about me

I am on 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.

Do you play forcing pass in this auction?
I hate forcing passes. Nevertheless, in these auctions I play pass is forcing through the contract that we were forced to on our own. In this case that contract is 3H. Therefore pass of any bid by opps from 3S to 7NT isn't forcing.
Meyer Kotkin's bidding problem: T95 K75 8542 K73
"Forcing pass" is a partnership agreement, and I play very few of them. One can make a case either way here, but I would assume not if not explicitly agreed. Suppose the 3 Heart bidder has Kx x AKQJxxx Axx. 3 Hearts is slightly speculative but I am sure many ...
Rohit Gupta's lead problem: 5 J8 QJ942 98432
I hate my 5C bid. Lame.
Meyer Kotkin's bidding problem: T95 K75 8542 K73
4nt. Partner asked for a stopper. I have a stopper and an extra value. WTP?
Peter Boyd's bidding problem: 4 T93 75 T976542
5C - didn't consider pass but actually toyed with the 6C card.
Reasons to attend the Eastern States Regional (NYC)
You are quite correct David. My senior memory hardly shocks me anymore.
Reasons to attend the Eastern States Regional (NYC)
As a former New Yorker, I can recommend the Eastern States. The Goldman Pairs is the oldest continuous 4+ session championship going back to about 1927. The winners (other than me) are like a Who's Who of bridge history.
In The Well: Chip Martel
I have enjoyed serving on the Laws Commission with you since 2006, and to my recollection since I began you have always chaired. I want to publicly express my admiration for the work you do there. We encounter some complex situations and usually about half the LC members are lawyers ...
Player Memos
I have asked the TD's (through their field supervisors) to forward Zero Tolerance penalties (Behavior Violations) to my office. It is easy to do - just snap a picture of the form with a smartphone. How well they comply is beyond my control, but the short answer is yes, we ...
Player Memos
This is why it is our responsibility to reach out to the accused party to counsel and/or investigate. If the reporter demands confidentiality and investigation would destroy that confidentiality we have to honor it, but we can also take no action on the Player Memo other than to record ...
