about me

I am a full time professional player, and have been so since 2004 (before that, I was semi-professional). I play in all the Nationals, a few Regionals, and do a little online teaching. My wife Debbie is also a full-time professional. We have a son, Kevin. I have two daughters, Ivana and Jahna, from a previous marriage

Kieran: "I suspect that a partner who bid 5S and wasn't paying me well would be playing the rest of the session opposite an empty chair." That is the type of sentence that gives professionals a bad name. I would hope that, if the Director were called, you would ...

King please or Jack please? ;)
Ok, So we don't know how many hearts E has (if right-side up, must be Q5 doubleton). But West cannot read the 5. So, next question, do they play Smith? If not, it may be that West is scared to play a second heart. what fascinates me most about ...
MI in Montecatini
Yu: "E does not have to tell N that he thinks now W messed up and he is going to pass. " The question is WHY does East think that? Whatever East knows about the answer to that question, North should know also - with the exclusion of the hand East actually ...

Looking For a Brilliancy from Montecontini
"will this comment be flagged?" Only if you ask....sort of the same as 'can you pass that bid?'
Protection ?
Alan F: My suggestion was what I think the Law should be not what it is. I see that flagrant 4 bid as a "0% play". So the opponents always lead the right Q (assuming that lead is reasonable). I see two basic advantages yo this method: 1) It ...
The Worst Convention Ever
"4 was an ask for this pair. If you make 5 Super Gerber, you can't bid clubs to the 6 level." Not necessarily. You could play 4 thru 4 as transfers to the 3 other suits.
