about me

Two times World Champion: 1990 at age 22, Rosenblum Cup in Geneva and 1993 juniors teams.

I am looking for a sponsor for the pair events at the Red Sea festival this november in Eilat / Israel. 


Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Both of us very young and playing with my cousin Erik we finished last in a tournament, next year we won it. I kept the price - an ugly suitcase as long as it broke.
Bridge Accomplishments
Two times world champion, Rosenblum 1990 and Juniors 1993.
Regular Bridge Partners
Last five years Jörg Fritsche. Just started a new partnership with Paul Grünke.
Member of Bridge Club(s)
Favorite Tournaments
If Bridge is presented nicely and with style, than I love every tournament.
Favorite Conventions
None, but no fan of Ghestem 2-suiters, most forget what 3 clubs should mean.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Bidding shoes on or?...
I like to put the ball to partner when I'm not shure I can score a homerun myself. So I would bid 3D letting partner know D queen is a great card and hard values outside is what I need.
Spare a thought for the Poles competing 4-handed
I do not know when the WBF and / or the EBL decided to reduce the number of boards per day. Of course playing on this level can't be compared with our local duplicate at the bridgeclub. We played In Dublin 2012 with 20 boards per match. In Opatija 2014 ...
Roland Rohowsky's bidding problem: 75 K KJT8654 654
IMO every bid now should have a defined meaning: 3spades = I do not like hearts but I like my hand for 3NT. 3NT a rare bid, but possible. 4 clubs = I do like hearts a little bit (xx or stiff honor). 4 diamonds = sorry for opening partner, be warned to ...
Itzik Ezra's bidding problem: AQ43 Q762 JT4 AT
2 spades is my choice. Are we happy with doubling them with our 9+ cards in diamonds? No, so I bid what is before my nose and see what comes next.
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: A95 KJ94 --- Q98542
Clear vote for 2NT. My grandma often said: show what you have and let the clever ones love their clever bids.
Sven Pride's bidding problem: AT84 AKJ6 9 QJ53
Double. I have a nice hand for spades and clubs. If partners bids 2 diamonds so be it. I hate 1NT with minimum and no tricks and partner raising me to 3NT because he loves his long diamonds.
Yuan Shen's bidding problem: KQJ94 A4 T2 AQ75
Double, happy to have it available.
Richard Brown's bidding problem: AT3 --- J9432 AKQ73
4hearts, showing my void. Do we pass 3NT when we bid 3spades now?
Felix Shen's bidding problem: A AQ862 AT984 62
4spades. 3 diamonds should be a hand directing to diamonds not NT (else bid 2 spades). I show my shortness and leave the rest to partner.
Henry Bethe's bidding problem: AKQ76 JT8 AKT54 ---
3 diamonds. I do not like to commit us to hearts with only 8 trumps. Over 3NT I jump to 5 hearts asking about good trumps and on bad days this will go down.
