was North and had to lead against this slam, but it was in 6NT. Alarm bells were going off in my head against leading a but I still did it and declarer made 7 easily.
So Cool ... And Kind of Mean
Thanks Greg. My 6 year old has been saying she wants to learn and your rules seem really simple
Steven Gaynor's bidding problem: 65 T5 K82 AJ9875
I voted what I bid at the table since I held this hand, but I was strongly considering 3NT as well
Open DC Discussion Thread
I stayed in DuPont circle 3 blocks from the Red Line. From there it was 1 stop to the Marriott. It was $85 a night all inclusive after splitting the cost with my partner for a small condo. The Uber ride was about $5 the one time we needed it
Open DC Discussion Thread
Got home yesterday from the NABC (my 2nd one ever). Although we missed qualifying for the Flt C GNT knockout by 2 VPs after getting blitzed in the final round I had a really good time. The games we played in Thurs - Sat all started on time. I had a ...
