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.

What has partner got?
Or fond memories...
What has partner got?
Again, the point is to avoid making a call that creates a guess situation for your poor, miserable, tired, brain (almost) dead partner!
What has partner got?
Is anyone else having a problem with the whole concept of a super-accept over 2NT where it is defined as 20-21 (or 18-19 etc.)? What, do you have all the tens, nines, and eights in the deck?
What has partner got?
That would be the only instance where 4S would be possible. However, given the chances 4S would confuse the dickens out of poor pard, Just try 5H and pard will either pass or correct to 6H. After all, you have to play it. Cream in my coffee please, partner.
What has partner got?
That one gets a ROFLMAO in addition to the like.
What has partner got?
If you start with two assumptions, first that even with a magic 4-4 heart fit and a max there is no way opener's hand can re-eval to a slam try, and that opener has been asked (ordered?) by the captain of the auction to bid 4H (or 3NT without ...
