about me

I just love bridge, which I have done ever since my grandparents taught me the game when I was 8. Today I run a bridge magazine, Bridge in Norway, write a bridge column in a newspaper three days a week, and play for Norway and professionally in the best events around the world. I also have a wife who is a fine bridge player, and this year our son won the U16 European Pairs Championships! It will be interesting to see how long we can keep our daughter (now four) away from this addictive and beautiful game.

Congrats on a stellar performance!
A "strong" 2C ruling in SB's favour

Fu and Li Win Women's Pairs
Congrats! It's great to see all the Chinese players coming both to NABC's and other international events. Some of the junior events would hardly have had entries except for a big Chinese contingent. I would also recommend their tournaments and bridge festivals; very well run and with better ...

Sure. So change the regulations, but without being a secretary bird.
A "strong" 2C ruling in SB's favour
My feeling is that secretary birds aren't about proper disclosure, but getting something for nothing. They ruin the enjoyment of the game.

Secretary birds go home.
Peeking
Further down in the thread there seems to be information that it was dummy looking at the hand of the opening leader. Even though it’s not allowed to do so, it’s a big difference from a cheating point of view. If that was the case, I would think ...
Peeking
Disqualify for sure, and report the incident to the bridge organization where the competition was played. Hopefully it would result in a ban for the peeking player. This is cheating.
Thank you Zia!
Thanks for sharing this incredible and warm story, Mariusz. You truly deserve the medal - what you did for bridge was golden. Zia has been my idol ever since I read «Roll over, Houdini» some 30 years ago, and grew even a few inches more after this beautiful gesture.
Crunch Time
This battle is too important not to fight. Sure, the «game» may seem rigged in favor of the cheats because of CAS, but if we don’t play we can’t win. Don’t let the cheats, the lawyers and the financial risk keep holding this game hostage. It’s ...
