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.

Bob Heitzman's bidding problem: A8643 QT986 QJ 8
2 - assuming Michaels. Logical alternatives are 1S and double. Pass is not a LA. Double is the only LA that might have been suggested by the UA and I wouldn't double with this hand even without the UA.

Which ACBL regional Nov 4-10?
It was in Springfield, at the Marriott, for many years. It doesn't seem to be there anymore and it may well travel now. I think it's been at least 20 years since I attended (I remember attending one year when Princess Di was in her fatal accident and ...
