about me

I've won over 50 National Championships and usually play in the Australian Open team (2020, 2019, 2017, 2016, 2014 etc). I'm a Sydney bridge pro who plays, directs and teaches bridge. My best recent results include 4th with Adam Wildavsky in the Platinum Pairs in Kansas City in March 2017, or 2nd by one imp in the 2019 Yeh Cup Pairs in Shanghai.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
Off topic .... This is only a rumour but ....... Someone told me in San Francisco that the WBF paid for six roaming photographers to take photos in Wuhan. If their airfares and the like were paid for, that seems very wasteful. I know we bridgewinners folk are meant to be critucising ...
Convention Cards in NABC+ events
Adam - in the 1990s I was on a subcommittee tasked with redesigning the local CC here in Sydney, along with Ron Klinger and two others. On the front of the CC, we added in the centre a PreAlert section. Of the things the opponents might need to know. Saves them ...

Ken - good point. My opinion is that the new Tournament Directors at American Nationals tend to be outstanding - is it OK to name a few of these excellent newer TDs?- John Worley, Melody Euler and Donna Lonbardini for example. Maybe that fits with your observation about club directors. It's ...

At a US Nationals about ten years ago, at my turn to play as declarer, I asked LHO if I could look at his Convention Card. I could see it in his top pocket. He replied "No". I asked again, and because I was pestering him, he called the TD ...

The ACBL at some Nationals puts warnings in Daily Bulletins about the requirement for two Convention Cards. So they do do something about it. The real question, as is often the question wrt ACBL, is: "Is the ACBL doing an effective thing about this issue?"
Convention Cards in NABC+ events

At the San Diego Nationals, we were playing against a famous pair who last week won one of America's biggest events. I (declarer) asked at about Trick 4 for their Convention Card. I was having difficulty counting the hand. I thought they led "attitude" but LHO seemed to have ...

When Liz Sylvester and I played bridge in Slawa and Zgorzelec in Poland last year, we filled in the small but comprehensive Polish Convention Card and followed the local regulations. There were about 200 Polish players, two Germans and two Aussies. We thought it was the best bridge ever. We ...
Hoffman v Coles - The Psych from Brd 19 Women's QF8 of 8 - 8/12/19 Australia
Marty - Australia does have a Psyche Register. Data does exist. I'm not sure how well it is maintained. North was not on the register st the time. I think the nature of South's hand makes it extremely likely that South just took a view to pass 2H, though ...
Hoffman v Coles - The Psych from Brd 19 Women's QF8 of 8 - 8/12/19 Australia
Mike, but there is a record. Australia has a Psyche Register. I think NS NOW have one psyche on the register.
