about me

In 2003, I won the North American Pairs B.

My play of the hand has been featured in the (late) New York Times bridge column.

I am an expert vugraph commentator on Bridge Base Online, and a popular lecturer, teacher and professional.

I have served on the West Los Angeles Unit Board since before the turn of the century and am currently in my fourth term as the Unit President.

I practice tax law in Westwood and also frequently handle purchases and sales of aircraft, yachts, and major works of art.

I am a four-time California crossword champion. I have also been a U.S. Open tennis umpire and a professional film critic.

Thousands of my movie reviews can be found at

I also enjoy attending concerts, theater, and Clippers and Kings games.

I live in the North Westdale area of West Los Angeles with my boyfriend of eleven years, Daniel, and our Rottweiler, Gia.

When the opponents have an 8-card fit, GIB thinks KQ9x and the like in their suit are ideal for a marginal bid in our suit.

I'm sure that if lots of people feel they should have received some sort of masterpoint award this time, the payouts will be more generous and widespread next time.

I have one or more women friends - Jim may even know one or more of them - who have said with a straight face that they think women's events are awful and should not exist and they will stop playing them as soon as they win one.

For regular robot players, 24 boards takes about half an hour - maybe a little less, maybe a bit more.

I predict huge success for this event and look forward to an IMPs version as well.

Actually, I didn't "make them up" and I don't appreciate that accusation. I went back and pulled the hand records to address your complaint.
