about me

Living as I do inthe Netherlands, I am a member of the european bridgecommunity.


My modest bridge-abilities are expressed playing in what in America is probably regional competition (hard enough for me)


I was hooked on this game as a student and have been playing ever since (when moving the first research-point is what bridgeclubs are in the area)


I have 4 kids around 20 years of age who are more and more selfreliant and leaving home. I enjoy that process very much.


Next to my passion for this game I also enjoy science fiction, crosswords, other puzzles and mindgames and of course supporting my kids in their endeavours

What "Kind" of Bridge do YOU play MOST FREQUENTLY?
clubbridge: Yes, that's most frequent. And we do get masterpoints (though I would play if I didn't get any, as they don't really interest me) But I play at the club to prepare for competition

Tore Skoglund's bidding problem: 6 Q543 8 AKJ8652
This hand, for me, is not about how many hearts to bid, but about trying to win the final contract (making or not). If partner has values, I would like to be in a making 4. If he is minimal I want to try to buy it in 4 ...
