about me

I have won many pairs competitions, many swiss teams events including the National Swiss teams on two or three occasions, The Spring foursomes and represented Great Britain and Wales.  Many of these were professional engagements. I was secretary of the LCCBA for while when Richard Fleet was chairman and we ran a very successful congress at Country Hall.  I was also a bridge teacher for many years and together with my wife Jane Preddy ran the West of England Bridge club.  For many reasons these days I no longer play for real but have at the moment regular games on BBO. My basic bridge education was courtesy of Joe Amsbury, the Sharples twins and Jack Marx.  Watching John Collins was very educational,  My wife was a long term friend of Terence Reese who was certainly one of the finest players who ever lived regardless of your views about Beunos Aries.

The last comment is totally ridiculous as they have not bid already. They will not be bidding anytime now lol. The previous point has a little merit but not much--it will be more likely to create problems if you alert rather than not. If I had my way I would ...
Jump Shift Question
Why should I ? I would have an agreement anyway.

It depends upon your agreement and of course system. As did 3 but the opps will not be damaged whatsoever.

He knows better than to spring that on me.
I love to play - as long as no one has to pay
I was discussing this with Alan Hiron some years ago and he was telling me how lucrative the syndicated bridge columns were in the States. He told me that Goren had nor written a thing in years but his column endured even though he had had a stroke and was ...

I had to have lunch with Ortiz-Patino regarding an issue to do with the rejection of Reese as captain of the British team. He made the remark I have a golden rule if its my gold I make the rules.
