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 or Gatlinburg. Send me a Private Message if interested.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
I apologize for this question
"Announceable" doesn't [i]have[/i] to be one of the two different answers...
Another "what is standard?" poll
"Could you provide an example of a hand that would make a takeout double of 1♦ then want to bid a natural nonforcing 2NT?" Others have already done so...
Another "what is standard?" poll
So 3 would be "logically" forcing as well?
Another "what is standard?" poll
"Logically 2NT is forcing." Neither forcing nor non-forcing is illogical...
Opening 7NT
I'm picturing John Belushi skulking furtively in "Animal House"...
I can certainly remember the last time I missed one...ouch.
Your opinion on partner's opening bid Gatlinburg KO.
What did the other table do?
Wrong view on multi 2d by ACBL
Forcing pass [i]is[/i] essentially constructive, packing several different hand types into one [s]bid[/s] call. EditAdd: Thx, Ed Reppert
What does this 4Heart bid mean ?
"2NT-3♣ as a command for opener to bid 3♦ was part of Blue Club." Not Gladiator?
What does this 4Heart bid mean ?
"Such a method has merit..." Sure, very good [i]if[/i] you happen to have 54M, not sure how good it is for (say) balanced hands with 4M or m hands... I guess I'm just missing the point, won't be the first time.
