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..

Board 14 2nd July 2019 Bermuda Bowl Sweden vs Netherlands
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.

Keep Bridge Alive
Because it's very hard for me to imagine any other social activity I could engage in that would make it possible for me to have gourmet dinners with people such as yourself, Roy and Zia! :)
Looking for teammates for 0-10,000 Swiss at Memphis NABC
Just FYI, the position has been filled. Thanks to all for your consideration! :)
Declare 7NT on the Nine of Diamonds lead
<> Well, a certain number of quality defenders would lead away from the club king, with a 75% chance that the club ace is on their left and knowing how much declarers hate to go down on the opening trick. No one is ever leading away from the spade queen. So ...
Taking action - please join me each morning and evening in Memphis
You and I both love bridge, Max. We shouldn't hurt the organization that does a lot of things right and provides us the opportunity to play this game against like minded people. Hurting the ACBL, which already has one foot in the grave and the other precariously close to ...
