about me

I'm a freelance capitalist, retired software engineer, Lindy Hopper, and sometime professional bridge player. I spend winters on the ski slopes and the rest of the year in NYC or traveling. My other interests include the laws of bridge, economics, 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

Software to quiz on a bidding system?
I have two copies, and other authors have produced similar tomes. They are useful. I'm looking for something online, though, that my partner and I can use to make sure we know our system once we've come to such agreements. Better to learn we're not sure of ...

R.I.P. Milt Rosenberg

Thanks, John! I enjoyed, as usual.

2018 Fall Honolulu NABC Appeals Casebook
Thanks for working on these, Keith! With most panelists under lockdown we should see more rapid progress - I've received two sets of panelist comments for Honolulu already. And while it's most unfortunate that two NABCs have been cancelled so far, it will help up get caught up.
