about me

Semi-retired mathematician (numerical analysis, applied math, linear algebra, statistics, etc.) I like woodworking, especially wood turning. I enjoy writing up bridge hands, which I find can improve my own play, by forcing me to think about what is happening at the table.

Changing a card played after a revoke
Yes, I do recognize that the defender should not be able to ask that question. But it seems that, preventing them from being able to resolve the matter now should also allow East to play in a reasonable manner, not play in an unreasonable way. Had West not won the ...
Changing a card played after a revoke
My take, which in my opinion is just based on logic and the concept of restoration of equity, though perhaps not on the law itself... Lets say that South leads the diamond jack. West has a small diamond, but for whatever reason, ruffs instead. Declarer has dummy pitch the club ...
Oh boy! As an A player, I'd love to show up to play in that half table section. How does the movement work? 13 sit out rounds? Of course, they would be first in their section, so they would "win" A, and the ACBL would pay out master points ...

Lightening Strikes Twice
So, would that have been a Franklinian slip?
Tablets with a table feel
I have some friends who like to get together, all four at a kitchen table, and play on BBO, with tablets. They can still talk with each other, so social interaction is no problem. But they get the advantages of alerts that are seen only by opponents. They get complete ...
Common game 9 October afternoon board 23
When we played that board, partner also opened a 14+ to 17 1NT. North overcalled 2♡, natural. I was contemplating passing it out myself, opposite a possible 14 count if North had said nothing, but once 2♡ was in the mix, what to do? Partner rags on me for not ...
ATB - Hopeless grand
East fell in love with his hand. Not like I've never done that before. But here, it was pretty much all East in my eyes.
I tried to like this response twice, but that just makes it a null-like. So assume I've liked it an odd number of times n, for odd n>1.
David, is that a snarkish reference? Let me count, did he say so 3 times?
