about me

I have won ma pairs competitions, many swiss teams events including the National Swiss teams on two or three occasions, The Spring foursomes and represented Great Britain and Wales.  Many of these were professional engagements. I was secretary of the LCCBA for while when Richard Fleet was chairman and we ran a very successful congress at Country Hall.  I was also a bridge teacher for many years and together with my wife Jane Preddy ran the West of England Bridge club.  For many reasons these days I no longer play for real but have at the moment regular games on BBO. My basic bridge education was courtesy of Joe Amsbury, the Sharples twins and Jack Marx.  Watching John Collins was very educational,  My wife was a long term friend of Terence Reese who was certainly one of the finest players who ever lived regardless of your views about Beunos Aries.

Cannot see what difference it makes over 3 even if they say say it shows 18 plus points--the case for 4 is exactly the same--unimpeachable. I might add I would be in a different position I would not bid 2 since it is ill advised on a ...
David Sackett's bidding problem: K75 KQ72 K43 JT2
Completely agree Martin. Alvin Roth is two points short of an opening bid here.
What's this double?
Yes a really good treatment.
Craig Biddle's bidding problem: J7 --- AK984 AK6532
I assume I bid 3 with an eye to 3nt. Otherwise I would have bid 4 last time.
Douglas Newlands's bidding problem: AK82 A3 J AK6432
I am not sure that partner has spades unless you think 5NT shows the minors. If 5 shows the ace and spades and a minor then its ok to bid 6 as a grand slam try. Misread sorry talking rubbish as usual.
Douglas Newlands's bidding problem: AK82 A3 J AK6432
I have thanks -thought partner bid 5.
Andrew Yeckel's bidding problem: 9832 A974 --- AJ542
I bid something other than what Michael was thinking of will a report be sent to my psychiatrist?
Are You Sure?
I totally agree with Richard Fleet. I usually agree at rubber bridge with whatever my partner wants even when I j have no clue what it is--they mostly do not notice.
Andrew Yeckel's bidding problem: A4 --- T987654 QT63
I agree with not raising I will try 4.
