about me

I am a Professional Bridge player based just outside London. I spend most of my time playing with clients and teaching in a 1-to-1 environment, but do some group work too. I enjoy playing some of the bigger events with my regular partner, Peter, and would like to be a more regular attendee at the US Nationals, which I have found to be the best bridge experience on Earth!

United Kingdom

Range for Responder’s Splinter
I had a good rule in an occasional partnership with a top notch player - which was that splinters by responder denied a 5S response to RKCB... So couldn't have 2 keys and trump Q OR 3/4 keys. Perhaps this means things we had to Jacoby with hands like ...
Who Will Win the English Open Trials?
There are nine stanzas of 12 in each round robin - so we play 4-5-5-4 in that order over 4 days hence one session of 36 today and tomorrow (the 5 stanza days)
When will the WBF post details for Orlando?
I have to agree - not knowing the exact schedule when the event is less than a year away doesn't make sense to me - people have to make flight reservations, hotel bookings and organise teams and partners - It really is surprising there isn't a cut off for schedule to ...
Dennis Bilde is 2017 Player of the Year
Well done Bildey!
How do you play the spades?
Why can you afford two losers unless I am missing something? Doesn't two losers in spades mean we need to find the club 10 to ditch the hearts? Spose there is a possible H/C aqueeze too but...
Alert the Polish Club sequence 1!C-1!D-1!H ?
April fool!! Oh wait it's November ;)
Too good to sign off?
I've abstained because I want to bid 2D, which in my view should be like 2D over a drury type 2C bid - so saying I am not ashamed of my overcall and game is a possibility. If partner bids 2H I will let it go.
Gold Cup
I am afraid the assumption that "pairs sitting the same way would be immediately discovered" by BBO coverage is incorrect. In 2010 England and Sweden sat the same way in a European Championships - wearing team uniform and on BBO and nothing was discovered until scoring up. Not that I am ...
ATB - No Play Slam
To be honest I don;t even agree it's unlikely. Can give plenty of hands for 3S to produce a cold or with the odds slam. Of course can produce some hands which will bid a poor or even no play slam too...
ATB - No Play Slam
I'm not arguing that point, interested to see what people said. Only arguing with your comment that you can't imagine a slam opposite an overcall!
