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.

The non World Wide Bridge Contest
The WBF received a small portion of each contestant's table money via their bridge club. Surely nobody feels like legal action. My 8,000 figure was just an estimate. I'm not sure how many people took part,
Tony Rolfe's bidding problem: A QJ943 9 AQ8432
At our table, they opened 2H, my partner bid 2S and I ended up in 3NT with the 1-5-1-6 hand, making nine tricks. Here's the full hand: http://www.nsw.bridgeaustralia.org/showtraveller.asp?id=295749&board=30&headeventid=8427
The non World Wide Bridge Contest
Giorgos - so the WBF advertised an event a year ago, which over 8,000 people played in, with advertised prizes of over $100,000 value - $20,000 cash, plus prizes in the form of airfares and accommodation..... then the WBF cancelled the Finals and the prizes ..... and hardly anyone comments ...
Why isn't Marty Bergen in the HOF?
We played a 28 board match against Larry Cohen and Marty Bergen at the Orlando Nationals about two years ago. They were delightful to play against, real gentlemen who enjoyed the game. If you look up Marty Bergen on ACBL Live, you see that he played in a couple of ...

The non World Wide Bridge Contest

Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
Some countries get financial benefits because bridge is considered an Olympic sport in those countries. The question is whether that outweighs the many disadvantages of bridge being an Olympic sport. The pendulum seems to have swung so that it is definitely not worth pursuing bridge as an Olympic sport. Helgemo ...
Gold Coast Ruling
Tripadvisor likes all sorts of people of all types to do ratings and write reviews. The more reviews, the better. I think it might be the hotel who would not like them to rate or review the hotel. Similarly, the Directors and organisers do not seem to mind the randomness ...
