about me

Bridge player/teacher/writer and Bridge Winners admin. When not playing bridge I'm writing plays. Or more accurately procrastinating, telling myself I should be working on a play. I live in New York City and am on the board of GNYBA (Unit 155) and serve as New York's Youth Bridge Coordinator.

First Choice - Second Choice - and....
Why didn't I overcall 1?
1m - P - 1!S - 2!H - 2NT?
When opener bids 2NT voluntarily (as here) it shows 18-19; when he's forced to bid (eg, 1m (2H) X (P); 2NT) it's a minimum.

You are now the King/Queen of the ACBL, what next?
I'd start by cutting the number of regional tournaments by about 50%.
