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 won the U16 European Pairs Championships! It will be interesting to see how long we can keep our daughter (now four) away from this addictive and beautiful game.

Congratulations to Monaco! Now named official 'winners' of the 2014 European Championships
Embarassing for everyone involved in bridge.
#saynotocheats
Marion, thanks for expressing what so many bridge players around the world are feeling. United we stand. When I hear that Fantunes get a warm welcome in Italy, and I read Avon Wilsmore's revelations about the Blue Team, there seems to be a deep cultural gap. Unless we can ...
The Next Step
It seems like we are going in circles Andy, Michael, Ron et al., and I am going to close mine with a story I heard in Atlanta a few weeks ago. I think it says a bit about a "rules are everything" approach. This is how I remember it: The ...
The Next Step
And for the record, Andy, Michael, Ron et al.: This isn't about "threat", "intimidation" and "bullying". It's about trying to secure fair play. I'm pretty sure all players at the table both agree and agreed how we are/were supposed to play in tempo-sensitive situations. From time ...
The Next Step
Andy. I think out-of-tempo signalling happens quite frequently. Was the defense affected by this, or would the same defense have been found without the huddle? Sometimes it's impossible to tell and normally I give my opponents the benefit of the doubt and move on. The same goes for BIT ...
The Next Step
Bobby Wolff has difficulties getting access to his Bridgewinners account, and has asked me to post this comment for him: It is with no great surprise, at least to me, that Boye, in his fervent desire to make competitive high-level bridge the best it can be, has reached out to ...
The Next Step
Hi Josef. Thanks for contributing to the discussion. When you realise that a game is infected by cheating, you have two choices as I see it: 1) You start cheating and utterly ruin the game or 2) You start working to save the game. Unfortunately when many choose 1), competition ...
The Next Step
The ACBL is one of the few bridge organizations which has had a recording system at all. Unfortunately it has been working badly for several years, but with Robb Gordon as the new National recorder I have hopes that it's moving in the right direction. Sure, I would have ...
The Next Step
Both. TDs are very good at law enforcement, but many players have a better understanding of the bigger picture.
The Next Step
Hi Les. I can assure you that I didn't have our encounter in mind writing this article ;-). We all make "mistakes" in this department; breaking tempo when we really shouldn't. As an experienced partnership (speaking for Espen and myself) it doesn't take many fractions of a second ...
