Hi, my name is John McAllister. I have spent the past six years playing bridge all around the world. My goal is to win a world championship. Doing so requires getting into the minds of the world’s best players.
I can not think of a better, more fun way to do so, than to interview great bridge players and share their insights in podcast format.
EPISODE 35: Andrew Robson
Andrew Robson is a giant, in both height and bridge; he is 6 feet 6 inches tall and has won a slew of titles, including back to back Reisingers in 1998 and 1999. On top of all his bridge accolades, he has met the Queen of England, received the prestigious “Other Buggers’ Efforts” award, and survived a 100 foot fall.
If you want to learn more about Andrew and his bridge adventures, there is a great page on his website called Andrew’s Life in Bridge, where I learned many of the stories I asked Andrew about today.
COVID finally got Andrew to start presenting a daily video series, where I’ve learned a lot of card play nuances in the advanced section https://andrewrobsonbridgecast.com,
