about me

I have finally taken the plunge and opened my own real estate brokerage firm, DML Realty. If you are looking to buy, sell or rent in Manhattan, contact me :)  Unfortunately not much time left for playing, but it makes the times I have to play even more valuable.

Question for Accountants (of benefit to Pros)

Thank you, fixed the title.
An exhortation. - Just open the %$^&^% bidding!!!
To play very light opening bids requires the player to be comfortable playing difficult contracts. By difficult I mean often seven card suits and sometimes six card suits as trumps, and finding ways to score them all - you know that famous 'trump elopment' chapter in THE book. This 'art' which ...

What to do holding (5-4) in the majors after 1!C - (1!D)
Fixed, thank you.

Ray, Is this in a strong environment?
Bad bidding practices that you nevertheless see many long-time players engage in
Richard, Regarding your bullet #1. "They will hesitate to support partner's ♣ suit without at least 5, sometimes more." Please provide a hand where responder should support right away after a 1 opening holding only four cards in the suit? Regarding your bullet #4. "They always open 1 ...
