about me

I'm from the Washington, DC area.

I usually attend 2 or 3 NABCs per year.  I've reached the stage where I'm disappointed not to qualify for the second day (I often get to the second day) and pleasantly surprised to make the overalls.

I'm the president of my unit and a frequent bridge volunteer.

I'm an attorney.  My other hobbies are dancing, hiking, and knitting.

My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
It was free. The hardest part was finding the 15 year old postcard with my ACBL number.
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
When I rejoined back in 2003 (I think) after a 15-year lapse in membership, they reinstated all 12 of my masterpoints.
Meaning of 4C
I don't play multi but I play 4 as preempt RKC.
Convention Cards in NABC+ events
It's required to be alerted if overcaller is an unpassed hand, but it's never required to be prealerted.
Convention Cards in NABC+ events
I don't know about the WBF convention card, but the ACBL convention card leaves very little room to describe a strong club system beyond the fact that it's a strong club system. I think it would be a good idea for ACBL to have a supplemental part (which ...
Never a Senior
I thought the point of senior events was to cater to a group whose cognitive skills have changed because of age in a way that affects bridge-related skills. If that's the point, then why not look at the available research and come up with a sensible age cutoff?
Mini-Blue vs. 0-2500 Young Pairs vs. Daily Pairs Difficulty
There is very little difference between the open chart and the open+ chart in a pair game.
Never a Senior
Someone explained the change to me as done to conform with WBF, but it sounds like if that's what they thought they were doing, they got it wrong. This phase-in would be a lot more reasonable than just bumping the age back 5 years just 6 years after bumping ...
Never a Senior
If every 6 years they raise the age by 5 years, letting in one additional year of birthdays (like they did this time), then for 2026 they'll raise the age to 70, and I'll squeak in right before 2032 (when they raise the age to 75).
Bakersfield club game
With 7 hearts and a decent hand, you'd be taking advantage of unauthorized information if you didn't bid 3 even though you know partner might correct to spades.
