about me

I am the ACBL National Recorder. I was on the NAC (appeals committee) from 1984 until its demise. I joined the ACBL Laws Commission in 2006. I was added to the ACBL Ethical Oversight in 2010. I am particularly proud (and mystified) about being appointed to the ACBL Goodwill committee. My hobbies include my dogs, singing, wine, and watching baseball and basketball. Former member District 17 Board and former 1st Alternate Director D17.

Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: J43 AKQ92 KJ9 AT
I would have overcalled. Just sayin...
The Times They Are A'Changin'
There was a system they used to use in the NYC Reisinger KO teams called "New England Seeding". All the team captains got rosters of the field and ranked the teams.
So What Do You Do With a Good Hand?
The version of good/bad 2NT I play allows me to double to show the good heart raise with 3, I can bid 2NT followed by 3H with a good 4 card raise, and 3H direct as "competitive".
Thank You Lew Stansby

questions for club owners
I haven't been a club owner in many years. But in Unit 355 (my Unit in Northern Arizona) our funds are redistributed in the form of providing new playing cards (and other equipment occasionally) to clubs in the Unit. Club managers are quite happy with this.

I thought it was VERY close.

I think the real "Hyatt" owner name is Pritzker. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pritzker_family

Finally someone who agrees with me about Wrigley! I grew up with Tiger Stadium which had plenty of interesting features, particularly a right field upper deck that jutted out over the outfield a bit. Comiskey Park had similar construction but different features. Old Yankee Stadium was special for the history ...

The mistake on the lake - that was truly pathetic. Never went to the Kingdome but I have been to Safeco. It is a nice venue. Incidentally Chase Field in Phoenix is pretty nice.

Ralph - Mazel Tov! You have been one of my bridge heroes since we met when I was about 20 living in Michigan and you were 19 and living in Steubenville. You have always played with flair and acted with class.
