about me

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

Author of "Battling the Best", IBPA Book of the year 2017.

Playing A and Q early in the play is resulting. Imagine a similar layout with the SK onside. Now A, Q, A, A, K , ruff, K, ruff, diamond! Will lose to some layouts but also pick up many - feels like the best play at this form of scoring.
