Currently living outside of Augusta, GA, but have lived in Singapore, Taiwan, Maryland and Washington state. Is it any wonder I play mostly on BBO?

SF Online Robot NABC Event - Day 3
I too appreciate the reports. The brief thoughts about how a bad stretch happens mirror ideas I have considered (and have not yet figured out how to avoid, either).
ACBL Fall National Viewgraph?
Having done this, I concur. The perspective you obtain from handling a VuGraph session is valuable, and certainly helps you appreciate those that provide such a service even more. You're in a room with some of the best players in the world, which, in and of itself, is a ...
BB QF USA1 vs. BULGARIA Session 2
The Bulgarian auction on board 27 was like the description of Meckwell's auction on 26. The Vugraph operator said every bid was alerted, but he or she had no idea what anything meant...

In the Well: Eric Rodwell
Hi Eric, You mentioned above the need to get "significant help" from the opponents to win pair games. Do you have any advice for less than expert, shall we say, players on anything they can do at the table to get that help?
NICKELL Narrowly Wins 62-Board Semi Final
The same boards were played in both semifinal matches, so board 64 would have been the same one as the one from the Monaco-Cayne match, available through the BridgeBase Vugraph archive. At one table in that match, Helgemo played 4S+1, while at the other Duboin played 5Hx making, after ...
In the Well: Bob Hamman
How frequently, if at all, do you think about your many bridge successes? How do those compare to your memories of your family, or your business?
