about me

I've won over 50 National Championships and usually play in the Australian Open team (2019, 2017, 2016, 2014 etc). I'm a Sydney bridge pro who plays, directs and teaches bridge. Perhaps my best recent result was 4th with Adam Wildavsky in the Platinum Pairs in Kansas City in March 2017, or 2nd by one imp in the 2019 Yeh Cup Pairs in Shanghai.

The notorious doctors
The Doctors played some bridge in Australia in 2006. To answer David Corn's question, we need to find an event where one of them played with a partner who is beyond suspicion, IMO that circumstance arose at our 2006 Nationals where Michael Elinescu competed reasonably well against Australia's ...
1st Mutton Cup
That man who is on a winning roll this year -Alex Hydes - won. Results are at: http://www.bridgeextra.com/jhmi-results/. The soubriquet for dinner with Jason Hackett is a mutton tour - hence the name.
Peter Gill's bidding problem: A75 982 KQJ62 AT
2D on the 5332 shape (shapeless?) runs into a six card diamond suit on your right and is likely to go down. Dbl and 1NT lead to plus scores in spades or NT,
Peter Gill's bidding problem: --- A84 JT9865 Q854
Double was a big winner, partner having six spades to KQJ10 and a good hand. 3NT is a lucky make your way.
World Bridge Games ("Olympiad") 2020
Over a decade ago, it wasn't just Jeff who found the bureaucracy of the SBL hard to deal with. At the time I followed some online discussions in other parts of America with similar issues. That collapse of the American Gates-funded idea where funds were meant to be available ...
World Bridge Games ("Olympiad") 2020
I think we can expect an announcement about the venue in Wuhan in September.
World Bridge Games ("Olympiad") 2020
Nicholas Hammond's posts in https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/buffets-gates-world-view/ tell some of the story. I live in Australia. From afar, I followed the School Bridge League's mild successes and ultimate failure between 2005 and 2010 as closely as I could. I do not agree with Nicholas about ...
Peter Gill's bidding problem: A75 982 KQJ62 AT
When the hand occurred at the table, 1NT would be 12-15. I should have included that in the original post.
Director Behavior for I/N Events at Nationals
Andy - you are right - this one is a soluble issue with a simple solution of modifying who follows whom from session to session. For example, Michael Gromoller had to follow the slowest pair in the field for every session of the World Pairs Final in Wroclaw in 2016. It's ...
Director Behavior for I/N Events at Nationals
This is really sad. It's also sad that this very important post might not attract many constructive comments, though it should. Allowing behaviour by officials that scares away I/N's from Nationals - this is about as bad as it gets. Newcomers are the people you want to treat ...
