about me

I'm just a pretty average club player in the UK.  However, I am Chairman of Woking Bridge Club in Surrey, UK, which is a friendly ethical club, so do join us if you fancy a game while visiting the area.

What should E play after partner leads AC and why
Perhaps West should have led the King for count.
ATB Matchpoint disaster
Me, too, but we play 2 as a negative free bid. So it is that or 3 fit-jump. I'd choose the fit-jump.
A defensive conundrum
Duck - like Skid Simon says.
Cuebid or natural?
Fit non-jump... Club suit and Diamond support to help partner decide what to do over 3.
Opening 1!D with 5clubs and 4diamonds
This happened to me last night! As dealer, I held 5 763 AKQ10 K10765 - and I didn't know what to do. The Clubs did not look rebidable, and I decided to pass as someone was bound to open a major, and I could join in later. In the event ...
