about me

I describe myself as a "Really good Bridge player for someone who really doesn't play the game." I was life Master 10718 in 1969 but took multiple years completely off and multiple years where I played very little. Yes, life got in the way but playing a full regional much less a full national is not something I enjoy.

I really only care about playing teams against the best so you will see me at the USBF Trials, the Spingold or the Vanderbilt but not much at a match point event.

My vocation was engineer and business owner and my advocation is that I am Pastor at two Convalescent Homes in the Los Angeles area which is why I don't play on weekends except in the afore mentioned events.

I started playing Neapolitan Club in the early 60's which morphed into what is now called Precision. Today I play a super-light opening forcing diamond system.

And I only filled out my profile because you-know-who shamed me into it.

The law won
In the 60s Big Lew would open 1H on 4, get raised on 3 and saw your arse off in 2S with his 4 spades.
Is this call alertable?
I think there about 5 pairs that play the system. The two systems most evolved are ours and Sam Dinkin's. However, what Sam and Mike play has a much different philosophy and the system structure reflects that. Our system, Mavarako, uses a relatively standard 14-15HCP 1NT while their system ...
Is this call alertable?
In the variation that Lance Kerr and I play, the theoretical advantage is simply we open most 8-11HCP hands with a descriptive call, the logic being that the descriptive call provides responder with information that a pass does not. This allows preemptive opportunities and constructive opportunities not available in other ...
TBF (Turkish Bridge Federation) is making their first online national team tournament!
We successfully ran an experiment videoing me playing in a match. The camera was over my left shoulder and viewed the screen. It had pan and tilt capabilities and the remote viewers could manipulate the camera and view the room. It also had sound capabilities but they weren't turned ...

Depends on your goals. I liked those boards to give my inexperienced pairs practice.

Eric- That's what the software does. We are working on another process that is webpage based but it won't be ready for May, if then. If not I may very well do as you suggested. We did run a shuffle and, as you can see, I need to ...

Is this call alertable?
As I have said they get an explanation on-line or behind screens whether they ask or not. You areguing that your pass is standard so it should not be alertable. My argument is there is no such thing as standard after 1D (15+)-p-1S(0-5)-X.
