about me

I have won ma pairs competitions, many swiss teams events including the National Swiss teams on two or three occasions, The Spring foursomes and represented Great Britain and Wales.  Many of these were professional engagements. I was secretary of the LCCBA for while when Richard Fleet was chairman and we ran a very successful congress at Country Hall.  I was also a bridge teacher for many years and together with my wife Jane Preddy ran the West of England Bridge club.  For many reasons these days I no longer play for real but have at the moment regular games on BBO. My basic bridge education was courtesy of Joe Amsbury, the Sharples twins and Jack Marx.  Watching John Collins was very educational,  My wife was a long term friend of Terence Reese who was certainly one of the finest players who ever lived regardless of your views about Beunos Aries.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Do you open either of these hands?
The rule of 20 is even simpler the nearer you are to 20 years old and below the more likely you are to open on crap.

Defense to Strong Club Opening
Jeez I am supposed to remember that lot?
Christopher Donnelly's bidding problem: AKT965 6 AK543 Q
Richard I agree that pass should be forcing but maybe not if 3 were strong? I was thinking 4 was obviously showing a decent suit and clearly denying spade support but why did partner not open 3? I think 4NT might just show tolerance for clubs and ...
Defense to Strong Club Opening
There was a defense whereby a jump overcall was weak or the other three suits. three suiters should not get involved because nothing is breaking well for them.
Defense to Strong Club Opening
I had a full and frank exchange with Harold Franklyn if 1 showed 13 cards with 16 or more why was ! to show 13 cards less than opening bid values be banned?
FRIEDLAND Disqualified From Reynolds Spring KO
RF a weak but wealthy player.
Defense to Strong Club Opening
My favorite defense is a 5NT overcall to ask partner to pick a suit to save in :)

Richard R it can be a badge of rank to be in a minority also it can be lonely.
