about me

I am a C.P.A. and enjoy bridge for the logic of it.  Started in college (UNC) but, luckily not until my last year.  Ran local games for over 30 years with my wife.  Mentoring newer players is a great joy, to see them get more comfortable with this great game.

Partner forgets agreement/ UI/ Fielding a psych
No UI. You explained your agreement correctly. What you figure out looking at your hand is your business, not the opponents. Who knows, maybe partner considered AKJxxxx of clubs was solid enough.
Katz, Levin, Rodwell Elected to HOF
Hank has the right idea. Maybe something like 2 or 3 world titles or 4/5 NABC's. Also wins in women's events are, and possibly should be, downgraded because it is not an open field.
Katz, Levin, Rodwell Elected to HOF
Nick has been in since 2008.
Bridge Stories and Jokes
I recall when I was playing with my future wife, we had played several rounds with poor hands and she said "It is going to be a long night". An opponent asked how I interpreted that and I said "Invitational".
Katz, Levin, Rodwell Elected to HOF
Now in about 7 years Steve Weinstein will be old enough and we will have the whole Nickell team in there, as they should be. Any way to know the voting totals?
Steve Tyer's bidding problem: 4 AKJ84 AQ842 Q6
Undiscussed. I was afraid they might take it as 3-card spade support with strong dislike for NT.
ACBL District 11 Director Report from BOD Member
Yes Ray, that is one like I talked about.
ACBL District 11 Director Report from BOD Member
I agree that this is a wonderful report. I know here (District 7) that Bob Heller issues one from time to time, but this one is much better.
Best way to handle this situation?
if we have to alert every call partner makes that is undiscussed but could be conventional auctions would take forever. If asked, I would say we have not discussed this sequence, but if you like, I will tell you how I am interpreting it.
Calling All Legal Beagles
Question one is once. More than that would tell partner declarer has more than expected. Question two I think is that someone with a physical problem should be able to correct mistakes without calling the director.
