about me

Have played professionally occasionally the last few years, would be happy to do so more frequently. I normally play locally (CT, NJ, NYC), but would certainly consider travelling, especially to a Nationals. Send me a Private Message if interested.

CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
I may be missing [i]the[/i] point* but still making [i]a[/i] point... *what exactly is that?
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
So the question is which behavior was worse?
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
Denounce...or renounce?
What other hand types merit jump responses to strong artificial 1C or 2C (or other) openings?
"After 1-2...In all cases opener could be the declarer." In spades?
The CAS Judgment re FN: What’s Next?
"They are bridge pariahs and will always be so. The same with the Doctors and the others." That remains to be seen...
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
I do not recall seeing anything that would make me think that any titles or masterpoints have been vacated. IIRC, there were adjustments made for ACBL seeding points.
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: QJ84 75 76 AKQJ5
What's the punchline?
Would you ever refuse to play a particular opponent?
Maybe a 1-day suspension, a day of your choice?
Would you ever refuse to play a particular opponent?
No, I don't...
After 1!C (P) 1!H (P) 1NT (P), under what conditions should you bid 2!H with a five-card heart suit?
Another consideration -- who is playing better today? Form of scoring, state of the event can enter into the decision as well.
