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.

You might want to write that one up for the ABTA Quarterly.

If you can get them to learn half of that they won't tolerate 0-750 fields for long!
Just so you know, I've proposed internships for college credit and possibly pay or at least expenses, and a former CEO was interested, but his term ended suddenly. I still like the idea and think it should be pursued. See College Bridge Series 4th Semester (free for ...
Bridge on Twitch
Please mix it up. Don't just watch and chat about the big guns. Show some (attractive, please) young people (up to age 30) having a blast in a rubber bridge home game, perhaps complete with adult beverages if all of age to imbibe. Do it from cool places, like ...
Student Scam Emailed from ACBL
I think that went out to all the ACBL registered teachers, but it doesn't hurt to mention it here. Probably should post to BBO message area too, if any of you that have control of that are tuned in.
Revoke vs. Renege
Every time I've used renege I get corrected, so I've learned to use revoke. Never cared enough to look in the Laws. Still don't.
Advice on minimum for a two suiter overcall
Hey, that's cool Craig! You should publish it in a Bulletin article if you have not yet done so...or Bridge World if you so prefer. Call it the Expanded Baker's Rule (after Baker's dozen). I like the fact that you don't count wasted values outside ...
