about me

I am a full time professional player, and have been so since 2004 (before that, I was semi-professional). I play in all the Nationals, a few Regionals, and do a little online teaching. My wife Debbie is also a full-time professional. We have a son, Kevin. I have two daughters, Ivana and Jahna, from a previous marriage

Should The Pass be Disallowed after the Pause
Ilya: If N-S had a clear agreement to show aces over a quantitative 4N, then why would North have broken tempo over 5. It's obvious that, whatever each player thought, the agreement itself is fuzzy. "To me quick 5NT would be "we're off two aces", and a ...
Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
I'm not sure, but I think there's a difference between 20 years in jail where you could eventually be proved right, and accepting a bridge ruling that went against you where you can never be proved right.
Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
Obviously, this is subjective. But there needs to be some new fact, or the opinion of the director(s) needs to be 'provably' incorrect. A declarer who doesn't know what the contract is doesn't suddenly get to wake up and make plays he would have made had he ...
Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
Mike N: My experience is the opposite. I think there used to be more revokes. And that's with the change in reporting and communication - the ability for those has definitely increased.
Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
David Y: "If at all possible, no penalties for not bidding in turn or revoking" This is a complete mischaracterization of what I (for one) want. If there is any possibility of damage, the non-offenders get redress. What I want is that when there is obviously no damage, then there ...
Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
There is a big difference between a player calmly having the philosophy 'I'll never claim, in case something goes wrong', and a player who made a false claim banging the cards on the table and angrily saying 'you want to steal from me. I guess I should never claim ...
Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
Marty H, Mike M and Mike B: I guess if the actual words were 'I'll run all the diamonds' or 'I'm going to run all the diamonds' (I doubt if the actual words were 'I intend to run all the diamonds' - most people don't talk in that ...
A "strong" 2C ruling in SB's favour
I think that any Law that is based on HCP is a poor Law.
Slam invite question
Slammish two suiter in + m seems more useful to me than separating all those 1-suited spade slam tries.
What does (1!C) 1!D (1!H) x show?
Christopher: If 1 were forcing you would be correct. It's not uncommon to play it as passable. This is how I play. I want to be able to bid 1 on (say) AQ9xx, xxx, x, xxxx without having it be that partner must bid - and we have ...
