about me

Trying hard to learn to play bridge well. Stubbornly believe that is possible despite learning in my 40's.

Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
The first 105 boards of the 2018 USBC round of 16, where we played ROSENTHAL to a draw. (The match was 120 boards, the last 15 were less successful).
Bridge Accomplishments
Won 9 of 17 matches to finish 10th in the 2018 USBC RR. 27th in 2018 Blue Ribbon pairs and a couple other national pairs overalls. Won 2017 GNT-C Nationals (is winning a limited event really a bridge accomplishment? Dunno...)

One Disillusioned NLM
Amy, You wrote. "moving on from disillusionment and competitive bridge. The laws will be of no consequence to me." I hope you will reconsider. I think your passion and caring about what is right and wrong is great for bridge, even if as I said before I think some of ...
Experts playing against newcomers and director calls
I agree Jeff, it depends on the players. Both choices should be available and fully supported in our culture. I would not have argued if Allan had said "Logistics permitting flight C players should never be forced to play against flight A players if they don't want to." But ...
One Disillusioned NLM
Amy, Let me try to constructively suggest another way of thinking about the world that will be helpful for both learning bridge and would not leave you disillusioned here. I will start with my own thinking about this issue. I was playing on day 3 of the Blue Ribbons and ...
Experts playing against newcomers and director calls
@Jeff and @Allan, I am not talking just about me, or juniors who I think also are willing to jump into the deep end. At our local club there are quite a few newer players around my age who I think have some potential who wind up getting caught up ...
Experts playing against newcomers and director calls
I disagree. 1. Re: learning, I have played way up often and I think it has been *great* for my learning. 2. Scores are all relative to expectations. The idea that everyone should expect to have a chance at a decent game no matter who they are playing against makes ...
Experts playing against newcomers and director calls
When I was a new player playing against much more experienced players, the problem was *not* experts or A players calling the director. The problem was B players making up rules, harassing, intimidating, and trying to gain advantage in any way possible. Thanks to this I learned to call the ...
CAVENDISH 2019 - Time to register
@Steve, I agree 100%, many players care a lot about who is invited to play. At first I was excited by the combination of a great field and the hope that we would go unbought for the 2k minimum. Unfortunately this year's schedule doesn't work for me, but ...
CAVENDISH 2019 - Time to register
Thanks Roy. Dunno how I missed that.
CAVENDISH 2019 - Time to register
How much is the entry fee for a mixed pair?
CAVENDISH 2019 - Time to register
Can someone explain how the money is distributed down the rankings and more details about the auction, in particular minimum bids? Given the entry fee for low rated pairs trying to understand the structure to assess any potential income expectations. A link to existing info is fine.
