Episode 13

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.


Originally from Denmark, Kare Gjaldbaek’s young family and pursuit of a PhD in mathematics have largely kept him away from the bridge table of late. He met his American wife at a junior bridge camp and thinks it might have been the last time she played.

Kare’s greatest playing successes came during his junior bridge days and he served as non-playing captain of the world champion Danish junior team in 2008.
