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.

Hi Josef. Thanks for contributing to the discussion. When you realise that a game is infected by cheating, you have two choices as I see it: 1) You start cheating and utterly ruin the game or 2) You start working to save the game. Unfortunately when many choose 1), competition ...

The ACBL is one of the few bridge organizations which has had a recording system at all. Unfortunately it has been working badly for several years, but with Robb Gordon as the new National recorder I have hopes that it's moving in the right direction. Sure, I would have ...
The Next Step
Both. TDs are very good at law enforcement, but many players have a better understanding of the bigger picture.

Hi Les. I can assure you that I didn't have our encounter in mind writing this article ;-). We all make "mistakes" in this department; breaking tempo when we really shouldn't. As an experienced partnership (speaking for Espen and myself) it doesn't take many fractions of a second ...
The Next Step
I feel there are too many of these "fact-finding missions" instead of addressing the real problem at hand. Maybe mandatory reports from the directors about conduct and ethics could scare some of the perpetrators?
The Next Step
Thanks for examplifying, Chris.

BIT is part of the game as thinking is the essence of bridge. The problem is when BIT becomes an integrated part of a pair's repertoire - and they are willing to take advantage of it. This summer I have played both the European Championships in Ostend and the Summer ...
Superb Sportsmanship
Espen forgot the system (he thought we only had agreed 1m - 1NT - p - p - dbl as short in the other minor, while the actual sequence just showed cards). I was pretty sure that we (I do the editing and typing of it) had put the convention into our system file ...
Superb Sportsmanship
Many thanks for kind words, Peter. As Kit says I should have told you about (what I believed to be) our agreement of the double before the opening lead, even though my pull to 2D clearly indicated short clubs. At the table I guess I rationalised that I wasn't ...
