Bridge

Bridge is, in my humble opinion, one of the most interesting (card)games out there. It keeps me busy for several hours a week, either because I'm playing or reading about it. I've started to play bridge in march 2003 and am eager to learn as much about it as I possibly can. Learning by doing seems the best approach but that is not always easy as I also have many other things to do.

Bidding

A while ago, I've tried to organize my thoughts on bidding in the form of a small booklet I've dubbed the system HeX. Older versions of this booklet can be found here (Biedermeyer-like), here (with 12-14 NT), and here (with new 2-level openings and other gadgets).

Since I wrote the above mentioned booklet, I've started a new partnership with Tom Olthof. We've set up a new system with one guilding principle: "back to basic". Notes on that system can be foud here

Books

I've collected quite a few books on bridge in the last few years. I've read most of them cover to cover. Some of them are so good that I've read them several times already. Some books, however, are still a `work in progress'. I also have a wishlist with books that I would like to have/read. If you happend to have one of these and wish to part with it, please let me know :-)
