about me

Have played professionally occasionally the last few years, would be happy to do so more frequently. I normally play locally (CT, NJ, NYC), but would certainly consider travelling, especially to a Nationals. Send me a Private Message if interested.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Conflict of Interest
"I don't see anyone getting rich from online bridge." I wouldn't conclude that nobody [i]is[/i] getting rich from that statement...YMMV
Conflict of Interest
"What's wrong with the ACBL benefiting financially?" Nothing, nothing at all. But why make it look otherwise?
Conflict of Interest
"ACBL is not keeping any of the fee." This strikes me as technically true, but misleading -- the ACBL [i]is[/i] benefiting financially.
What's the best % play?
BTW, this was not a random comment, this [i]was[/i] the situation at my table (assuming the same hand from the Common Game).
Conflict of Interest
"a fully aware Board" Is [i]that[/i] a given?
What’s Qxx(x) Worth?
Indeed, instead of dwelling on what is wasted, it makes more sense to look at what is working...
What’s Qxx(x) Worth?
Not sure what the question is -- if the rest of the hand is the same, KJx > Kxx > Qxx > Jxx/xxx. BTW, Qxx does have nuisance value when the AK are in the same hand...
What's the best % play?
What if (say) LHO had 6s, RHO 2s?
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
I may be missing [i]the[/i] point* but still making [i]a[/i] point... *what exactly is that?
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
So the question is which behavior was worse?
