about me

I'm an attorney by training but spend most of my professional time managing an investment fund invested in life insurance policies.  I play bridge almost exclusively at the nationals, team trials, and (if lucky) international competitions. Most of my practice comes on bridgebase.com.

\n

I started playing when I was about 8, and duplicate at 11. However, despite some early success,  I didn't play more than a few days a year between 1981 and 1995 as I was pretty focused on my career and had (and still have fortunately) a wife who does not play bridge. I got more serious about bridge around 2003 and feel very fortunate about my success and the partners and teammates I've had. I still think of myself as "young player" but am eligible for ACBL senior events this year (yikes!).

Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
ok, this is my last response to this sort of thing. I frankly no longer care about the substance of the issue. But I totally object to all this griping. the numbering below corresponds to the mike's post. 1. No, we did know about this procedure. I think it ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
why would we have changed them if not in response to requests of the players? So that brad could drop off our team if we win and play in something else (now that you mention it, Joe said he liked playing with Anam . . .)
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
If Mike wants to argue that doing what we did violates the USBF bi-laws I'm ok with that (but this doesn't I'm sure). But to say that we shouldn't have done it because of some agreement between an old USBF board and ITTC and embodied in ...

Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
i understand your point, but we plan on doing this and perhaps a broader consensus will emerge. in the meantime, we really need your input on how to implement this change.
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
well, this is the first I have heard of this. if what you are saying is that the only prohibited dropoffs are for people being paid to drop off, it is possible the board could go along with it. however, it still involves substantial investigation into facts (and maybe motives ...
