about me

I have been teaching bridge for more than 40 years. Perhaps best known as the BBO vugraph co-ordinator for 10 years (I retired in 2012), but I am still a frequent (voice) commentator. In 2011, I received the Alan Truscott Memorial Award.

Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is often interchanged or confused with Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), but GMT is a time *zone* and UTC is a time *standard*. Read more about it here: https://www.timeanddate.com/time/gmt-utc-time.html

David, Traian tells me that there will only be video coverage of 16 tables. If this is true, I don't understand why the organisers have added 16 (tables). Big is not always the same as great. However, maybe Traian will be pleasantly surprised when he arrives in Wuhan, so ...
