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.

Drop ins to the Blue Ribbons
I don't see Oren's or Max's arguments as at all compelling. Their arguments (if you call them that) are speculative, i.e. IF players could be allowed to drop in, and IF they would have entered originally, and IF the conditions of contest are amended on the ...
Drop ins to the Blue Ribbons
I admit this situation never applies to me, at least so far. But since everybody is giving an opinion, here's mine: Drop-ins neither strengthen or weaken the field of an event, and it's a false argument to present it that way. Drop in's do pollute or contaminate ...
Not Losing Money on NABCs
David, you've got me thinking of running for a BOD spot from D16.
Not Losing Money on NABCs
I don't like what the OP proposed, but I do very much like the outside the box thinking this thread contains. Good stuff. Enough of it might lead to a sustainable proposal. Or, not.
Profitable For-Profit Bridge Clubs
"I know people see me as Bridge Pro and a club owner, but if they will look at the facts without pre-existing bias, I think people will see...." Chris, when I look at the facts w/o pre-existing bias, I see that you're a bridge pro and a Club ...
Profitable For-Profit Bridge Clubs
Well, it was never primarily for you or your enjoyment, anyhow. Don't you "get it" and agree with the presumption that what is good for profit-making bridge clubs is good for bridge, and that if all of us bridge-playing ACBL members will just focus our energies exclusively on putting ...
Profitable For-Profit Bridge Clubs
Chris, I'm not killing bridge in ACBL-land (or anyplace else), and IMO that blameful attitude isn't conducive to making or running a profitable club. I'm not hostile to bridge clubs or their owners, either. Or, to the ACBL. My whole point is that a for-profit company doesn ...
Profitable For-Profit Bridge Clubs
I see that you have many many questions, and that either you awoke very very early to share them, or else you stayed up very very late writing them down. Maybe that's New York. More seriously, who is Alexander Woo and why care what he "thinks?" Many of these ...
My Turn to Speak
What is really sad is how far this thread has moved in its excursion away from what Bahar presented, especially his last paragraph where he talked about a focus on the needs and interests of ordinary players. By "ordinary," I think he meant those players who love and appreciate our ...
My Turn to Speak
"that doesn't mean that the ACBL should STOP (emphasis added) addressing the needs of tournament players" That's not at all what Bahar said; nor did he express a desire to focus exclusively on a single ACBL constituency.
