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 or Gatlinburg. Send me a Private Message if interested.

Joshua Donn's bidding problem: x AQT AJx 8xxxxx

Trick 1 Pause, Platinum Pairs

First up is #27: Mahaffey.
