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.

Petition for NABC+ Midnight KO
Perfect. I’m ALWAYS knocked out by midnight. No medication necessary.
T- Shirt ideas(bridge)

Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Txxxx --- 9xxxx xxx
Seriously?
Is this a way to run an organization?
The culture of bridge has changed since I started and we had to walk to tournaments in the snow, with bare feet, and uphill in both directions. Seriously, when I was starting out, the thing that made me keep coming back is that I got to play against the stars ...
Danny Sprung's bidding problem: --- AKQT93 Q4 AT975
First of all, a free 1NT bid in this auction is not 6-9. If counting points more like 8-bad 11. Why are people rushing to make a bid here? We are in a force. Pass. Partner will know spades are controlled and we are interested in going further.
Can You Outplay Zia?
Thanks Kit and Michael for one of the most interesting, educational, and downright fun threads/articles I have read in a long while!
RIP George Rosenkranz
George always showed dignity and class at the table. He was a spectacular personality and an asset to bridge.
JoAnn Sprung's bidding problem: AKJx Qxx T QJT97
This "feels" like a 3 bid, but having so much in spades, it is possible that some of it is wasted. The rest of the hand is quacky.
Restricted Choice - or not?
Years ago there was a Bridge World article about something similar. I’m guessing by Frank Vine. Declarer was missing QJxx. Declarr led toward t che AKT the queen dropped on his right. Before he had a chance to take a restricted choice finesse there was an alert and explanation ...
