about me

I became totally smitten with bridge in 2016. Since then, I've created new web-based scoring software ( and started a bridge club (

Bridge club furnishings
I bought some very sturdy plastic ones from Bed Bath and Beyond using their 20% coupon, so < $50 each: . I use table covers, so plastic doesn't bother me. They also sell the wood Stakmore tables, where you can also ...
Live 4 Clubs and USEBIO files
Eventually (well, was supposed to be a year ago, but keeps getting put off) ACBL will allow clubs to use alternative scoring software, rather than ACBLScore. Those programs (like mine, RSVPBridge), will create USEBIO files, not an ACBLScore gamefile. When you do the upload in Live4Clubs, you might notice it ...
List things that the average “beginner/novice” just doesn’t understand
I’ll tell this one on myself. When I was first reading about conventions, there would often be a reference to it working differently “in competition” I just couldn’t figure out why the convention would be played differently if you were at a tournament (aka competition) rather than a ...
Dealing machine issues?
Updating an old thread ... I was running my BridgeSorter on a pokey little laptop I had purchased for about $130. (I'm a Mac person and ACBLScore and dealing machine needed Windows). Just upgraded to a faster laptop ($399!) and all the problems with the dealing machine went away! Would ...

from Jeff: " Does it require that a certain percentage of BOD members be club sanction holders?" I do believe that would be very helpful.
Thanks, Fred Gitelman
Thank you, Fred. You've made the world a better place.
What killed American Bridge--a Poll from the Year 2040.
My 'other' is rude or grouchy players who are intolerant of newbies. We need to celebrate those who come give our game a try, not make them feel like inept fools.
Dealing machine issues?
Interesting that spades and diamonds are issues for both of the machines, but in different ranks. For mine it is only the QD and QS. Fortunately, the machine stops and says it cannot recognize the card, rather than dealing it incorrectly. I prefer the quality of the ACBL cards, but ...
A provisional Membership
I suspect it would be difficult to maintain the Bridge Bulletin in its current form, which is fairly high quality, if you offered an alternative online-only subscription. Advertisers (of which there are many!) need a certain circulation level to justify the cost of the ads. On a related note, I ...
