about me

I started playing bridge at school and have played regularly ever since. I have been a regular county player for many years but don’t choose to play in recent times preferring to be on the golf course especially in the summer months.

I worked in the car industry for my entire career, starting in the engineering laboratory as a metallurgist (I have a degree in Metallurgy and Materials Science from Birmingham University, graduating in 1977), then moving into Quality finishing as Quality Assurance Manager. I was lucky enough to be able to take advantage of an early retirement scheme after 34 years in the summer of 2011.

I am married (32 years this August 2019) to a former ladies international who is still interested in but hasn’t played bridge for many years.

Thanks for everyone’s votes and input, very enlightening. As a few pointed out, following the cue bid by N the partnership was only forced to suit agreement, so 4C was not forcing, merely invitational. Obviously it’s difficult to be absolutely objective seeing both hands. I can’t see ...
