about me

I just love bridge, which I have done ever since my grandparents taught me the game when I was 8. Today I run a bridge magazine, Bridge in Norway, write a bridge column in a newspaper three days a week, and play for Norway and professionally in the best events around the world. I also have a wife who is a fine bridge player, and this year our son qualified for the U16 World Championships next year. It will be interesting to see how long we can keep our daughter (now three) away from this addictive and beautiful game.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
A friend has gone - Jon Sveindal has left the Green table
Jon was a great guy, both at and away from the table. I got to know him when I moved for studies to his home town Bergen in 1992. After a while Erik Sælensminde and I teamed up with him and Arild Rasmussen, and in the late nineties we also ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Thanks, Tony - and well done qualifying for the Bermuda Bowl. It sure is irritating with different explanations (that may influence ones decision) and I am not certain who had it right of Kvangraven and Tundal.
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Hi Tony. Wasn’t this a redouble (of 4 hearts) after an initial Splinter (of 4 diamonds) so that (the passed hand) dummy needed at least 12 black cards to fit the explanation? Was it clear that you got the wrong explanation, or could it be that the redouble was ...
2018 European Championships Results
This certainly seems like a time to reflect over past and current scores. I guess different people will draw different conclusions. The main thing is that we unite in playing the game right from here on out.
2018 European Championships Results
The relatively low butler winning score (compared to prior cheat infected events) sure seems like proof that the most succesful cheats didn't take part. I would be extremely pleasantly surprised, though, if nobody was cheating.
Say No To Cheats
I'm sorry Gonzalo, but I don't follow your logic on this hand. Why couldn't your partner have 9x instead of J9 because of the tempo the card was played in? In some of these situations I think we believe we sense more than we actually can sense ...
Say No To Cheats
This sounds like a fine mess. Get us out of it!
Say No To Cheats
So what if the Monegasque Bridge Federation swiftly had found Fantunes guilty of cheating (but maybe not admitted it was collusive) and put them away for one year, which they felt was appropriate. Now all countries (and the EBL plus the WBF) have to accept this outcome and let them ...
Say No To Cheats
Exactly, Adam. That's why the EBL and the WBF have to find a solution so that CAS doesn't have the final say in important decisions for bridge. Either they have to give up the Olympic dream and part totally with CAS, or they have to make their major ...
Nickell-Berg Board 26
This hand is bizarre. Feldman going for the end play in clubs and Meckstroth not unblocking the jack of clubs under the ace for partner to take the last two tricks! Did it really go like this?
