about me

I've won over 40 National Championships and usually play for Australia (2018, 2017, 2016, 2014 etc). I'm a Sydney bridge pro who plays, directs and teaches bridge. My best recent result was 4th with Adam Wildavsky in the Platinum Pairs in Kansas City in March 2017.

Bridge Winners Hawaiian Pipe Dream
Not legal here in Hawaii, but there was often a funny smell on the streets of Honolulu as I walked back to the Airbnb which I probably shouldn't have been staying at.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Excellent points about the poll. I like your post more than any other post on this topic. At the Providence Reisinger a few years ago, when I was sitting out I saw a Director doing a poll. The Director approached a group of players and polled two or three people ...
ZHANG Wins Keohane NA Swiss
We played against the EW pair in this team - they have a wonderful attitude to bridge, enjoying the game. They are a very happy pair and it is delightful that players from China who smile and enjoy bridge have won such a major event.
Director call in Honolulu
Did your LHO really ask about the 3H call when her partner was on lead? Or did your LHO ask this question (more legally) after her partner's lead was made, face down. I think that info might affect the answers to your questions.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Michael Rosenberg wrote an excellent chapter of a book on this topic many years ago.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion

Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
The ACBL screen regulations - about who calls the Director when - are different from the WBF’s. If you go to the ACBL site and check their regulations, you will see that there is no problem in this case with the timing and mode of the Director call.
Slow Play, a day behind the “ Flash”
Huub, yes it is insane. But alas it is also real. The real world is full of insane behaviour. Insane behaviour in the real world is a very important topic, which should be discussed more, so that we can head towards a solution to the never-ending insanity which you had ...
Slow Play, a day behind the “ Flash”
Normal human beings tend not to enforce rules if they tend to think the enforcement of such rules overall causes more negative outcomes than positive outcomes.
Open Honolulu Discussion Thread
Jonathan - the two session Pairs on Wednesday paid 20 Masterpoints when you wrote your post, but that has been changed to 37 now. I don't know why. Regarding ACBL membership, the last time I looked it up, it was about 145,000, perhaps ten years ago. 167,000 is ...
