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.

ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What should the selectors do?
I voted: "The Selectors should lean towards selecting the team that qualified but should bear in mind that they are aiming to select a team good enough to win a World Championship." The women's team would surely be stronger for the inclusion of Nicola Smith, though it would be ...
A sign of things to come
That's very sad. As an ordinary EBU member, I view the Olympiad as being second in importance only to the Bermuda Bowl and Venice Cup, and want England to be represented by the strongest possible Open and Women's teams. If that's not the majority attitude amongst EBU ...
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?

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 ...
Shireen Mohandes's bidding problem: --- KT93 87432 7652
If it's a penny a hundred, I think I'd bid 5H. But if it's £10 a hundred, I'd pass. :)
Harrison-Gray the novelist - which pen name?
The dates from the London Gazette that Paul quotes are rather confusing: On 16th April 1943 M. C. HARRISON-GRAY was reported to have been promoted to Flying Officer On 20th August 1943 the notification of 16th April 1943 concerning M. C. HARRISON-GRAY was cancelled 2nd July 1943: M. C. H ...
Yet Another "Identify That Bridge Player"
Clue 4 seemed to ring a bell, but it was only with clue 5 that light finally dawned.
Harrison-Gray the novelist - which pen name?
"...after leaving Haileybury School he joined the family brewing business. When the company was taken over he turned to writing, at first fiction..." Do we know when the family business was taken over? If so, that might help in searching for his fiction.
