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.

Using two bidding systems according to vulnerability
We played against China in the Yeh Cup today. The Chinese pair were playing Precision not vul and Standard when vul.
Eric Leong's lead problem: 5 KJ9765 Q32 982
D2 was the winner. Partner had AK of diamonds to cash against us.
Double Standards
Bd 28 - if I have to adjust the score, I think I need to poll to see how the bidding would go, to see how many pairs would reach 6H. Am I meant to do this? So I need to know what agreement NS would play if 3S was prealerted ...
Double Standards
I want to imagine I was the Director on Bds 26 and 28. From Aaron Silverstein's comments in this thread and from Michael Kopera's links, I can figure out some of it, but I want to imagine how I would approach this with the limited facts we have ...
Terrible Tempo
The countries where I'm pretty sure we played without Stop Cards in 2017 and 2018 were New Zealand (abandoned them recently), Poland (Slawa), Bulgaria I think (Albena), South Africa, Austria, France, South Korea and also WBF and Asian events. But I did write "as far as I know". That ...
Once accused for cheating then I got cheated
That particular Pairs Final was complicated by the directors putting out the wrong movement guides, resulting in a very long delay in the middle of the first session while it was decided whether to replay boards or not. IIRC that did not affect the total number of boards played.
Once accused for cheating then I got cheated
Michael, you say that South would have delayed the tray movement if he had the opportunity. I'm fairly sure that in 1998, that would have been illegal, so South would not have done so. I think It was only after 1998 that, with Brad Moss's urgings, the concept ...
Is there a city more active in bridge, right now, from Athens, Greece?
Sydney has a lot of bridge clubs - 53 registered clubs which give Masterpoints and some unregistered clubs. Some of those clubs have 20 to 30 tables on many days of the week. So there are probably over 200 tables of duplicate bridge in Sydney on most days, perhaps 300, but ...
My Turn to Speak
Samuel - I think you misread the section about termination without cause.
Terrible Tempo
My poll of players here in Memphis started today. So far, the majority were unaware of the rule. The reason for Peg's observations about the rule are therefore rather obvious. Players simply cannot comply with a rule of which they are unaware. In my polling so far, one of ...
