about me

I'm a freelance capitalist, semi-retired software engineer, and sometime professional bridge player. I spend summers in Florida and winters on the Colorado ski slopes. My other interests include the laws of bridge, economics, swing dancing, global warming (I'm a skeptic), and Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism. Edgar Kaplan is my all time bridge hero.

Country
United States of America

Stansby is 2018 Sportsman of the Year
I enjoyed and recommend that book "Gamesmanship", a humorous take on the topic: http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/books/reviews/the-theory-and-practice-of-gamesmanship-by-stephen-potter-8861434.html Also, congratulations to Lew! Well deserved.
ACBL Team cost vent - if it's as stupid as it looks. I'm hoping I was wrong.
Nice point, Bernie, though the event is actually named after Ethel's husband Bill. He passed away before I ever learned the game, but I often played against Ethel, and with her a few times as well.
Assign The Ignorance
My practice is to always call the TD. Whatever the rule, both sides would do well to learn what it is. There's nothing to be gained from asserting that my view is right - we already know that my opponent disagrees. This is precisely what we have TDs for, and ...

Thanks for the dining tips, Rebecca! I posted about Tajima Ramen before I saw that's you'd already recommended it. I've been back a few times. Tonight I tried Beshock Ramen. It was excellent as well, though I have to give the nod to Tajima.

I thought it was a poor decision to place the blues and the mini-blues in the same room. The events had two different clocks, making it difficult to know how much time was left in the round.

Had dinner at Tajima Ramen, 901 E St. in the Gaslamp district. The food was out of the world. I'm not usually a ramen fan but this place is worth a visit. I preferred it to the highly touted Jeju in NYC.

I like the registration gift shirts. I have a large white one and would love to trade for a small or medium, any color. Ping me here or I'm registered at the Hyatt. I'd be happy to throw in a copy of "Atlas Shrugged" as an inducement!

Hugh Ross 1937-2017
Hugh was a real gentleman and a good friend and occasional teammate. I wish I knew more people like him. I was delighted when I learned that he and Min lived a mile or so from my parents' place in Oakland and I tried to look them up every few ...
600k boards from Vugraph: lies, damned lies, and statistics
This is great, Emily. Thanks! Have you seen Richard Pavlicek's analyses? http://rpbridge.net/rpme.htm I find them useful and fascinating. He's stopped updating his, so the field is wide open.
