about me

I'm based near London, England and fit as much bridge as I can round my day job working in corporate treasury. I'm also vice-chairman of the EBU Laws & Ethics Committee. I play a complex system but find defence and declarer play more interesting than 'assign the blame' bidding problems.

United Kingdom

“No True Expert Pair Plays [Insert Convention or Treatment Here]...”
I play 1 - 3M as a splinter I am not sure what you mean about (3x)-3NT. Do you mean you can't have an 18-count? I've never seen that.
“No True Expert Pair Plays [Insert Convention or Treatment Here]...”
I've got a stop, do you have a running suit?
“No True Expert Pair Plays [Insert Convention or Treatment Here]...”
Odd discouraging, even suit preference. Reverse Dodds is known as "standard" in Italy
Polish Up Your Bridge 4: a quick decision
I don't understand why you believe the hearts are 3-4. The play in the suit is equally consistent with KJxx - Q109
Coast Conduct
