At Monday’s club game, I played 3NT from the East seat on Board 2 Section B, after North had shown diamond length.  South led the ♣5 (presumptively fourth best). […]

Over the past few days, I spent some time watching the USBF Team Trials to choose USA-2. As expected, pairs bid aggressively and, in general, played and defended very well. Also, as expected, there were some disasters. […]

I remember as a boy listening on the radio to Jeannette MacDonald singing “Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life’. It was most embarrassing for a youngster to hear a middle-aged woman proclaim to the world at the top of her voice that at long last she had finally experienced deeply satisfying sex. Yes, even as a boy I knew she wasn’t referring to […]

I just learned from Mike Whitman that yesterday Don Krauss passed away quietly after a gradually debilitating illness. I met him in 1971 when he was partnered by Lew Mathe on a team with Norman and Edgar and John Swanson and Dick Walsh who (unsuccessfully) represented Zone 2 in Taiwan. Coincidentally, that event was captured by The Dallas Aces […]

Because my schedule often makes playing in tournaments difficult, I play a high percentage of games in clubs.  One product of that experience is that I observe quite a bit of Breaks in Tempo.  My perception is that partners of  the tempo breakers seem to make more frequent good decisions than they do when there is no tempo break. Hence, my joy […]

Only 3 double digit swings this time.  Two red games bid/not bid and one slam bid/not bid.  All swings this time were in bidding judgment - this seems to be my usual conclusion as I review the results. […]
