about me

I've enjoyed playing cards since I was a kid and Bridge is the ultimate card game. I played heavily in 2006-2009 while going to college and then disappeared for a while when the limited vacation days made it hard to go to tournaments. I have a bit more free time recently and have been getting back into it again, what a great game!

 

For day job stuff I build custom native mobile apps for Android and iOS and my main other consistent interest has been hiking. I'd like to get into backpacking although I haven't done it yet. Other interests over the years have been Magic the Gathering, Gardening, Go, Eve Online, and tabletop games like Terra Mystica.

Radical Revamp of NABC Schedules?
Rather than delving into specifics: I just wish the BOD would put together a committee or something and take a serious look at nationals schedules. Specifically, it would be great to see them rework the schedules with an eye to making it so people have something to play as often ...
Open Honolulu Discussion Thread
Seems like directors are having problems getting stuff into Live again. This is the 4th NABC of the last 5 where I've been trying to find stuff on Live and there are problems. In this case, the A/X/Y pairs from Monday still hasn't posted the evening ...
Open Honolulu Discussion Thread
Any word on what the BOD motions and vote results were?
OMG! $70 **PER TABLE** Luxury Tax
2 quick comments: 1) One of our main competitors (in the younger set) is Magic the Gathering. An entry fee for the main event is $75, which covers both days of competition (not everyone makes day 2). In addition, a large amount of cash is paid out to participants. My ...
Update from the Bridge Podcasting World
Hi John, A bit off subject but I am having trouble finding info. What's going on with Double Dummy? Have been looking forward to seeing it for a while now (a couple years I think?) and still not sure how to watch it. Might be fun to have a ...
Ripped Off
Time to cancel my planned bank robberies and hit up ACBL regionals instead! Jokes aside, seems pretty awful for the employees that had stuff stolen under their watch. Easy to cast blame now, but humans aren't perfect. Finding ways to have a whole let less cash involved would seem ...
ACBL Attendance Dropoff - 2016-2018
We've had Canadians let us know that they won't be coming down for sectionals/regionals because of political/hostility reasons as well.
Precision interference
Why isn't just 4+ hearts an option for the first part? Why isn't 4-4 one of the options for the 2nd part?
Redoubling Isn't Rude
I XX for business often at imps, rarely at MPs and never if I am worried about them running. In Philadelphia, I XX'd 3NT twice in the same week and was making jokes about getting a 3NT XX'd t-shirt after that.
Falling numbers in Orlando
Primary reason for me: No regular partner was interested. The reasons for that vary, but essentially come down to: 1) Location. Nobody is ever excited about Orlando. It also seems pretty expensive. Why isn't this in Vegas? 2) Schedule. The team events are the main attraction with pair events ...
