about me

Been playing for 55+ years, but am still at the intermediate level.  Have been teaching beginner bridge to seniors.  Strong believer in the 5Fs--fun, focus, forgive, forget, and if none of those work go into a private place to shout the 5th F.  Another f is for frustration; but we always come back to play in spite of it.

Age - JUST a Number!
There's a woman at a non-sanctioned duplicategame I play in who now is 101. Plays rarely, but not too badly, except "I always have bad cards." When she turned 100, we gave her lifetime free play. (We ARE generous)

ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed
"Bud, I can agree that a huge percentage of members have no idea that he the recent CEO has been fired and I'll betcha that will remain true for quite a while!" My guess is that a huge % of the members did not know (or care) that there was ...
Pop History: Goren remembers Somerset Maugham (Sports Illustrated, January 17, 1966)
I share this quotation on the first day of my Beginner Bridge Classes: Bridge is the most diverting and intelligent card game that the wit of man has so far devised I would have children taught it as a matter of course, just as they are taught dancing; in the ...
Marching Towards Goofyville
When the movie,The Odd Couple was filmed around 1966, there was a scene at the Mets' Shea Stadium. During the regular game that day, the Pirates batted out of turn (might have involved Roberto Clemente, but I'm not sure.)
ACBL - Raleigh Regionals
“You play bad bridge.” Wow! If a director ever said that to me, I would know he was right, but I would report him to his bosses.
