One of the regular posters on BBF (wank) was part of the Wolfson team that went on to win the 2019 Vanderbilt. Link here

Well done, Alex. It'll be good to have you post some problems faced by you on BBF in the coming days & weeks.

thanks. i played well in the sf and qf. i made 2 absolutely pathetic declarer play errors in the final though (plus other stuff i got wrong less unreasonably). the qf was the biggest game i'd ever played in my life at that point. so obv the final was huge. i couldn't sleep the night before with nerves, excitement or whatever. then i played far too quickly and made these 2 stupid mistakes. that was probably the nerves as well. eventually when we won there was no feeling of elation. it was all relief and i felt emotionally drained. if i'm lucky i'll be in the same position again one day and it won't be as intense.

congrats. You were almost the first person I ever played against in a tournament. You were about 8 at the time. Was good to see you didn't tense up and change style in the final. I watched the first part and saw a 5 card jump overcall of 2 for example. Also saw you put in a lot of practice on BBO before hand, good to see the effort pay off.

I did not realize Alex was wank until now. Big congrats on a very well-deserved win!

You and Peter were a real pleasure to watch on vugraph.

Great win!
The egos of bridge players seem to be larger than that of the general population. Which is actually pretty strange, when one considers how humbling a game it is... Michael Rosenberg
