Bridge Accomplishments
My regular partners are my best friend and my first cousin and I have been playing with both of them for more than 30 years. No murder/suicide (to date). :) Of lesser note, 2nd in the 2018 Red Ribbon Pairs, tied 3/4 in 2019 0-2500 Spingold, two other top 5 finishes. Hope to win one someday..

RIP Ken Cohen
Playing against Ken, you really couldn't be on auto-pilot. When your partner doubled one of his weak 2 bids, you really had to think about converting it to a penalty double that you wouldn't consider versus almost anyone else, because if you bid, you would often end up ...

Why are you playing bridge?
Yeah, that about sums it up. Sometimes I think that the better I get (and yet still make stoopid mistakes), the less I enjoy the game!

And a good thing too that your tribe and island goosed us onto a different path, or we might all be drinking schnapps with our wiener schnitzel tonight.
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
It smells like....victory. Until you get home and they tell you you finished 2nd.
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
I'd give slightly more credit to Warren Zevon than Phil, but okay. :) But lawyers? My thoughts on that:
Ace Remembered
I played against Bobby once. The first hand went Pass-Pass-Pass-Pass, and my partner and I got a 6 1/2 on a 12 top. Given that we had the extra time, before playing the second hand, I told Bobby he was the first World Champion I had ever played against ...
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
I always hesitate to comment on situations like this until I have heard the other side, but if the facts are as reported - that one team beat both of the other 2 teams in a 3 way, but the winner was determined based on how the match between the 2 ...
