about me

Hoping to improve my game by osmosis and sporadic uncoordinated efforts. So far, it's a slow process.

ACBL focuses on college students
I wasn't thinking of using BBO during the visit, just telling people about it if it seems appropriate. I have a vision of four bridge players sitting around a table playing bridge, with a small sign saying "Bridge." Bidding boxes and boards optional. But it wouldn't hurt to ...
ACBL focuses on college students
University of Denver (DU), CU Denver, and Metropolitan State University of Denver (Metro). Any other suggestions would be welcome.
Why younger players don't want to learn bridge
I've just realized that, for what I'm calling mental engagement, some applicable concepts from psychology are "subjective self-awareness" and "being in the flow." A hand of bridge, from the time I take it out of the board to the time I put it back, is a quick dip ...
Why younger players don't want to learn bridge
Being dummy doesn't have to be boring. You can try to figure things out, just as if you were holding cards yourself. And if you want to have any chance in the post-mortem, you'd better be tracking :) Joking aside, it's a great opportunity to practice watching the ...
Why younger players don't want to learn bridge
For me, the gratification is in the experience as much as the result. I enjoy the mental experience that I have during the bidding and play. I think this is the same thing as the "puzzle" reference above. So ... make the game as much about the experience as the outcome ...
Big Ideas
That might have been my suggestion -- or at least I'm one of the people who suggested it. My proposal was for a 30-60 second statement/reminder, not a "presentation." Topics to include, on a rotating basis: - tempo, UI, and partner's obligations - calling the director is not a punishment ...
Big Ideas
Points that decay over time: I bet that most very good bridge players who haven't played for x years are still pretty darn good. and will mop up the lower-level events that they're now eligible to enter. (Assuming no catastrophic mental issues, of course.) Rusty is not the ...
Ideas for Unit (or local org) Games?
Pair teams. Our unit (Denver) has discussed this a couple of times but hasn't tried it. The idea came from Kansas City, I think. Works like this: After the entries are closed, group the pairs into A, B, and C so that A and C have the same number ...
Post 7 Copyright & the tramp on the Embankment - Thursday, 31st August 2017
Doesn't seem right. You never know when a work is going to make a comeback. No examples come to mind, but what if there have been no revenues for 10 years, then suddenly there are revenues? Or what if there are a couple of sales one year, then none ...
Post 7 Copyright & the tramp on the Embankment - Thursday, 31st August 2017
One small addition: You've described US copyright. Copyright varies by nation, as does the initiation of copyright protection. This makes it all worse :(
