about me

I'm a former professor of computer science; now I work at Twitch trying to pretend video games are a job.   Or something like that.

Sometimes I build websites. I built the one you're looking at now.  If you find any bugs, I'm pretty sure they're Steve's fault.

Greg Humphreys's bidding problem: AQT Qxx AQTx Kxx
A fair question; we hadn't specifically discussed level, and "responsive" was simply checked on the card with no further discussion. In general our approach is "double means whatever it needs to mean, which is usually 'I have enough values to want to participate in this auction but no clear ...

If you choose to double, partner will bid 5
Greg Humphreys's bidding problem: AJx AK98x 6 K8xx
Must be a language barrier here; I didn't say anything that suggested I was 100% sure I knew the right answer. Also since neither I nor my partner held these cards, I truly have no idea what you're talking about.
Convention Chart Revisions
awesome work.
Meal Times at Bridge Tournaments
I reject the premise of the question since I would not be playing at such a tournament. If forced to, I would probably bring meals to the 10:30 event and eat lunch at lunchtime, regardless of what else is going on.

Is there a Director in this room?
