How did you get into bridge?  

I started playing bridge in the mid-80s while studying mechanical engineering in Darmstadt. At that time a school friend and fellow student was talking about bridge and, somewhat naively, I claimed that I could play too because when I was a teenager, I had already been allowed twice to act as the dummy in my mother’s bridge game. At the next club evening I was taught better. But I was bitten by the bridge bug and with “learning by doing” I fought my way through the beginners’ time. 

What’s your best bridge memory? 

As coach of the German women’s national team, seeing my wife win silver medals at the Venice Cup in 2005 and 2007. .

Extra tip from the Expert:

My favourite game mode on Funbridge is the Team Championship.
