about me

Available for Teaching.  Should you wish to learn my system and how it can generate games (recently, 73%, 71%, and 84% in Swiss as retained partner), it may open up a new dimension and new world of bridge for you to consider :)

We had a strong CEO, and then . . . we had Jay Whipple . . . only one survived :(
ACBL Bulletin Review of When to Bid Notrump

What am I missing?
This is bridge modern style. 21st century bridge is winning bridge. Old fashioned bridge gets old fashioned results (try Roth-Stone today and you'll be massacred). I did the same (Landy on 4-4M) in my first Blue Ribbon Pair, found a 4-4 fit, and went on to finish 4th. In ... is time to consider an electronic Bridge Bulletin & Daily Bulletin?

Steve; I was there for six years. The Presidents utilized their position to do many things, including waiving rules and regulations, and were always accommodated. Also, the President both appoints BoD members to all Committees, appoints all Committee Chairs, forms new Committees and/or abolishes others (with a couple of ...
Thank you, Michael, by far the best comment on this Article. Or, at least, one with which I fully concur.
