about me

I love our game. I'm more interested in improving than in playing, so I study daily. I became a life master back when that was a high achievement (before strats, before MP inflation). I much prefer playing "up" to "playing down," which to me is a totally different game and not much fun. I'd sure like to find an equal and somewhat steady partner here in south Texas, but prospects aren't that favorable. That causes me pain and sends me to the robots for practice. I most enjoy the more difficult and more subtle parts of our game.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Over the Shoulder. Does everyone know about this?
One of youse two guys is obviously wrong about Shireen, and I suggest we get to the bottom of it all.
Let the cards speak, not the time it takes to play them!
Ah, there it is -- the invitation for this discussion to degenerate into labels, name-calling, and a grand bridge pissing contest. Ellis, you don't know me, and your expression here couldn't be more off. It isn't unreasonable for intelligent people to seek the clarity of definitions of terms ...

Ray, the OP was about the speed of play and penalties thereto. Myself and others have already moved pretty far away from that, and there's no need here to hi-jack the topic. You asked my opinion on three questions, and I've got no problem addressing those. I like ...

Oren, "top player A" while in a club game encounters a LOL who whispers to partner to "Lead a Diamond" when defending a hand. TPA plays the hand, says nothing about it, wins the weekly club game. TPA knows who he is and what his station is among top players ...

No matter how you phrase it, whether "ELITE level of player" or the recently switched to "higher standard of conduct" (and what the heck is that, anyhow?), there's no mistaking your effort to confer "special status" onto a privileged group of people who, despite the claim of special privilege ...

Of course, there is no such thing we can identify as a "player at ELITE (sic) level," but there are certainly behemoth 360-pound NFL lineman and they line up opposite other behemoths and not high school players (while also claiming entitlement to more and other advantages).

What is a "player at ELITE level" and why do such deserve any distinction?

OK Ed, but nobody said a word about justifying cheating. It's a simpler matter of knowing your place. And yes, she didn't change.

I don't appreciate these kinds of legalistic generalizations or the hostile inference that such judgments may somehow apply to me or others. In my opinion and experience, such conclusions about players are destructive and seriously misplaced. I don't buy that the OP represents a victim of other players ...
