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.

#ZEROTOLERANCE Open Barcelona 2019
United we stand, divided we fall. Let's follow the examples of Erik, Morten, Maria and James so that bridge organizations never again forget how important a clean game is to most of their members. If bridge federations can't keep Fantoni, Nunes and other cheats in denial away from ...
Richie Schwartz, R.I.P.
I met Richie some 20 years ago during a Cavendish in Las Vegas. He was a very interesting guy, always keen to discuss various bridge topics. As a sponsor and team mate he was superb, encouraging us to back our judgment and handling bad results and losses very well. After ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
In bridge you make a vast number of decisions. Many decisions are automated and based on experience - and you don't always anticipate the problem you are actually facing. When the opponents bid to a grand slam, and even more so when it's 7 NT, you don't expect ...
CAVENDISH 2019 - Time to register
To Jean-Charles. People ask because people care. Not everyone is comfortable with CAS making crucial decisions for bridge. I have played in the Cavendish 14 times and would be keen on knowing if Fantoni and/or Nunes might get an invite for the 2019 edition. If I remember correctly, Fisher-Schwartz ...
Congratulations to Monaco! Now named official 'winners' of the 2014 European Championships
Embarassing for everyone involved in bridge.
Marion, thanks for expressing what so many bridge players around the world are feeling. United we stand. When I hear that Fantunes get a warm welcome in Italy, and I read Avon Wilsmore's revelations about the Blue Team, there seems to be a deep cultural gap. Unless we can ...
The Next Step
It seems like we are going in circles Andy, Michael, Ron et al., and I am going to close mine with a story I heard in Atlanta a few weeks ago. I think it says a bit about a "rules are everything" approach. This is how I remember it: The ...
The Next Step
And for the record, Andy, Michael, Ron et al.: This isn't about "threat", "intimidation" and "bullying". It's about trying to secure fair play. I'm pretty sure all players at the table both agree and agreed how we are/were supposed to play in tempo-sensitive situations. From time ...
The Next Step
Andy. I think out-of-tempo signalling happens quite frequently. Was the defense affected by this, or would the same defense have been found without the huddle? Sometimes it's impossible to tell and normally I give my opponents the benefit of the doubt and move on. The same goes for BIT ...
The Next Step
Bobby Wolff has difficulties getting access to his Bridgewinners account, and has asked me to post this comment for him: It is with no great surprise, at least to me, that Boye, in his fervent desire to make competitive high-level bridge the best it can be, has reached out to ...
