about me

I'm from the Washington, DC area.

I usually attend 2 or 3 NABCs per year.  I've reached the stage where I'm disappointed not to qualify for the second day (I often get to the second day) and pleasantly surprised to make the overalls.

I'm the president of my unit and a frequent bridge volunteer.

I'm an attorney.  My other hobbies are dancing, hiking, and knitting.

Ethics, gamesmanship and the law
It's not uncommon for declarer to concede the rest of the tricks with several tricks left.
Ethics, gamesmanship and the law

Ethics, gamesmanship and the law
The rules say you're not entitled to this information after the hand. Dave could have found out by unnecessarily playing 2 rounds of hearts (in this case, one round since one defender shows out on the first heart trick), but there's also a rule against unnecessarily playing a ...
Ethics, gamesmanship and the law
I don't think it's gloating; I think it's information about the possible state of the match, and I think it's allowed to not give an answer (though in the long term this will be a big waste of time because declarer could get the information by ...
MONTREAL "Summer Nationals" in July
It may just be a problem with the presentation on the website. Monday isn't highlighted so it doesn't look like an available checkout date but that just means it's not an available night.
Rebidding a minor suit at the 4-level
I've heard it called an anti-splinter.
XYZ question
The first one is a slam try and the second one is invitational with at least 6 hearts (whether it says anything about suit quality is up to you and your partner).
can you field a psyche based on opponents mannerisms/ questions?
There are questions and then there are questions. There's the opponent who says "what is your agreement about the xx bid" and then passes calmly, and then there's the opponent who asks whether the bid is natural and asks enough follow-up questions that everyone at the table knows ...
Rock, Paper, Scissors
The 1 opener seems anti-field to me. Assuming a roomful of mostly strong notrumpers, most of the field should be in 3N (either from west opening 3 and east bidding 3N or from east opening 1N and east either going right to 3N or checking for diamond support ...
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
It was free. The hardest part was finding the 15 year old postcard with my ACBL number.
