about me

I learnt bridge some 53 years ago at school where my physics teacher started a lunch time club.  That was the end of my studies and I spent my years from the age of 13 onwards playing small stakes and being mentored by Paul Gordon (Fritzi's husband). I graduated through the Acol Bridge Club, Stefan's  and St. Johns Wood Bridge Club.  When I was 17 I played against John Collings, Freddie North and Paul Hackett in a game that I could not afford to play in.  Great fun.  I played my first duplicate ay age 30 and it has always been my view that rubber bridge is the best and purest form of the game, I love it.

"Fat Finger Syndrome"
Thanks David, and Kay and I would look forward to a game with you, perhaps we can overcome the time difference and do it. In my locality there are a large amount of 0ctogenarians who, to prevent total boredom and madness are tackling online bridge for the first time. It ...
Which robot is more guilty?
