about me

I started playing in 1976, and loved it!!  I quit playing for periods of time when my 3 children were young.  By the third child, I had her enrolled in Mothers Day Out before she was born and played once a week.  After they were all in school, I played as often as I could during the week and went to tournaments around the Houston area (numerous) where I lived.  I was elected President of the Friday Club at the Houston Bridge & Games Studio and was the youngest ever to hold that position.  At the end of my year, I received a standing ovation which is one of my fondest memories.  I became a Life Master in Dallas in 1984 and became a Diamond Life Master a couple of years ago.  Now I have 5350 MP and unlike so many, I am proud of them.  I am also a club director, an accredited ACBL teacher and owned a bridge club for 3 years before moving to Mississippi.  We live only 9 minutes away from the ACBL headquarters because my husband insisted on being "close to work."  Moving was  an adjustment, having lived in Scottsdale, AZ for 21 years.  After 6 years, I have found that I love northern Mississippi, my home, and my newer friends.  We have a very fulfilling life here.  I now go to almost all of the nationals for 15 days (5 days earlier than they start), several regionals and local sectionals.  I enjoy visiting my children and grandchildren and feel fortunate that they all 3 live in Houston. So, now I have updated my profile as suggested and hope others will too so we can be more of a "community."

Your Favorite Holiday Party Bridge Story
About 30+ years ago, I was playing with my unpolished partner who frequently got frustrated. He was irritated with himself for a bidding mistake he had made on the prior hand and included me as a contributor to his lack of success. So to retaliate against me, he passed my ...
Attitude or Count Signal?
I would play the 2. Partner knows that I do not have a hand with any values from the bidding, seeing dummy and his own hand and the only way I can help in defense is to give count.
Do You Count Your Cards?
When I pick the cards up, if they slide out of the tray too easily or I have to struggle to get them out, or if it doesn't feel right, I count. LOL
Jones Tapped to Head ACBL
Congratulations Joe! Good luck to you. I wish you the very best!
Dahl and Oshlag Win Fast Pairs
Richard would never get penalized for slow play in the Fast Pairs! He plays fast regularly. :) Dummy hits, makes his plan, and before you know it, the board has been well played, in a flash. Love it!
Dahl and Oshlag Win Fast Pairs
Richard and Mark!! Two in a row? Congratulations.
ACBL Regional Tournament Attendance/Cost Issue
IN My Opinion, the B/C/D players have been brought up in a false environment where they have been protected and granted master points without any regard to their actual ability. Their puffed up image of themselves as successful bridge players DECLINES when they must advance (prematurely because of ...
Congratulations, Jim Munday!
I think that's fantastic, Jim. We are proud of you in northern Mississippi.
Daniel Jackson's bidding problem: A6 AT963 AQ6 KJ9
I think with the 5 card heart suit, and the wide range of no trump overcall, this hand is too good to overcall 1N.
Gidwani is ACBL's Next CEO
And don't forget that the A players have to travel to other cities to play in the ACBL-wide games, STAC games to get full awards, on holidays and on the Longest Day. I wonder who else has to do this in all of ACBL-land? None?
