about me

I just love bridge, which I have done ever since my grandparents taught me the game when I was 8. Today I run a bridge magazine, Bridge in Norway, write a daily bridge column in a newspaper, and play for Norway and professionally in the best events around the world. I also have a wife who is a fine bridge player, and this year our son attended his second junior camp at the age of 9. It will be interesting to see how long we can keep our baby daughter away from this addictive and beautiful game.

Solution to High-Level Defense Problem
Trusting my intuition has always been an important part of my game. Sure, I am not always right, but I am far more willing to play against the odds than against my gut feel. Maybe I'm just lucky.
GIB, Schmib
Of course, Kurt, if you give GIB a (more or less) double dummy problem no human can beat it. Michael's problem shows that there are a lot more to bridge than just putting in general data and think GIB or whatever program will solve it perfectly. And humans normally ...
GIB, Schmib
So it seems fair to say that humans are still ahead for this kind of problem.
GIB, Schmib
Hi Kurt. When you do the numbers based on the actual bidding and the defense, you should put in that West has exactly six spades (all vul) plus the ace of clubs (would probably not overcall with six spades and nothing else). What does GIB say now?

Hi João. In sports, when you are found with an illegal substance in your body, the burden of proof is on you. WADA doesn't have to prove that you took this substance or did it in order to cheat through doping. I think we need a similar approach in ...
GIB, Schmib
I was South at the other table, opened 1 C, Gawrys overcalled 2 S (weak, but not crazy), my partner Lindqvist bid 3 H, pass from Klukowski and 3NT from me which ended the auction. West lead the 6 of spades (4th highest). I decided to play for one black ...
Where it all started for ZB
Bearing in mind the FS board signaling, was your comment ironic, Gonzalo? The club lead wouldn't be many experts' choice, and if I saw a few of these leads (hitting your partner's strength and hardly ever missing the target on blind leads) I would become very suspicious.

To Maclej. First of all I would like to say that I don't believe in any conspiracy theory regarding the EBL DC decicion. They probably handled the case as thorough and correct as they could, but didn't agree with the prosecution team that the evidence was strong enough ...

Randy. I used to trust people, especially bridge players. The 99 % of bridge players who love the game and try their best in every aspect of it, won't come flooding with accusations unless they really feel cheated. I don't want to submit to the 1 % who try to ...

Hi Mike. You should have been in Monte Carlo for the Cavendish. As Zia said in his speech, it was a tournament played in a very friendly atmosphere. Hardly any director calls, nobody seemed to be bothered to look at convention cards and full disclosure was given upon request. Played ...
