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.

Musings on the ACBL National K/O
Donald - Most of the top 16 seeds in the Spingold play in the Alt Tournaments and/or the OCBL events. A few, including Nickell, played in the first Reynolds Double Knockout event. Then the Alt organisers seemed to get most of the top sponsors to go in their events, and ...

13,000 Table Online ACBL Regional
In the Hand Records part of the BBO website that Jim refers to, the default in Get My Hands is 2 days. If you change it to 3 weeks then the Month option will appear but I can get only 1 month right now, though BBO claim that 3 months ...
Convention Cards and online tournaments (mostly ACBL)
I’ve played in lots of ACBL duplicates. The automatic download of the CC that the pair is not playing is probably the most stupid thing on BBO. It happens in all the ACBL pairs duplicates I’ve played in, with an announcement by a Director at the start or ...
The World's most complete bridge player.
Jim, if Fox is playing against the person in the chicken coop, the person might have to move inside.
Bryan Howard's bidding problem: J7 AQJ2 AT63 852
Imps 3NT. Matchpoints 4H. Close decision,
Is this just too hard?
Those who play 1S pass 3H as an old-fashioned strong jump shift might well reach 6H. Dave Caprera has omitted the most important information - the percentage in 6H in the 1950 world open pairs final should be higher than in the 2020 world open pairs final.
Restarting Club Bridge
Written bidding (bidding slips) has been routine in Australia and nearby countries for about 40 years. Many clubs have bidding boxes too, but really they are a relic - many people here would say.
The ACBL Convention Charts Are Too Restrictive
Robert - if you private message your email address to me, I can email you Martin Reid and Peter Newell’s system. Patrick Carter manages Auckland Bridge Club so you might be able to get his system by contacting Auckland Bridge Club at https://www.akbc.co.nz/contact.html. I ...
