about me

Houston-area resident. Used to live down the street from James Kirk.

At one time was ranked #23 in the entire ACBL in "Pending Points".

I'm related to Louis Coulon DeVilliers, who was the only soldier to force George Washington to surrender. So there's a long tradition of winning in my family!

ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
As I write this, roughly noon on 7/12, there were close to a thousand people signed up to play. I'm still liking the 3250 number that Richard Willey proposed for the number of entrants. With 3250 participants at an average price of $42 (the answer, right?), that's ...
Best Line
Another (simpler) line: Three trumps and spade to the 9. If that loses, play K and diamond to J. You'll make if the double spade finesse wins or if the diamond finesse wins.
Bad Timing
The line would be ruff, A, ruff (king doesn't fall), A, then Q discarding spade if not covered? This might be an improvement.
Bad Timing
I would ruff trick 1 and immediately play AQ without playing any trumps. I expect West to cover. I ruff the K and play A. Hopefully all follow. Now I can play the J, discarding a spade, and all follow, ruff a diamond setting up the long diamond, and crossruff ...
Select the level of your Heart Contract.
I have to admit I would not play this as well. I would discard at trick 1, win the spade return, ruff the 7 immediately, AK, K, and trumps. So long as trumps are 3-2, I'll make on tripleton Q, or either a squeeze or club finesse. This is ...
