about me

I like bridge!  It is challenging, and humbling, and generally fun.  I am a student of the game and am always interested in learning more.  I root for the underdog and follow the best.  The game has taught me things that I didn't learn in kindergarten...i.e., play fair, don't hit people (literally or figuratively), say you are sorry when you hurt people... Bridge has taken me places that I never thought I'd go....and I am enjoying every step of the journey.

And...I'd rather be lucky AND good!

The Best Bridge Writer
Watson, Play of the hand at bridge. It's a classic (and perhaps outdated), but like most, I often reflect most smilingly on a first love (bridge book) The book is a moderately easy read, it covers offense and defense; almost anyone can follow along and learn. What I really ...
Mastery of the Fundamentals
I agree! Indeed, buy the CD (and additional deals)....less expensive in the long run...and great for pushing past plateaus. [Side note....PLEASE make the CD compatible with the MAC!!! I dont particularly like having to go to my PC to practice] The downside, unfortunately for me, after repeated ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
@Steve, why don’t we have a mechanism for pruning “unproductive” regionals? I fully understand the “not in my backyard” crowd. At the same time, it seems, to me, that “everybody” acknowledges that there are too many tournaments...and EVERYBODY refuses to do anything about it. Leadership is about leading ...
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
When does the platinum at the regionals start? The pie is only so big. Is the idea here to increase the size of the pie or to alter the way it is divided? If it is the former, what metrics are in place to determine whether it succeeds?

The walrus opens 1N. Then what?
Rules are made to be broken ;) But few would respond to an invitation without the proper tickets.
Tiers of National Championship Events at NABCs
After reviewing the schedule for the NABC for the last few years I don't agree that the existence of mixed events decreases the size of 'otherwise equivalent' non-mixed events. First, it seems that most mixed events are categorized as NABC+ events (is there a reason, some history for this ...
Chuck Messinger's bidding problem: --- Q52 AKJT963 KJ6
Are support doubles really that far off the charts now?
A New Blue Ribbon Pair
Ok, I am willing to show my naivete here: why did no W sit for 1X with singleton A? Especially when 1 opening promised 4+? So we only have 6 trump....aren't my as good on defense as offense? BTW, loved this summary...wish ...
