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.

Test your analysis, COMMON GAME 13 DEC BOARD 5
I'd bet the Rueful Rabbit could find it though. One could even wrap a little story around it too.
@Avon - HEY! Stop passing around rumors that pizza is not in the vegetable family. I base my entire diet around that idea, in my eternal quest to eat more healthily. Next, you are probably going to tell us that fruitcake is not really a fruit.
How much did the ACBL ode in Hawaii?

Nutrition/fitness levels of top bridge pros
This was the very first thing that came to my mind. When I see a picture of any group of top level poker players, few of them are 70 or older. Yet if I look at any large group of bridge players, certainly in the US, I am still often ...
Jones Tapped to Head ACBL
"he might have a clue where our $5,000,000 actually went to." Actually, it was recently offered to me, by a nice fellow from Nigeria, I believe. The money should be arriving any day now. :) :)
Avoiding another Honolulu
Problems in that too. - All bridge tournaments use local volunteer support heavily. Making sites permanent will overwhelm that volunteer base. The result will be the ACBL will then need to bring in and pay extra people to do what was done for free before. - Not all people want to fly ...
We need names for the BOTs
I've usually used leftbot, rightbot, centerbot, abbreviated to LBO, RBO, and CBO.
