about me

I was active in the Professional Bridge Tour during its brief but interesting life.  I play once or twice a month in my club and attend regional and national tournaments when able. I've authored several bridge books and articles including the beginner rubber bridge book Simplicity Bridge in 2009. I'm focused on finding ways to promote our game of contract bridge at the high school and college age levels using new tools and marketing methods. Somewhere along the line I managed to make Bronze Life Master, but not liking the echelons above LM concept I just claim LM. I will continue to play at bridge, hoping to someday come close to learning the game.

1D or 1NT? My marriage is on the line...!
(3rd seat at IMPs only)

CM, that's when pard would forget you have 60 on. (Can't tell you how often that has happened, and our rules forbade asking about the score after the hand had been dealt and viewd, so the later the hour...

Ed, seems like the CO's wife already wrote the XO's fitrep -- and the CO's.
1D or 1NT? My marriage is on the line...!
Gotta give that one a hundred-fifty honors! And I pity those who understand neither.
1D or 1NT? My marriage is on the line...!
Wow, not one person mentioned PASS as an option. It's IMPs, think rubber bridge. If the opponents pass it out you dodged a bullet, next hand. If game is on you won't find it opening 1D, and won't be allowed to play it unmolested if you open ...
Another idea to improve system compliance
I'd like to have witnessed that discussion!
Another idea to improve system compliance
Be nice, Ed. Lazy (contented?) isn't the same as stupid. Many club players have no interest in challenge. When we get the occasional precision pair from out of town I celebrate the opportunity to practice while most dislike it.
Another idea to improve system compliance
It's more than that. If you don't train club players in the proprieties you put them at a disadvantage when they do go to tourney competition. The'll feel out of place or embarrassed.
Another idea to improve system compliance
But 2H/S weak? Thought weak twos were a feature. No biggie, I play the old Acol (sort of).
Another idea to improve system compliance
Isn't Benji exactly what you described? Essentially SAYC but perhaps a bit lighter opening bids? I'm confused.
