about me

Serious bridge player. Used to play only a couple of NABCs and local regionals each year but now playing more local sectionals and club games. Having about 2500 master points about a quarter of which are platinum points. 

\n

The most enjoyable tournament so far is the World Championship Series held in Sanya, China in 2014. The favorite bridge memory is 1998 Fall NABC Reisinger BAM. Playing with Peter Sun, Qinqin Wang, and Jiang Chen as our first try of the event, we ended up with 11th in the semi-final, less than 0.5 from making to the cut of the final 10. Still, this was my first time to play behind screens and against many world class players.

The craziest tournament I played so far was the Irvine Regional 2014. While still working on all weekdays, I managed to play all 7 days, with 7 different partners.

GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
I was expecting or hoping for a ruling from the district like this: Declare team Gupta as the winner as all the other alternatives seem not practical: sending two teams to Vegas, or having a playoff on site or online, or finding enough grounds to declare finn’s team as ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
I also played that year. I clearly remembered there were six teams divided two groups. The reason I remember it clearly is I was stupid enough to assume two teams, instead of only one team instead, would advance to day 2. My team was in the same group of Phil ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Some don’t want to spend the money and/time to play for the 3rd place. And some don’t want to be the the 4th, leaving for home empty handed. I just realized this 12 days ago
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
I fully agree that the CoC were "at best unclear", otherwise they didn't have to update them on 5/31. In addition, the DIC would not use the wrong VP scale to start with and declared Finn's team as the winner (the original VPs were 26:25:9 ...
What does this 4!S call mean?
First of all, partner has ST. Second, this is probably the only type of hands to better the contract: a better suit plus the K to protect.
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
oh that’s mixed teams. The open team also had two days RR but there was no half time after day1.
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
Debbie, check with Michael. He’s playing his third team trial this year: one second place, one first place, and one more second place or better finish will put him into a very troublesome position, which we all can be very envious
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
Ellis, Finn’s interpretation is perfect. If you read the updated CoC carefully, the “see 3-team format” will produce two teams after the second day. You will have to have another day or a long Day 2 to finish the final final. I agree that it’s not the intent ...
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
USBF did post the VPs after day 1 (a 2-day RR event) for the open USA2 too. Then they updated the VPs on Day 2.
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
Besides, with most VP scale tables, a team with net positive IMPs in a 3-way match will be winner. Only with this 26-32 board 20VP scale a team with net negative IMP becomes a winner, which is indeed very rare.
