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.

Favorite Bridge Memory
Opponent cue bid a conrol he didn't have enroute to a small slam, luring me into a bad lead and making. I congratulated him, and learned from it.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
A new type of regionals
If you are going to do that, then get rid of NLM regionals and Gold Rush events. I'm betting that would cause an uproar. I'm more in Jan M's camp. I'd also like to see one annual special Bridge Vacation (a la the one described occurring ...
A new type of regionals
...and enjoy the venue! By the way, I changed laterally to vertically. I really need to proofread better.

p.s. HBD Steve!
Meaning of 2NT rebid and high reverse opposite a 2-level negative double?
Yep, that is a danger. Easier to avoid if we only open 4cm with KQTx or better or a "Boris" (of Boris and Terence) hand 1-4-4-4 or 4-4-4-1. 5 card majorities would most likely open both of these 1D. I would open the first 1H and the 2nd 1S even ...
A new type of regionals
There is a cost differential, and that is the bang for buck for the players. It costs me pretty much the same to go to our local (2 hour drive each way) sectional and our regionals in the same place. Having all my silvers (and not needing any red/golds ...
A new type of regionals
One of the bright spots in bridge for me was playing in the Reno Open Swiss (and Winning!) with you and Ken and your pard. (Sorry, didn't really know him, but he sure played well!) I'm a just over 500 points LM, unlikely to ever get to 1 ...
A new type of regionals
Those of us who don't have a team willing to travel to an event prefer pairs.
A new type of regionals
"Not Invented Here" so I fear you are right.
A new type of regionals
Any chance we can have regionals or NABCs where we can play in the championship events ONE session (afternoon, preferably) per day? I'm past my 2 a days prime.
Meaning of 2NT rebid and high reverse opposite a 2-level negative double?
If 4 card majors then 2H in this auction could land one in a 4-2 fit. Out of curiosity do you allow 1M, P, 2 raise with only 3 pieces in opener's possible four card major? If flat 4-3-3-3 with 3 in pard's major and the 4 not ...
