about me

I'm just a pretty average club player in the UK.  However, I am Chairman of Woking Bridge Club in Surrey, UK, which is a friendly ethical club, so do join us if you fancy a game while visiting the area.

Also, I have a Ph.D. in Statistical Mechanics, and know how the odds of suit distributions really work.

Bridge Photos Needed Please
I have a photo of prisoners in Alcatraz playing Bridge at cut down tables, sitting on hassocks from the chaple and playing with dominoes because they weren't allowed palying cards. ANy use?
Recommended BBO how-to videos
Thank you, Paul - your videos are a game-changer!
Bridge Base Convention Card
I would like to be able to upload my Partner's and my card either as a Word Doc or as a PDF. But this doesn't seem possible.
