about me

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

\n

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.

\n

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.

\n

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

\n

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

\n

I sometimes direct at clubs.

\n

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.

\n

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.

\n

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.

\n

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.

James, may I make a suggestion? In your introduction mention your sources, thank them, and make a small donation to Wikipedia. Finally, set yourself up as an editor on Wiki (takes about 10 mins) and contribute 20 edits. All of that will take you about an hour (delighted to help ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
There are many excellent bridge authors: Guy Ramsey (who was a household name as a journalist and novelist); Maurice Harrison-Gray (who wrote novels under a pen name); Jeremy Flint (Tiger Bridge is a great read); the prolific David Bird; Michael Courtney's book and tales, many of the extremely talented ...
Pop History: The Hating Game (Murray-Kehela, The Canadian Magazine, December 7, 1974, by Alan Edmonds)
Interesting to note that Penn and Teller are, by their own accounts, not good friends and never were. see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penn_%26_Teller scroll to "Off stage relationship"
Pop History: The Hating Game (Murray-Kehela, The Canadian Magazine, December 7, 1974, by Alan Edmonds)
I am in the process of obtaining permission to put on YouTube the 1983 TV series called Master Bridge. The hosts were Nicola Smith and Sami Kehela. At the end of each episode the hosts interview one of the 8 participants. I hope to post an article on it once ...

ED - just to set you straight on a point of information - I did get payment (what I was due in the first place, so to speak), and costs. The sums were modest. There were no damages (because doesn't apply).
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
Barry: I am not saying this to be facetious, but are you saying (a) that if you think if an unlawful act has taken place, and the lay person doesn't know what/if financial damage has taken place, then "its ok"? OR (b) are you saying that you believe ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
English was my second language for a long time, and poaching was one of the later words I learned. I used to teach English as a foreign language, so I am speaking from my personal experiences.
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
And I bet you many of them would not know what the word "poached" meant, unless they saw it on a breakfast menu.

Dominic: are you aware that Mark Horton is, apparently, a former "lawyer"? [note that in England, Solicitor is the protected title. Lawyer in English English is not the same as in American English]. What do you think of a former lawyer behaving as reported by Michael Clark? Also, are you ...
