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.

I play 2/1 with the normal stuff. I don't much care for the more obscure ones, b/c remembering them distracts from my judgment.

It's About Time
OK, I don't mind being one to name an elephant in the thread. It's gamesmanship. (There are many elephants). At one club I used to frequent, there are players who absolutely refuse to claim. It isn't, I think, because they can't count their tricks or don ...

I find this entire thread disgustingly off-topic.
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
He may have died there, as have we all, at one time and in one way or another. His, however, would doubtless be a spectacle to behold.
Call for Quorum ATL ACBL Annual Membership Meeting
Calling for motions isn't the same thing as a focused and expanding effort to reach a quorum, and maybe it is even divisive because of the scattered results that typically result. Also, the issue isn't what time the quorum effort begins, but it is about the intensity of ...
Call for Quorum ATL ACBL Annual Membership Meeting
I share the disappointment. However, I don't share the judgment. It looks to me it will take a much stronger effort, starting earlier, following through at the end, and not giving up so easily. Yes, I am disappointed, too. But equally, I'm surprised there was no communication about ...
Board of Governors - Live video stream
I watched some of this. The chairman seemed particularly incompetent. Other board members at the front table were disinterested, looking around, talking to one another instead of listening to speakers. All of what I saw bears replacement in the interest of developing effective governance. All IMHO.

Says who, Ray?

Does anyone know what time it is?
Peg, in San Antonio we get one Regional every two years, alternating with Austin 75 miles north. Outside of that, we're looking at Houston (200 miles) or Dallas (250-ish). San Antonio being a tourist destination and a large city too, I'll just say I'd really love it ...
Democracy ACBL-style: ATL General Membership Meeting.
Chris, Thank you for making this effort. I would be well satisfied with one Atlanta motion: amend the by-laws to permit proxies. If that is done, the rest can follow logically (or, illogically, but at least the rest can follow). Politics -- which is what this is -- is often ugly. I ...
