Norman Selway

Norman learnt bridge at the age of 14 and was taught mainly by a player called Paul Gordon, whose better half Fritzi was half of the best women’s pair of all time. He played mostly high stake rubber bridge with the likes of John Collings, an ailing Jonathan Cansino, an embryonic Zia Mahmood, Paul Hackett and Geoffrey Breskal, amongst many others! It didn’t do much for Norman’s bidding in that company, but his card play became very sound – it had to be! When he converted to duplicate he won all the major competitions more than once, with the exception of the Gold Cup, which he is hoping to add very soon.
