about me

Professional anti-money laundering investigator, amateur bridge nut living in the Portland, OR metropolitan area.  I don't play as much as I would like to, and that probably isn't going to change soon.  I am married to a wonderfully supportive non-bridge player, and now have a little boy, Teddy, who was born April 23, but I hope to remain active in playing bridge while I balance my new family life.

Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Making the round of 16 in the 2013 Spingolds with Chris Wiegand, Sam Punch, and Stephen Peterkin - the first time I had entered the event. Now up there: Getting my top 4 matchpoint finishes with 3 different partners at nationals in 2016 at Reno, including placing in the Platinum pairs.
Bridge Accomplishments
7 top 10 national finishes, all in the past 6 years.
Regular Bridge Partners
Chris Wiegand and Jeff Ford
Favorite Tournaments
any NABC, all GNT competitions, Portland and Seaside regionals
Favorite Conventions
Stayman and follow-ups derived from it. I played 15 years of home bridge with my parents without knowing stayman, so I really appreciate how wonderful it is.

I'm slightly annoyed that the BW bracket lists me as Christopher S on the Wilderman team instead of Chris Gibson. I'll live, though.

The next question is what to do after partner bids 3N.
Play Tempo Ruling
Check for recorder forms. If there aren't any for similar activity, no score adjustment, and fill out a recorder.
The Worst Agreements in Bridge
They were aware, and explicitly explained that, but when we called the director because they used XX for rescue, she indicated that they were allowed to use conventions. Honestly, I didn't want to push it because I definitely felt it was to my advantage for them to play their ...
The Worst Agreements in Bridge
I have a new entry - a pair I played in the Vancouver regional last week played an opening 2N as 6-9 balanced, all seats, all vulnerabilities.
Fielding Partner's Forgetfulness
Partner's history is AI. As long as you don't have any UI that suggests partner forgot, you aren't constrained. On the other hand, if you are aware that it is a possibility that partner forgot based on partnership history, and it is so to the forefront of ...
What is the standard meaning?
Are you playing a strong or weak NT? Support is probably the most popular, but when I play a weak NT I play that double as extra values, no clear direction (usually a strong NT hand)
