about me

Ex-junior, I now play mostly in and around Oxford, occasionally national events. I've just had a little boy so don't have time for much in-person bridge at the moment (so read about it on this site instead!) 

 

I'm a former software engineer, now a product manager. I'm interested in computer bridge, e.g.  have dabbled with my own version of deep finesse, though only for my own amusement.

Country
United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Swinging at the club
Oh I think it was, I think I was a diamond trick behind with my comment about ruffing with the ace and exiting. I'll correct
High Level Reverses
I don't play acol with many partners, mostly SAYC or 2-1. That's what my partner expected as well (I was 3541 19 count and we ended up in a hopeless 5)
High Level Reverses
A related question came up the other day over the meaning of a jump rebid after a 2-1 (playing straight Acol so 4CM and 2 was not GF) 1 - 2 3 How would you play 3?
What is the weakest holding with which....
Nearly passed out 2 last week with an 11 card spade suit neither of us had bid. Having passed my 7 card suit twice I slipped up and balanced on the third chance (partner had AKTx)
