about me

I started playing bridge in 1976 when I went to Liverpool University.  I played tournament bridge until 1986, with the highlight being on the British team that came second in the European Junior Championships in 1982, partnering Richard Winter. Frequent BW contributor Barry Rigal was also on the team.

From 1986 until semi-retirement in 2010 I played virtually no bridge.  By now I had moved to the US. I started playing again at clubs in Atlanta until moving to Savannah in 2017. I am currently Treasurer of the member-owned Savannah Duplicate Bridge Club.

UI created by partner's question?
John - why is leading a diamond a procedural violation? Does it not depend on whether there are logical alternatives? I did not think there were, and the poll I ran before starting this thread had 44 votes for a diamond lead and zero for anything else when I wrote it ...
UI created by partner's question?
Thank you all for your comments. I was South. There was no director call at the time. The statements refer to post-game discussions with West, who also happens to be my most frequent partner. On the diamond lead, the contract went down 3 when declarer lost control. Double dummy, 4 ...

I should have remembered that Grattan was chair, seeing as we played at the same club.
UI created by partner's question?
Richard: it was the Polish captain, but yes, their players did not understand the Yorkshire language. It's only fair - we didn't understand their bidding: Forcing Pass. I do remember one hand that may have been in the trials where you were kibbitzing me. At that time you were ...
