Used to play competitive chess, now active in computer chess testing. Fond of music, reading, various sports, games of logic.

Started to play bridge in 1974. Won my first major tournament in 1980.

More interested in bidding than in card play.

I used to be a regular commentator at BBO.

Who Will Win the Open European Championship?
I miss Hungary from the list. IMO, we have a very strong team.
Liam Milne's bidding problem: Q964 A6 KJ652 K7
