about me

I've won over 30 National Championships and usually play for Australia (2017, 2016, 2014 etc). I'm a Sydney bridge pro who plays, directs and teaches bridge. My best recent result was 4th with Adam Wildavsky in the Platinum Pairs in Kansas City in March 2017.

JOLLY Upsets MONACO
Last night's viewing of John McAllister's movie Double Dummy, starring Adam Kaplan and his parents among others, was really cool, but Adam's young team beating Monaco is even cooler. Well done and good luck against the Rayner team tomorrow.
Yeh Bros Cup 2017
Tomorrow's Grand Final is between Eric Kokish - Fred Gitelman, Curtis Cheek - Huub Bertens and Josef Blass - "Pepsi", Greco - Hampson, Kalita - Nowosadzki. Pepsi's team narrowly won the three way match from Monaco and the Kranyak team.
Montecatini
In 2019 the European Championships will be held in Opatija Croatia. Do you think that will be a better venue?
Peter Gill's bidding problem: AK862 A QJT9875 ---
Correct. Partner had QJ3 K76 K43 AQ42. 6D was a big winner due to a diamond ruff sometimes beating 6S. 3NT scored OK. Nobody bid to 6NT. 4S scored below average.
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: 84 762 95 KQJ632
At the other table, my opponent Alfredo Versace bid 3C over 2D after the exact same start to the auction.
Scoring errors
While the above ideas are good, I do not share Kit's enthusiasm that such changes will make scoring errors virtually vanish. Example 1 In the last session of the 2015 Reisinger, there's this typical scoring error where Multon and Zimmerman got an impossible plus 90: http://live.acbl ...
To Sabine and Roy
Al - it wasn't a Howell - it was a Snake movement (a faulty Snake movement too, in my opinion, but that's another story). The sequence of tables from 1 to 26 had been reversed for that session so that 1 was now 26, 26 was 1 etc, i.e ...
Wroclaw - the Pairs Schedule
I liked the shorter breaks on the last day (Saturday - 9.30am instead of 10am start, finished at about 6pm instead of almost 8pm). I know that was intended to get play over in time for the Closing Ceremony, but it seemed better than the previous days, in my opinion ...
Open DC Discussion Thread
I think pairs of the calibre of Meckstroth - Rodwell dropping into 64th place is just right. In fact, dropping them in to anywhere from about 30th to 80th seems fine in my opinion. The event they came from - the GNT - is a strong open event. In Australian events, for many ...
EBL Convicts Fantoni-Nunes
John - omitting Monaco players, Giorgio Duboin ahead of Zia Mahmood, Alfredo Versace and Jeff Meckstroth (who is up from tenth to fourth), ref http://www.wbfmasterpoints.com/rankingOpen.asp
