about me

Frequent Australian Open Bridge team representative. I also enjoy writing and teaching aspects of bridge.

Author of "Battling the Best", IBPA Book of the year 2017.

ERICHSEN Wins Jacoby Swiss
Congrats Tony. Spectacular achievement.
More Memphis Mishappenings
If the bids were in tempo by North, I doubt if South would pass. Seems like a normal score adjustment to me.
How do you rule?
Adjust the score to -490, give EW a procedural penalty and give South a smack on the head !
Format for National Team Trials
