Tax attorney in Atlantic City, NJ.  Playing bridge since 1972.  Inherited much of my sense of bridge humor from Dave Treadwell, so beware.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Fourth suit after XYZ
In the XYZ auction, I would bid 3 with the "punt" rather than 2. No need to go out of your way to misdescribe the hand in a game forcing auction.

Philly and the surrounding areas are not normally bothered too much by snow. However, if you ever drove the very narrow streets of South Philadelphia you would know how a few inches of snow could paralyze that portion of the city. On a typical South Philadelphia street there is enough ...
What is the meaning of this double?
Once in a district GNT swiss qualifying match my very aggressive opponents bid 2 - 3 by me - 4 and my partner looking at the AKQJ of hearts (I kid you not) and some other cards bid 6 which duly went down 1. When he tabled the ...

Only about 3-5 inches expected today and tonight. The big snow will be tomorrow. But, in any event, welcome to spring in Philadelphia!
I don‘t understand Drury
2NT by a passed hand as natural and invitational is one of the worst (if not the worst) bids in bridge.
Open Philadelphia Discussion Thread
I have a question about the presentation of the results of the Jacoby Swiss. My team failed to qualify for the finals (we fell one VP short). I wanted to review the results from the last 3 qualifying matches on Saturday. The results for Saturday's matches go through the ...
