about me

I used to teach psychology (experimental, cognitive, statistics) and greatly enjoy both the human and technical aspects of the game. My goal is to become a competitive A-level tournament player before age catches up with me.

Will B&M clubs be able to survive C-19?
You think I haven't done that. We are Unit 537 and Unit 536 and I contacted Greg in mid-March and again later and was assured our place in line was being kept. Meanwhile, we sent our members to another Virtual Club so they would have someplace to play. Meanwhile ...
Will B&M clubs be able to survive C-19?
Do you think we didn't do that? I submitted our request to Greg Coles weeks ago (at the same time as larger clubs who have since gone online), but we have heard nothing back from ACBL. They are putting clubs online in order of size. Your description is how ...

Ribbon events
Qualifiers are sometimes used to evaluate potential partners on the ACBL online partnership desk. They separate the folks who play largely on BBO or in club games from the regular tournament players, especially at lower point levels. The red ones do go away when you reach Gold LM, but giving ...
Questions about bridge terms
Using the term "intruder" or "aggressor" implies that the auction should belong to the opener. With weak openings, often the hand will be opened with 11 pts and the overcaller (your intruder) will have a stronger hand than the opener. The contract may wind up with the overcaller/advancer who ...
