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?

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 ...

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 ...

I have added some more information to my profile.
UI created by partner's question?
None of the players would be viewed as experts by this community, but all are among the top players in the club (this was a club game), playing in regular partnerships and also have regular partnerships with at least one of their opponents.
UI created by partner's question?
Curious as to whether 3D was showing diamonds or not and didn't think about there being inappropriate times to ask. Definitely not trying to indicate a desire for a diamond lead.
UI created by partner's question?
I don't know why it wasn't alerted. I don't know that I have ever seen this type of bid (4th suit in a 2/1 sequence) alerted, although that doesn't mean it shouldn't be.
Andy Eastwood's lead problem: AQ4 63 Q7653 Q76
I do not see any edit buttons - where are they? I have Share and Print and Facebook and Twitter. I only see the same buttons and options as I see on other people's polls.
Andy Eastwood's lead problem: AQ4 63 Q7653 Q76
I did enter the auction. Not sure why it didn't show. I will try again. Update: the post was also showing in draft state, including the auction, so I published that and the auction appeared the second time. Is there any way I can lock or delete this one?
