about me

Hello Ruby Tuesday...


I'm from the States but have lived in various countries overseas for half of the last 16 years.

I've had the honor of representing the US (as a junior), Bermuda and Costa Rica in international tournaments

When in the States, I live in the DC area and play the WBL Unit game

Mark it's the first time I've seen a unanimous poll :)
Measuring Deductive Reasoning
Graduate Record Examinations - It's like a post college SAT in that it has a verbal section, a quantitative section - but also a logical section as mentioned above. There are also subject specific tests.
Measuring Deductive Reasoning
" Each card has a letter on one side and a number on the other."
How Not To Fill Out a Convention Card Part 1
I bid pass because it's the call I would have made without the UI Pd knows you have a long club suit and no outside A or K. They get to make the decision on whether to sack.
Your call
Yeah - but you should always assume your pd explained your bid correctly.
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: 84 KQ AKQJ92 KJ6
I’d be surprised that if we show the 16+ that 8+ isn’t FG
Martin Lindfors's bidding problem: 84 KQ AKQJ92 KJ6
Steve, if pd is 8+ w/o spade stop, 5D rates to be pretty good
Defensive Discarding Problem
It's always helpful to give your signalling methods when discussing defensive problems.
Dan Zagorin's bidding problem: QJ Kxx AQx QJTxx
Because I have spade shortness, a 3-card heart suit and an opening hand. This is more or less what I show when I make a takeout double
