about me

I am one of the founders of bridgewinners.com. More than half of my life has been spent travelling the world playing bridge. My wife Jenny and I have settled in Florida and have three children, Danielle, Brandon, and Ryan. We are both professional bridge players and met at the 2003 Bermuda Bowl in Monte Carlo. I love bridge.

Reporting an Unethical Incident
There was absolutely nothing in the hand worth calling the director for an adjustment. So I could call the director and say this player did this, they will take the hand and then poll players for their partner’s defensive action to make sure that the UI didn’t affect ...
Reporting an Unethical Incident
The goal shouldn’t be to catch people who do things wrong, they should be to stop them from doing things wrong. The way this should be handled is, the directors should immediately look at the tape, see if the infraction occurred and if so they should immediately warn the ...
Reporting an Unethical Incident
There was a video camera at the table.
Reporting an Unethical Incident
I was able to verbally convey everything to the director in 30 seconds. Most of the info on the form is related to event info, opponent, board number, etc. All of the contextual info is obvious because of when they received the call. I didn’t mean to blame the ...
Reporting an Unethical Incident
The ethics problem is that it was deliberate. It wasn’t a close call which suit to signal for, it was obvious. I believe that the person took their time specifically to draw attention to the fact that they were choosing to play the cards in that order.
Reporting an Unethical Incident
The WBF process is similar. I got an automated response when my post submitted. I didn’t write the OP to complain about getting railroaded. I didn’t like that I felt like I had initiated a player memo even though I hadn’t. If it could happen to me ...
Reporting an Unethical Incident
He played the correct suit. The correct suit was pretty obvious to the defense anyways so it wasn’t something I would ever ask for an adjustment over. It was more about the behavior which IMO felt like a deliberate attempt to convey unauthorized info. I may have been wrong ...
Reporting an Unethical Incident
I don’t remember the exact words but it was something like “ty for letting us know”. I was certainly left with the impression that they would pursue it.

Clearly I should have double checked what I was told about how you qualified before posting it online. Sorry and thanks for correcting.
