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.

Steve, would you have raised hearts, both green, with a 3442 Yarborough? South had 752 9874 9765 54
How to play this grand slam?
The Vienna Coup line was the winning one when North was dealt 0535 including K and Q. Australia's Sartaj Hans played for clubs to break and went one down. Funnily enough, Australia gained 5 IMPs because CHK at the other table landed in the less elegant contract of 6 ...
