I'm an above average club-level player who started way back in the 1960's playing Acol at school.    Between school and Uni I played a lot of bridge at Cardiff bridge club and later represented Sheffield University in the late 60's.  I started playing Little Major at Uni and had great fun and some success with it as a system.

I stopped playing when my job didn't give me the time to play, but I still kept an interest in the game and developed my brown-sticker multi-two system during that period.

After leaving England, living in Bermuda for 5 years and moving to Sydney, Australia I eventually moved to the Ulladulla area on the NSW South Coast in 1994.  I soon discovered the local bridge club and started playing again after nearly 30 years.   The default system at Mollymook is Standard (5CM SNT) but I didn't enjoy that scheme.  When Little Major became legal in Australia I played that with one partner for a couple of years and then we developed our own system based on 11-14 NT, 5CM, unbalanced diamond and a short forcing club.  Almost all responses to 1-level openings are transfers.

I am now an Australian Silver Life Master, hoping to live long enough to become Gold Life Master.
