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.

ACBL Big Ideas - Augmenting Rank/Point Structure
The higher ranks increase in gold requirements and then platinum requires 100 platinum points.
ACBL Big Ideas - Augmenting Rank/Point Structure
I don't know that the people who can't get the gold to hit LM are in huge need of more/harder goals.
Settle A Bet
I would consider it a limit raise, but wouldn't be upset at a partner who felt otherwise
Is ACBL Aiming for Ridicule?
I don't really get the furor over a "national title". If it doesn't count for GLM status, then the "national title" is just a marketing ploy.
Interview with Gavin Wolpert
SoundCloud is usually how I see people sharing podcasts in a place that's easy for people to access with a browser.

BW 2/1: Jumps to 3NT
I never would have imagined anything other than moderate extras getting more than a couple votes. Shows how little I know!

@Richard Reitman: Can you share a link to this simulation?
Forgive this not being a bidding poll
I voted for need help in spades, but admittedly most of my more in depth conversations on Drury have been in strong club partnerships where the suit setting/slam try demanding a cue option doesn't make sense.
Fewest HCP for game bid and made?
Pretty sure 11HCP is my min for a game bid and made. Slam I remember 17 for sure as one that I bid to make (and avoided the temptation to XX), not sure if I've bid and made a slam on less than that.
