about me

Chessmaster (used to be Ranked 50th in Canada)

Had taken up club level bridge 5 years ago. I devote a good amount of time to studying bridge. I am a solid player, regularly winning or placing in various club events with pick up partners. I am interested in playing in national events in the top brackets.  I have won (as a team-player) a couple of zip  knockouts in NABC events)

I primarily play in midwest area but am willing to travel to various regionals.

Currently studying Rudinesco, Martens etc

Country
United States of America

Forcing or not?
Thanks Dale. I have been mainly looking at some old Mike Lawrence hands I guess.
-590: assign the blame
