about me

I am a C.P.A. and enjoy bridge for the logic of it.  Started in college (UNC) but, luckily not until my last year.  Ran local games for over 30 years with my wife.  Mentoring newer players is a great joy, to see them get more comfortable with this great game.

ACBL District 11 Director Report from BOD Member
I agree that this is a wonderful report. I know here (District 7) that Bob Heller issues one from time to time, but this one is much better.
Best way to handle this situation?
if we have to alert every call partner makes that is undiscussed but could be conventional auctions would take forever. If asked, I would say we have not discussed this sequence, but if you like, I will tell you how I am interpreting it.
Calling All Legal Beagles
Question one is once. More than that would tell partner declarer has more than expected. Question two I think is that someone with a physical problem should be able to correct mistakes without calling the director.
Couldn't Walk the Dog.. They Closed the door
+100 certainly does not seem better than the +110 you are guaranteed at 2, even if partner contributes nothing. You gambled and lost.
Rohit Gupta's bidding problem: A A AK8765 AQ876
I agree. 4NT could be easily taken as Blackwood, while 5NT has to be minors.
Alan Schwartz's bidding problem: AK763 Q3 Q J8732
Even though I am light, why tell partner AGAIN about spades?
You Know You Are A Bridge Player When....
Bill and Joel are both right. I have been to both many times and noticed the road markers.
Bridge Stories and Jokes
I remember playing against a couple and the husband bid 4NT and the wife responded 5NT. Later the husband asked what 5NT was and the wife said "I have all of the aces and none of the kings, so don't ask".
David Boxley's bidding problem: AQJ5 KT2 T9876 9
I went with 3NT, but might have bid 1 the first time since hand is obviously worth 2 bids. We can find spades later if need be. That might have solved things now.
You Know You Are A Bridge Player When....
When you go down, and sex is not involved.
