about me

Available for Teaching.  Should you wish to learn my system and how it can generate games (recently, 73%, 71%, and 84% in Swiss as retained partner), it may open up a new dimension and new world of bridge for you to consider :)




But, you don't have to use my simple but effective techniques.  I'll play what you play as well!




NABC 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th places.  Winner of 26 Flight A Regional KOs, 85 Regionals overall, 1 Nationwide Charity Game, 9,500+ master points.

How could we avoid losing 10 IMPs here
It is automatic to overcall 2 in West, and failing that, N-S generated a fabulous result for themselves with extremely aggressive bidding. A perfect poster child for aggression (E-W failed, N-S achieved).
ATB - Missed slam with double red fit
Virtually all recent YBTJ articles have involved a preempt at the 3-level. While discussions can be had ad finitum, the truth is, bidding in the fact of strong preemptive action is more an art than a science, and miracle fits are usually extremely difficult to land in.
Up or down, Charlie Brown?
I would salivate to play a set game for high money stakes against this West :)
Not again!
Sorry, Bill, I guess that #6 must be referencing other authors, and not to you.
Interesting Suit Combination
Jim, I think most would cover the Q, especially early in the hand. A competent declarer might decide that a Chinese finesse is the only chance, and make that play early. The question is definitely thought provoking, but we don't play in a vacuum, and statistical analysis showing a ...
Interesting Suit Combination

On Bridge Journalism
Avon, thanks for your mild diatribe, and insistence on openness around allegations and/or apparent proofs around cheating. The USA was founded on a set of principles which have led to open courts and court files, almost air-tight protection for news/reporting organizations, and the concurrent rights to a fair ...
The never ending story
Couldn't agree more with John. It's so very easy to state that bidding on either hand is "obvious", when significant vulnerable danger lurks. Even a potential likelihood of +50 vs. and any actual -100 at the 4-level no less, would be quite a loss. Had this been a ...
On Bridge Journalism
Thanks, Nigel. I wanted to mention, though, that the miscreant in Case 1 NEVER admitted to anything at all, and retained massive legal counsel to reduce his penalty to a pinkie slap and prove that he had done nothing wrong. I will look up my extensive article when I get ...
