about me

Can you identify my Avatar?  I'm the best bridge player in Chicago for about three hands a month.  The rest of the time, I just swim along with the other fish.

Let the cards speak, not the time it takes to play them!
Nah, its a big kettle drum found in most orchestras.
Michael Shuster's lead problem: QJ762 T853 K3 A7
