about me

Ex-junior (how long can I call myself that..?) I now play mostly in and around Oxford, occasionally national events. I've got a little boy so took a break but am starting to play more again.

I'm a software engineer, recently moved out of finance to focus on search/ai/machine learning.

United Kingdom

Yes! Not bad for someone that hasn't bid yet
Seven Heaven
7 gold medals from European championships, 3 from world Olympiads and two venice cups? I would call that more than 'competent'. None of Usa vs Bulgaria in the open, or China vs Poland in the other VC found the killing lead either. Let's congratulate the Swedish north!
BB QF USA1 vs. BULGARIA Session 2
According to the Vugraph commentators, on board 26 4 was kickback, then 4 showed one keycard and 4NT enquired about the Q. Not sure about 5/6
BB QF USA2 vs. SWEDEN Round 1
Someone said on Vugraph that the 6 IMPs was a fine for slow play not carry-over?
