about me

I live and work in London, England. My profession is "Business Analyst" in the Broadcast and Advertising Industry.

\n

I compete in events in the UK, USA (about once every 7 nationals). Have played in festival and championships in many countries (25+) so I appreciate the need to adapt to the conditions of the contest, variations of regulations that apply to the event.

\n

I write a regular 2-3 page column for a UK title called Bridge, published by MrBridge. In the past i've written for 5 other titles.

\n

My current series of articles focus on bridge between 1925 and 1965.

\n

Am researching the life of S J Simon and Carmel Withers and would appreciate any input from people.

\n

I sometimes direct at clubs.

\n

A long time ago I read the laws of bridge. I re-read the parts that have changed and are important. I think it is important to know the rules (not the really obscure ones) and I also thing that it is great idea to follow them. This levels the playing field.

\n

I would like people to come to the table with a completed convention card. Sometimes I want to look for something without them knowing what I am trying to find out it. If I need details I ask.  The response "I don't have a card, just ask me and I will tell you", is just terrible.

\n

When I can improve on something or disagree with something, instead of ranting, I write to the authorities to ask them to reconsider the matter.

\n

Along with Andy Bowles, we warmly invite bridge players to participate in Online Barbu  (see www.barbu.co.uk ). If you are interested you will be in the good company of fellow bridge players.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How would you have acted?
Paul Barden: let's take another auction, where partner has psyched a call, which is not alertable. You know what the systemic bid means, and you also know it is a psyche (from your own hand). Your partner's call is not alertable. What will you write on that piece ...
Gold Cup final stages - controversial end to semi-final
Again, by talking to one of the players, the time monitor was an official of the organisation, who was there in an official capacity all weekend, representing the BGB. Very clearly, if the time monitor is called part way thru the match, they cannot have seen what is going on ...
Gold Cup final stages - controversial end to semi-final
To be fair to the TD and organisers, I understand (from one of the players in the match) that the tables were clearly marked with printed sheets indicating the home table for each team, and that the home table must be NS. This was made clear at the start, and ...
Gold Cup final stages - controversial end to semi-final
Richard: might you consider that it is the players and the captain who are responsible? small point, but worth making, I think.

Post 11. Captain Ewart Kempson - “The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth” Monday, 18th September 2017.
A thought about the possibility of needing to eventually state true age: perhaps he was entitled to a pension. And he wanted to get the pension at the age that was "true".
