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!

San Diego room availability
I agree that the new policy, based on limited antidotal offerings, appears to be a success. BTW, I have never had a problem getting a hotel at the Regional level even at the last minute (i.e., the book before date listed in the Regional advertisement.) Perhaps I am choosing ...
San Diego room availability
I think the fact that one can still reserve a room for Philadelphia, more than one month after the reservation period opened speaks to the success of the program -- or perhaps the misunderstanding of many in the bridge community that rooms could be reserved and cancelled (before January 8, 2018 ...
San Diego room availability
Economy lot parking at the airport (less than 3 miles to the playing site) is $13.00 per day. Yeah, one is going to pay for the convenience of parking on-site, but there are less expensive alternatives available.
NABC Hotel Cancellation Policy
Taken to the extreme...then EVERY NABC would have a one-night non-refundable deposit after September 25, 2017.....fortunately, the ACBL did not do this...although that might be a step in the right direction. Currently, each NABC has its own date on which a person might cancel without penalty...and ...
NABC Hotel Cancellation Policy
@Betty, your quote corresponded to the ACBL initial statement that reservations made for the San Diego (ie., fall 2017 NABC) would incur a penalty if cancelled after the date....not the Spring 2018 NABC in Philadelphia. I can't think of a manner in which the ACBL could have communicated ...
NABC Hotel Cancellation Policy
@David, huh? My reading of the hotel reservation said: A one night room deposit will be charged to your credit card at the time of booking, which will be applied to your stay. ** Reservations may be cancelled without penalty on or before January 8, 2018. For reservations cancelled on or ...
NABC Hotel Cancellation Policy
The cancellation policy is the same. You have until a date certain to cancel the reservation without penalty. The only difference is that there is an immediate charge to reserve the room. Albeit the deposit is refundable, perhaps folks might think twice before making a reservation that incurs an immediate ...
Road to the GNT Final Four Part 1
Excellent article! I particularly liked your thoughts at the table re: what might happen at the other table -- and how your thoughts influenced your actions. Thanks.
Prep Before the Game
@Ed....can you REALLY request a change of table based on the lighting? I guess if you were EW pair, it would not matter...but as a NS pair, I would like to know if this is a viable option. Often times the hotel lighting is insufficient for me...and ...
A survey of time preferences for NABC events - comprehensive (kind of) poll
Just a note regarding the query of the number of NABC attended in the last ten years. I answered 5-10. Given that there were 30 NABCs in the referenced time period, my response would tend to indicate that I was an occasional participant. Note, however, that I first attended a ...
