about me

I live and work in London, England. My profession is "Business Analyst" in the Broadcast and Advertising Industry.

I compete in events in the UK, USA (about once every 7 nationals). Have played in festival and championships in many countries (25+) so I appreciate the need to adapt to the conditions of the contest, variations of regulations that apply to the event.

I write a regular 2-3 page column for a UK title called Bridge, published by MrBridge. In the past i've written for 5 other titles.

My current series of articles focus on bridge between 1925 and 1965.

Am researching the life of S J Simon and Carmel Withers and would appreciate any input from people.

I sometimes direct at clubs.

A long time ago I read the laws of bridge. I re-read the parts that have changed and are important. I think it is important to know the rules (not the really obscure ones) and I also thing that it is great idea to follow them. This levels the playing field.

I would like people to come to the table with a completed convention card. Sometimes I want to look for something without them knowing what I am trying to find out it. If I need details I ask.  The response "I don't have a card, just ask me and I will tell you", is just terrible.

When I can improve on something or disagree with something, instead of ranting, I write to the authorities to ask them to reconsider the matter.

Along with Andy Bowles, we warmly invite bridge players to participate in Online Barbu  (see www.barbu.co.uk ). If you are interested you will be in the good company of fellow bridge players.

The Curious Case of Schneider-Reithoffer v Mollo
in his autiobiog CONFESSIONS OF AN ADDICT there are some amusing and detailed references to illegal behaviour, but from memory, all about rubber bridge.
The Curious Case of Schneider-Reithoffer v Mollo
I heard he used to like sitting north on table 1. This way he would not delay the duplicate if he was waiting to be served at the bar. He could just pass on the message "tell them I open 1 spade".
-590: assign the blame
I would like to piggyback a small poll please. Had West thought before bidding 4 Hearts. And, had East not doubled the final contract. Would an AC determine that (1) UI suggested that pass suggested, and (2) doubling was a logical alternative (albeit a poor call)? If you think the ...

Maddison Square Gardens - unusual bridge event
I have been sent a lovely photo of the special event. It was against a French team. Dec 23, 1935, in The New Scotsman, a report described the match : the Four Aces v The Quatre Jacques. Also, the Illustrated London News on 11 Jan 1936 had a story. The last ...

S. J. Simon and economics
More on the LSE: Ok, so I was not quite right .... He started a journalism course at LSE in October 1927. He planned to complete it in July 1929. I will contact LSE to find out. The evidence I am looking it is application forms and letters from his solicitor ...
