As a player, Andrew won the world Junior Championships in 1989, the European Championships in 1991, and the list of tournament successes during and since is too long to list. He won the Silver Medal in the 2004 World Individual, heartbreakingly moving out of Gold on the very last deal (but that's another story...).
As a writer, Andrew began in the early Nineties writing for the Oldie, the Spectator and the Express on Sunday, and has now been writing for Country Life for nearly 20 years and Money Week for nearly ten. He is most famous, however, for his daily column in The Times. His clarity of style has seen him become universally acclaimed, and he is the author of Common Mistakes and How to Avoid Them, Need to know? Bridge, Bridge Secrets, What Should Have Happened, A Pack of Dos and Don'ts plus 15 books in his hugely popular Bridge Lesson Book series, his latest being Duplicate Pairs Tactics.
Andrew's teaching is also legendary. Entertaining, simple, brilliant...his teaching has been described as this and much more over the years. Having constructed all the courses taught at ARBC and constantly fine-tuned them, Andrew has ensured a most rewarding - and very feasible - passage for the complete beginner on their path to achieving what they wish from Bridge; whether it be an accomplished Duplicate player or a happy social player.
When not Bridging, Andrew loves to ride his mountain bike. He lives in North Barnes with his wife Lorna and two daughters, Hannah and Mimi.
