about me

Believer in Paul Marston's ideologies. My hobby is playing against HUMs (high five to all the NZ, Aussie and Polish bridge players for keeping the game fun and lively). Love to play various systems after reading full system notes.

Favorite Quote from Paul Marston from his Moscito 2005 write-up

"If you don’t want to play bridge like this, you don’t belong in open competition. One day a leader with vision and courage will come along and he or she will tear down all this senseless red tape. No more mid chart, no more brown sticker, no more green systems, no more HUM systems, etc – just bridge. Thegame will flourish and we will remember these red tape days in much the same way that we remember Communism. Maybe that’s a bit tongue in cheek but I long for the time when we can try to solve the bridge puzzle with only the laws of the game to concern us. Sadly, I am not holding my breath. Right now there is little resistance to the WBF/ ACBL line. This is because most players are happy to choose their methods from the official list. The mood will only change when a high profile body of players decides to strive for something better."

How A Junior Would Teach Bidding
Different strokes for different folks. I am a junior player too. I first saw the game when I was a freshman in 2011. Somehow it appealed to me and I looked up the rules online. Next four days, I only learnt bidding. 10 pages of system notes (only bids and ...
