about me

I just love bridge, which I have done ever since my grandparents taught me the game when I was 8. Today I run a bridge magazine, Bridge in Norway, write a bridge column in a newspaper three days a week, and play for Norway and professionally in the best events around the world. I also have a wife who is a fine bridge player, and this year our son qualified for the U16 World Championships next year. It will be interesting to see how long we can keep our daughter (now three) away from this addictive and beautiful game.

CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
I guess this is the risk you run when you leave bridge decisions to non-bridge players. Unfortunately it's too demanding, both work wise and money wise, for the EBL and other bridge organizations to win these legal battles against cheats who never seem to give in. We have to ...
In the Well: Dennis Bilde
Hi Dennis. Please stop your annoying habit of beating me! As if the 2012 Silodor Open Pairs wasn't bad enough, this POY was cruel! Congrats on a terrific showing in 2017 - and thanks for being such a great ambassador for bridge and how the game should be played. One ...
Showing the Jack of Spades
Michael. I think it is up to each and one of us to draw our own conclusions based on the material we have in front of us. You might have your "standards" for what it takes to convince you about cheating, which seem to me as something which would hold ...
Showing the Four of Spades
It's well and dandy when there is enough data for the statisticians to say it's one in a million or one in a billion that a player/pair wasn't cheating. It's ludicrous for the game of bridge to keep such a threshold before action can be ...
Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
Christopher and Donald. Helness was not part of any of the teams (two teams from the same club) which turned in a match result of a match they hadn't played. All the players involved (meaning all the players in both teams) got a one year suspension from bridge. Three ...
Grue-Moss Slam Bidding
Hi Julian. Thanks for airing your concerns. Hopefully it's just random events which people with better knowledge of statistics than me would be able to break down properly. If you look at the very last hand of the Europeans in Budapest in 2016, there was a grand slam on ...
Forgive and forget?
"The ethichs of an organization, the moral climate of an organization is established at the top, it's just that simple." (Norman Schwarzkopf.)
Forgive and forget?
Is it too much to expect the decision makers to represent the game and the players? Is it too much to expect that they realize the need for change? Would you believe that all the Americans voted for more of the same when WBF funding has been a hot potato ...
Playing in Tempo
For me this applies to UI sensitive bids and play. If you are planning a final bid or a decisive play on a hand, feel free to take your time (I do for sure!), but the beauty of it is that it only gives AI to the opponents that you ...
Illegal convention wins big IMPs
Absolutely, but holding my hand it could hardly be a solid major (and Sementa described it as a good 4 of a major opening). But what exactly does a good 4 of a major opening look like? And are you allowed to bend this a little bit third in hand ...
