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

Religious Restrictions and our Conditions of Contest
Religion is a choice. If a player’s religious obligations conflict with our reasonable procedures then he will have to choose one or the other. He may be able to obtain an exemption (there’s a better word for this that escapes me) from his clergyman or religious order, but ...
Open Las Vegas Discussion Thread
Thanks for the links, Ray! I had responded to the August 2017 poll and then forgot about it - I never circled back to check the results. Does anyone know definitively who chooses starting times for events at each NABC? Is it the local District, the ACBL BoD, ACBL management, or ...
Open Las Vegas Discussion Thread
Probably. I wonder whether one could be serve as a proper sample for the other. Polling on BW is easier, but polling at an NABC would surely be more representative.
Open Las Vegas Discussion Thread
You have my support on this issue, Chris! Another player asked me about this in Vegas as well. She mentioned that the last survey taken on the matter was over a decade ago and that opinions may well have shifted during that span - the league's demographic certainly has. Should ...
Thanks, Fred Gitelman
I think you'll enjoy St. Moritz, Fred. It's is a fun tournament, especially if you like to ski. It's been attracting some strong entrants lately. I play most years - I'll be happy to answer questions anyone has about it as best I can. http://bridge-stmoritz.ch/
Open Las Vegas Discussion Thread
Useful, Nick! Thanks for posting. How did you create it? I'd write up more sessions if I had a good way to create such templates.

I had an excellent Indian meal at Mint on Flamingo. It's almost next to Lotus of Siam, also worth a visit if you can get a reservation. I'm told there's at least one more great Thai place in town, but I don't know its name. https ...
Thanks, Fred Gitelman
BBO has changed my life for the better. I know thousands could say the same. Making a success of it required not only programming chops but also great business acumen by Fred and his partners. That he is such a nice and thoughtful guy only makes it better. Thanks, Fred!
Discuss a Tardiness Penalty
Yes, specific tardiness penalties are certainly called for. We may as well crib from the Women's CoC.
Systems filing Deadline when a Player or Pair is added within 2 weeks of the start of the event
I would define "unusual method" as one that is not allowed for an Open Chart event. If they're added less than six days before the start we could give them half the remaining time to file their CC & SSF.
