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..

A Psych Story
There is no one on this site, and I mean NO ONE, who if we singled out their worst bid or play, wouldn't look ridiculous. As we all know, this game is extremely humbling. I therefore think people should perhaps take this into account before writing unkind things like ...
A Decision I have never had to face before
Right? You're not going to be very happy if you double, and when it rides around back to him he bids 3C or 3H because he misclicked and accidentally passed, and now you let him escape from 2S! Who knows what's going on? Maybe the cat jumped on ...
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
I agree Amir got way too bent out of shape from what clearly seems to have been a misunderstanding with one ACBL employee, and yet blamed the entire ACBL. Probably the frustration of his waiting 3 years to find out that what he thought he was told was the case ...
Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
Right? When I make a bonehead mistake of this magnitude, I want to quietly slink away from the table, mumble 7S down 1 to my teammates, and have as few people find out what really happened as possible. The LAST thing I would do is appeal so that it ends ...
My Online NABC - Introduction and Day 1
Board 5 should say LHO turns up with 9 MAJOR cards...
Online NABC - Congrats to Phil Clayton
Congratulations, Phil. You don't win this baby without some serious declaring chops. To Leo's point, it's really a shame that (due to obvious security issues) everybody can't play the same hands and have them matchpointed across the field! It's very far from being apples to ...
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 is it so hard to find a new partner?
I would add one more thing to your list, Deborah. Make sure you get your partner's name right. :) Steve???
RIP Harold Feldheim
Harold made the game fun. I rarely got the best of him, but I always had a good time at his table. To me, that is why we play the game. I will very much miss his sense of mischief, and as Chip said, the twinkle in his eye. Save ...
Meckwell leaving NICKELL
I'm sure it was just an oversight, but in number 3 you left out Lawyers and Guns. :)
