The cameras ARE packed! Leaving for the airport in less than an hour! Thank you for your kind words, David - and for all YOU do for bridge in our community!

Jeff - it is a labor of love. Truly.

And although I am not a professor, I love working with my students at Carleton. I had INCREDIBLY wonderful mentors when I first started learning. So my small way of “paying it forward” to a new generation.

I saw Mark Lair do it once in the USBF trials - against a world class pair.

It worked :)

Was very smooth and in tempo….

(Whoops; was not over 2. Nevertheless, I was impressed!)

I was torn between 2 and double. But just not quite enough wood for 2 and that suit is pathetic!

Joe - thank you for letting us know about Jeff's generous gift!

I hope Billy's family knows of it. What a wonderful way to honor Billy.

Alexander; think positive! Maybe not right now - but - perhaps down the road.

It CAN happen!

David - thanks so much! Hoping that many bridge players around the world - and WANNABE players, too, will watch the elite bridge and ENJOY!

I lead a club as the odds seem highest with this suit that the A, K, or J may be beneficial.

As for the long thought - seems like that could be a variety of issues: enough for game? slam? should a major be trotted out? NT?

Who knows?

One “like.”

One more than I would have expected ….

Actually, Richard, you make a good point. I have seen people psych OUR suit at favorable vul….

It's a tough game!

Your mentee has it right, Max. (As do you, too.)

I think if you look at the page that asks, “When should you open at the 4 level?” - THIS is the hand that you see!

I'm afraid that 4NT might be interpreted to play. And I hate to just jump to 6 when 7 might be cold.

If I cue bid, hoping we have a better chance of sorting through to the right spot.

“bridge lovers can always find a way to play bridge”

I love this comment, Ronnie! SO true!

Richard, I might add that in my view, never a fine idea to insult your customers. Telling players that they are “evading paying their fair share” to me does not lead to members getting a warm and fuzzy feeling about their bridge organization….

I must admit that I far prefer starting after Thanksgiving. One huge reason for me is airline travel. A nightmare going back home the weekend following Thanksgiving - and - so much more expensive, too.

Of course, I can understand Shawn's position and that of all the people who have kids or jobs where the holiday week is easier, yada yada yada.

Yet another example of you truly cannot please everyone. Period.

Paul - thank you. It is indeed an honor to be in the company of so many world class competitors - not to mention illustrious captains.

Icing on the cake is being able to promote our great game, visit a new land and hang out with TGBH, too!

Ed, my personal belief is that it could be done at a great many more colleges and universities.

But it takes much work, effort, caring, inspiration, trying this and that…

If more of us would be up to the challenge, then I truly believe we could have a renaissance of our game.

May those who feel the stirrings of a calling heed the call!
