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......

Club Ruling
So if you don't double you stopped playing bridge. And if you double you were taking an illegal double shot (excuse the pun), as you get a good board if it goes down, and call the cops if it makes, thus meaning no matter what you do, as the ...

ATB: missed slam

Who should sleep on the couch?
You, because Annie is obviously catering to your long history of terrible overcalls ;)
How Angry Should We Be?
ACBL mishap that cost less than $750000 is a pretty good day compared to some
Please comment on the Ruling
The director assumed he understood precision, which obviously he doesn't, and then projected what he would have done had he bid 1, rather than adjusting the result so as not to punish the victims of the misinformation. This strikes me as another one of those idiotic "protect yourself ...
Thank you Zia!
Great story. Congratulations to both of you and thanks for sharing!
Easy ATB, but how should the auction have gone?
Yu, I figured posting the initial problem would be a waste of time, with everyone doubling or explaining the great treatment they have to show this hand. Now that a player a lot better than I am has stated 4 is normal, it's apparent that my assumption was ...
He never sleeps on the couch
You played against juniors and they didn't overcall when you opened 1?!? not possible.....
