about me

currently playing pro after retiring from trading....author of several bridge world articles and one book: "Invitation to Annihilation". no national championships but 100+ regional firsts or seconds.  Photo is from a trip to the fabulous Iceland (BTW: "Icemachine" runs a great club in Reykjavik). Resist the treasonous Orange Abomination.

Director call - have I missed something?
