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 qualified for the U16 World Championships next year. It will be interesting to see how long we can keep our daughter (now three) away from this addictive and beautiful game.

EBL will disallow Fantoni and Nunes
Most people want justice to be served. It strikes me how little the lawyers have contributed to that when it comes to cheating in bridge. That goes for the lawyers of the known cheats, but also for the lawyers calling the shots at the WBF.
EBL will disallow Fantoni and Nunes
Since the Fall of 2015 I think the EBL has been credible in their battle against cheating. They have put in a lot of effort and money for justice to be served, but unfortunately fell short in CAS where there was a total lack of bridge knowledge. I am happy ...
Public statement from bridgegod.com and myself
A proper apology should rather come from the cheats and people enabling them to play before they have served their time. And take a hike with their lawyers and law suit threats! I see no need to apologise for sharing your common feelings on this subject, Gonzalo.
Public statement from bridgegod.com and myself
On certain areas you need to cooperate and unite to make progress. For bridge, cheating is a disease, no matter if other players, organizers or federations accept it or go by the flow. If it's a private club, so be it, but if it's organized bridge under a ...
Public statement from bridgegod.com and myself
David Burn. Please explain how you think it should work when the EBU convicts someone for cheating and ban him for say four years; should this individual be able to go off to Norway and participate in events here? (And if he is then banned in Norway, just head for ...
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
I guess this is the risk you run when you leave bridge decisions to non-bridge players. Unfortunately it's too demanding, both work wise and money wise, for the EBL and other bridge organizations to win these legal battles against cheats who never seem to give in. We have to ...
In the Well: Dennis Bilde
Hi Dennis. Please stop your annoying habit of beating me! As if the 2012 Silodor Open Pairs wasn't bad enough, this POY was cruel! Congrats on a terrific showing in 2017 - and thanks for being such a great ambassador for bridge and how the game should be played. One ...
Showing the Jack of Spades
Michael. I think it is up to each and one of us to draw our own conclusions based on the material we have in front of us. You might have your "standards" for what it takes to convince you about cheating, which seem to me as something which would hold ...
Showing the Four of Spades
It's well and dandy when there is enough data for the statisticians to say it's one in a million or one in a billion that a player/pair wasn't cheating. It's ludicrous for the game of bridge to keep such a threshold before action can be ...
Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
Christopher and Donald. Helness was not part of any of the teams (two teams from the same club) which turned in a match result of a match they hadn't played. All the players involved (meaning all the players in both teams) got a one year suspension from bridge. Three ...
