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 ). If you are interested you will be in the good company of fellow bridge players.

Over My Shoulder events this week: Tue 31 Mar, and Thu 2 Apr
Martin, for the first one, please look here the later ones will be on that same YouTube channel, so you may wish to subscribe. It takes me about 2.5 hours per video to edit, process, upload onto YouTube, so today's event may ...
Only Connect Series 15 Final
I have watched the team at every stage. I predict some successful careers as pro quizzers. They are a highly entertaining team to watch.
"over the shoulder" realtime self-commentary of some boards - Today at 5:30 EST (29 march)
I think we had about 45 online today, so thank you very much to the specs. The real time questions and the comments made it interesting. Zach was a brilliant commentator, and we think the format works really well. More of these events in the coming days. Comments and suggestions ...
"over the shoulder" realtime self-commentary of some boards - Today at 5:30 EST (29 march)
When I prototyped my idea in the late 1990, both of the partnerships had a big argument "how could you think like that, you are crazy?" I have it all on video, but did not take it further then. Now with time on my hands, I can do more. The ...
The bridge genius John Collings (1933-2005)
I think if they was any bad behaviour, they would not have ended up in 7 doubled, against a small slam.

Martin, I will definitely record this next one. So watch this space. I did not record the first one (various minor reasons).
20 volunteers needed today at 2:25pm eastern (6:25pm UK time) - technology/join test
Thank you all, it sent really well, much more smoothly than expected. You will see more of these events (but for real, rather than test). We had about 50 specs, with plenty of conversation. Especially grateful to Dessi Malakova and Petar Ivanov for helping out at the last moment. They ...

Thank you to those who have written to me, I still need more helpers.
Availability of saved hands on BBO for teaching
Perhaps you could look at the free BridgeMaster level 1 deals. They are on BBO.
Norman, there are many way of having group meetings, with sound and video too. So for example, you can have one meeting with 4 players at your table (and you play via BBO or any of the other three online methods). You can all see and hear each other, doesn ...
