about me

I love our game. I'm more interested in improving than in playing, so I study daily. I became a life master back when that was a high achievement (before strats, before MP inflation). I much prefer playing "up" to "playing down," which to me is a totally different game and not much fun. I'd sure like to find an equal and somewhat steady partner here in south Texas, but prospects aren't that favorable. That causes me pain and sends me to the robots for practice. I most enjoy the more difficult and more subtle parts of our game.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Plan for a Grand
Plus, bidding a grand slam on this hand, and at IMPs, isn't anything to be proud of, IMHO, since it displays a considerably lucky outcome; nothing more.
Construct a hand
I wouldn't consider this on a 17-18 HCP hand. It's stronger.
Keep Bridge Alive
Not only that, but they also devour every word!
The matter of taste - open to your proposals
As I said, if trumps are 2-2, anybody can take 7 hearts, two clubs, and a spade (after that suit is led and returned). It's a simple game. If hearts don't break and you've already used dummy's trump entry to ruff a third spade, you're ...
The matter of taste - open to your proposals
If west started with five spades and hearts are 2-2 with split honors, we can go down with either Steve's or Bill's line and nice uppercut defense on return of a fourth spade. I think the key is that West had no real chance to bid spades on ...
I Don't Understand This
On a lighter note, partners of mine have reportedly claimed, and on multiple occasions that I have actually died at the bridge table I was sitting at and Peg, this is something that to this very day, I can honestly say I really do not understand.
Keep Bridge Alive
Because it's the greatest card game ever invented.
Honolulu: THE 7NT Blue Ribbon Contract
Ray, how about this question: Which came first, the small diamond lead, or the small hesitation after 7 NT?
My first month away from the game
Thank you. I'm currently a member of two organizations that I don't support. I have my reasons, of course. Having disdain for an organization in part or even completely isn't a reason to totally reject everything about it. There are aspects to these two organizations that have ...
