about me

Member National Ethical Oversight Committee, National Conduct Committee, Member National Appeals Committee, (before they did away with it),

member both Goodwill and Charity committees 

D20 Recorder (for many years, took a decade off, now I'm back), former D20 Disciplinary chair, playing duplicate since 1978 or so.


Personal property appraiser (real life: as in antiques road show meets hoarders)

 I tell people what their stuff is worth, and sell some of that stuff on behalf of my clients 

I used to golf once a week, no longer (bad back and bad golf is a terrible combination). 

Before bridgewinners I used to do other things, but not so much any more......

Good point
Question for the matchpoint mavens
Thanks for all the answers. 4S was doomed, but 3S was probably going to make. If the diamond hook had been on 3NT and 5D would have been easy, and 4S would have had play. Partner's hand xxx, Kx, AQJxxx, AJ. As partner was putting down dummy he said ...
Question for the matchpoint mavens
sorry I can't add, though obviously I should have

Think globally, act locally?
Randy I've been D20 recorder (with a break) for over 25 years. The famous Ron Anderson vs the Juniors case in Reno (1997 or so) was the result of recorder forms. The system worked for a while, then stopped working because the national recorder realized he could do nothing ...
