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.

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?
Say No To Cheats
Hi Richard. I am very disturbed by your comment(s) here. It seems like you (and a few other contributors) are projecting players' reasons for supporting "Say no to cheats" through a) a lack of knowledge or/and b) your own standards. In my view most players want a fair ...
Say No To Cheats
First to Bernard: What you write here sounds very promising. So this means that Fantoni-Nunes and Fisher-Schwartz have a 10 year ban from WBF events? And what is the situation for admitted cheats like Piekarek-Smirnov? And what about Balicki-Zmudzinski? What about Buratti-Lanzarotti? Please explain the WBF take on all these ...
Say No To Cheats
Dear Mr. Pascal. You sound like the WBF General Counsel David Harris in the fall of 2015: "Witch hunt", "Kangaroo court". It's still so far from the truth and, though not surprising, disappointing to see that your take on this hasn't changed. The players are fed up by ...
Say No To Cheats
When something is broken, we should try to fix it. Too many organizers seem reluctant to make changes. If there are legal problems to get anything done because of CAS and the Olympic dream, just leave it behind! The integrity of the game is far more important than being under ...
Say No To Cheats
The initiative to voice players' concern about this topic came from Zia after the EBL lost in CAS and Fantoni soon after showed up in Barcelona to play. But this isn't an anti-Fantoni campaign - it's a statement of how important the integrity of the game is for most ...
