about me

I nearly flunked out of college playing so much, won a few things, left my job to play professionally, and haven't looked back. Even my family has mostly come on board. I also do some work for BBO.

I like kibitzing and talking about hands with great players. When I do l, I always try to learn something.

Which ACBL regional Nov 4-10?

Home Team Wins GNT
Nope me! But I have to give each person their own shout out. For Fred, that’s a decent way to begin retirement. For Clee, in the unfortunate circumstance of being inextricably linked to me until death. For Dank, who has had big wins overturned by questionable rulings/appeals three ...
Home Team Wins GNT
I think I am the proudest person on Earth who wasn’t on the team.

If you want to drive just a mile or two, take them to Peppermill. For a longish but doable walk, if they are constantly really hungry as I was at that age, there is a Hash House in Linq. The most affordable food that really is pretty good in walking ...
Thanks, Fred Gitelman
Fred is and has always been the man. He and Sheri have done so much to help me in bridge and in life. A few years ago I was partnering with him in a match. We were ahead after two quarters by so much it was essentially unloseable, but we ...
Petition for NABC+ Midnight KO
Haha I like how Adam is an established superstar and Zach is merely a rising talent.
Can You Outplay Zia?
Phil, fyi in my experience, I have gone back and looked at lots of vugraphs after playing or kibitzing the table. I would say the play is wrong about 25% of the hands by at least a card, though of course it varies tremendously between operators. Some sessions almost every ...
Question for those playing CYZ
There is a way more important drawback than being unable to play in 2. 1 - 1 - 1 - If 2 is forcing to game, opener has a very convenient and common 2 bid, and the auction continues economically. If 2 is forcing to game ...
