about me

I live in England and am retired. I was never better than a very average player, and nowadays play only "kitchen bridge". However I still follow the game. I'm active on Wikipedia, where I have contributed to a number of articles on bridge and cricket.

"Pakistan, SriLanka and England are duking it out for the fourth spot" Don't forget Bangladesh, who could also finish fourth. Their final game is against Pakistan, which could turn out to effectively be a quarter-final.
"Killing Eve"
ISTR that the scene in question is available on Youtube. I thought that I had a link to it, but I seem to have mislaid it.

Today's problems were yesterday's problems too
The whole magazine is a fascinating read. I was amused by this in the editor's introductory piece, concerning the criteria for international selection: "match temperament, social polish, suavity at the table, as well as ethical conduct must come under consideration as well as technical ability". We don't want ...
Feature articles - historical and biographical
I always enjoy reading your articles, and I am looking forward to the upcoming ones. On a pedantic note, shouldn't it be "Bridge magazine" to avoid any possible confusion, "Bridge Magazine" being an altogether different publication?
New Bridge Magazine!
This is very good news. I've duly registered. At least, I think I have, as I didn't get an automated confirmatory email like I was expecting.
Bridge Magazine RIP?
That's a shame. I ceased being a subscriber a few years ago, so I feel slightly guilty for being in a small way responsible for it seemingly no longer being economically viable. What caused me to stop subscribing was their decision to cease publishing a printed version and to ...
