I teach bridge for a living. (Before that I was in the sports betting business).

\n

My favourite bridge book is Culbertson's Red Book on Play.

\n

Reese and Kelsey are my two favourite authors - they opened my mind up to what bridge is really all about.

\n

I've represented my country, South Africa, in a few World Championships, and always look forward to coming up against the world's best players.

\n

When I think about how much of my life I've devoted to the game, I'm reminded of what the great writer, Somerset Maugham, said;-

\n

'I would have children taught it as a matter of course, just as they are taught dancing; in the end it will be more useful to them, for you cannot with seemliness continue to dance when you are bald and potbellied; nor, for that matter, can you with satisfaction to yourself or pleasure to your partner continue to play tennis or golf when you are well past middle age. But you can play bridge so long as you can sit up at a table and tell one card from another. In fact, when all else fails - sport, love, ambition - bridge remains a solace and an entertainment.'
