about me

I'm based near London, England and fit as much bridge as I can round my day job working in corporate treasury. I'm also vice-chairman of the EBU Laws & Ethics Committee. I play a complex system but find defence and declarer play more interesting than 'assign the blame' bidding problems.

United Kingdom

Faulty BBO
Your post said "More computing power for more clients is nowadays so easy to achieve" which implies you know how to solve the problem

Is anyone else having problems with the deal source hand generator on BBO?
There are various sites and software that will generate hands according to criteria. I am not aware of anyone other than BBO that lets you bid 'live' rather than each having a hand and bidding them by phone/email or whatever
Coast Conduct
I've played a fair amount of bridge round much of the world (including the Gold Coast teams) excluding the US. I agree with everything Roger Lee said, but in particular this sort of behaviour - the moaning and comments at the table during or immediately after the hand - I have ...
The Unlucky Expert
