about me

Frequent Australian Open Bridge team representative. I also enjoy writing and teaching aspects of bridge.

I am curious about why, in bridge, many talk the talk but very few walk the walk. 

I am working through a book on the 2014 Reisinger to be published by BridgeWinners.

We expect it to be out very soon.

For Those Interested in AI and Bridge
I think we ought to view this opening bid structure as an early iteration of the optimal design (for a computer program). Especially when they are looking at uncontested auctions only.
For Those Interested in AI and Bridge
Fascinating. Thanks for sharing. I am not a techie in the space but the key takeaway for me is: They have designed a program that learns bidding strategy without any programmed human knowledge. As a parallel story, chess featured decades of improvement through coding human knowledge into computer systems. This ...
