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 to adopt EBU results file format
Inb4 Nic says "Score+ already supports this file format". :) This is a step forward, the ACBLScore format is quite cryptic.

Make Diamond LM, FWIW.
Teams per bracket in Round Robin?
I think 6 teams per bracket is a mistake, you would only play five matches and have two overall places. Our unit's players love the bracketed RR. We mandate 7 to 9 teams per bracket. It usually ends up being 7 teams so we can play 6 matches of ...
Daniel Jackson's bidding problem: A82 K752 AKQ975 ---
No, 7NT is 90% to make (just needs no 4-0 diamonds). No one bid a grand of any kind. Actually, I looked at the hand record and the hand with the diamonds has the 9, so 7NT is actually 95% to make.
Daniel Jackson's bidding problem: A82 K752 AKQ975 ---
At the table I tried 5NT. My student knew I was asking for something, but didn't know what, so he bid 6. 4NT here works at the table, as partner has AQJ sixth, xxx, and the A, so 7NT is 90%. Seems to me like if partner knew ...
