I am currently on my 5th bridge episode. The earlier episodes were brought to an end by moving to a different city or country. I have played bridge in England, France, Germany, Belgium and now New Zealand.

\n

I have been playing in Auckland since early 2011. Until around Easter 2016, I was just a now and then club player with a range of partners and the occasional success. More recently, I have found myself in a position to play in a number of tournaments as well as in club events and my success in tournaments means that I find it easier to get partners to play in more tournaments.

\n

My tournament results are improving and I am bringing home a steady supply of bottles of wine and small cash prizes. My biggest win to date was in November 2017 when I was carried to first place in an 8B open pairs tournament by Stanley Abrahams - a regular contributor on Bridgewinners. That success led to a news report on the New Zealand Bridge website which described me as a rising star - I will try not to let that go to my head but I will be happy if it helps me in my partnership quest.
