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.

What bridge really needs to become relevant again.
I have enjoyed all the comments here. What strikes me here and over and over on BW is how, if you say "Mom and Apple Pie are Great!" there will be profound disagreement after just two posts. Amazing! John, thanks for starting this thread, anyhow. It's very good that ...
Time to simplify the laws?
Or, the players who get that 24 point hand consume the time, not because they are slow but because 24 point hands take longer to frame a series of bids bid than does a six point hand. This is perfectly fair.

Peg, I don't take issue with your comment. It's similar to my beliefs.

Sheesh Ed, or perhaps Sheepsh! I haven't said that only elite players (whatever that is) consider themselves elitist. I meant to indicate I think that is a common belief, so common as to seem obvious to me. I would agree that at the very highest competitive level of our ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Hi Peg, I didn't suggest or offer two sets of rules. I suggested the existing rules aren't designed for regular players, but instead the regular players must abide the rules which are purposed for elitist players, because that is the only existing set. I also didn't offer ...

Here is another observation. The regulations, rules, and/or laws have an apparent purpose that is noplace stated, namely who these rules are intended to serve. (If it is actually written someplace, I'll place my bet that it's largely ambiguous). By this, I mean that the Rules etc ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Ed, I'm happy to limit my concepts to UI issues, which are clearly whacked out in rule and practice. I'm not near the expert you are on the laws, and I haven't even detected that the thread has focused on laws 92 or 93. I made a ...

Ray, PM me if you'd like to pursue your questions with me and we can privately carry out more discussion on post mortems.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Jeff, that is a great question, and it's past time it was considered. Without proposing exact language, I'd say a good first step would be to stop the insane practice of second-guessing every players intention. By this, I mean make agreement that the current practice, regulation, rule, law ...

Peg. It is a gigantic post-mortem, and Eugene Hung did create it. He also tried to explain the reason he did that was in order to not pollute the prior "congratulatory thread" with post-mortem comments. I was only speaking factually; not with condemnation of Eugene. Ray, in terms of a ...
