about me

I like bridge!  It is challenging, and humbling, and generally fun.  I am a student of the game and am always interested in learning more.  I root for the underdog and follow the best.  The game has taught me things that I didn't learn in kindergarten...i.e., play fair, don't hit people (literally or figuratively), say you are sorry when you hurt people... Bridge has taken me places that I never thought I'd go....and I am enjoying every step of the journey.

And...I'd rather be lucky AND good!

Bridge online tutorials for beginners?
I would not disagree with any of the above-mentioned suggestions, but for me, looking back at my beginning days, I would not change a thing: BBO is the place to go. That included playing many free games on BBO (mostly all types of tournament games) to get a sense of ...
Gatlinburg Regional 2017
@Alan, I live in Southern New England, and am quite willing to drive 4 hours (after 6 hours I prefer to fly, but would consider driving), and my research suggests are no where near as many regionals to attend as you suggest. Shucks, even driving 6 hours, for me to ...
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: T3 8743 A8 K9862
I am often accused of playing my opponents rather than my cards (alas, it is most often true)...but based on your comment here, do you think that is a bad thing? a thing to be curtailed or one to be encouraged?
Sabrina Miles's bidding problem: AJ Q43 QJ853 K95
Other than pass or double, what other calls would you consider Kieran?
Sabrina Miles's bidding problem: AJ Q43 QJ853 K95
A broken clock is correct twice a day :) 6 is lay down. 4nt makes 6. For all those 0 boards, there are also 100 boards.
Board 9 from the 04/10/2018 Common Game
What is the most effective manner for E-W to compete after N's opening 3 preempt?
Sabrina Miles's bidding problem: AJ Q43 QJ853 K95
From the common game, on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 -- Board 9. Note, those who passed 3 and left it to partner, who is equally constrained, scored a whooping 25% of the MP.
Jay Barronen's bidding problem: Kxx Axx Kxx Axxx
I don't think my p really has s. I would guess that the 2 bid was forcing and required me to further describe my hand. 2NT does so. Leaving p in opponents opening suit, when I have 3 pieces and opponent opened in 3rd seat opposite my p ...
David Birds Inappropriate Comment
@sathya....isn’t that why we have commentators? Not defending Bird here, but when I watch Vugraph, I like it that the commentators have opinions and views —right or wrong — the spoken commentary has added so much to the game that one must give them a pass every once in ...
Gabay and McDevitt Win Mixed Pairs
Fantastic!
