about me

currently playing pro after retiring from of several bridge world articles and one book: "Invitation to Annihilation". no national championships but 100+ regional firsts or seconds.  Photo is from a trip to the fabulous Iceland (BTW: "Icemachine" runs a great club in Reykjavik). Resist the Orange Abomination.

Massimo Lanzarotti readmitted to the ACBL?
If one were a cynic, one would believe someone's palms were greased. After all, how could this benefit the ACBL, the bridge world, or ethics in general?
Questions for theorists
Thanks- how do you play 2NT?
Questions for theorists
Thank you!
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
A personal aside: when I was a young player a national-caliber partnership took me to committee to overturn a result at the table. Ron Gerard ran the committee and deflected the "fame" factor which- ((unfortunately in my subsequent experience often distorted the committee deliberations))- I am grateful for. At least ...

When I played a club game in Reykjavik, the default WAS barometer. Additionally, this gives the organizers the choice of showing OR not showing the leaders, depending on the event, something that can build excitement.
Hool - A Prelude to Bridge
I agree with Bayone but did not click "like" because he confused MIT with U of C. Apologies to all my super students in the James Franck Institute 79-83!
Your preferred defenses vs. 1NT
it's also a good convention to "train" on
Chris Owen RIP
My deepest condolences. To lose a child is the worst thing that can happen to anyone.
French carding agreements
my concern isn't with merits of the question: "having none?", it is your assertion: "Where players are reluctant to give or use UI, count is more popular." Deliberate or not you have made a not-so-veiled accusation.
French carding agreements
I may read you incorrectly, but it seems this is a hostile comment implying attitude firsters depend on UI! Please correct my first impression.
