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!

Finding An Odds-On 7C Grand
Well it is pretty decent no? On a trump lead it is cold if trumps 2-2. If they are 3-1 depending which hand shows out you might still be able to safely navigate two dimond ruffs. If you can't, then you need diamonds 3-3 or a H hook with ...
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 ...
