about me

I've won over 50 National Championships and usually play in the Australian Open team (2019, 2017, 2016, 2014 etc). I'm a Sydney bridge pro who plays, directs and teaches bridge. Perhaps my best recent result was 4th with Adam Wildavsky in the Platinum Pairs in Kansas City in March 2017.

John McAllister's bidding problem: AJT Axxx KJxx Kx

Confused old man
At the club where I direct, Mary Hogg went on a winning streak soon after her 100th birthday. I asked her if there was a reason why she had started coming first so often now that she was 100 years old. "Of course there is a connection, Peter," Mary replied ...
What is the meaning of demonstrably?
Thank you Andy for the sanity. And thank you to Richard P for the levity.
Peter Gill's bidding problem: A6 AT8 KJ T96542
The hand occurred in one of Kate McCallum's training sessions. The traditional expert approach might be to pass, as the voting suggests, but the bidders are a very strong group of players. Upsides of 2C include: - if partner can scrape up a 2H bid over 2C, 4H could make ...

Peter Gill's bidding problem: KJT5 93 85 KJT95
At the Australian Nationals last week, Kate McCallum had the South cards but the explanation of 3C was that it was natural and forcing. Under those circumstances, she settled for 3S and sold out to 4H. When the correct explanation was determined by a Director to be the Bergen Raise ...

The full hand is at http://www.bridgeaustralia.org/showtraveller.asp?id=34303&board=31&headeventid=1859. The hand is also in the Bridgewinners article The Wait is Over by Nick Fahrer. If you bid 5H and they bid 6C or 6D, do you trust partner to make the decision ...
