From the QBA website – written in 2004

Tony Jackman is one of the best known bridge players in Queensland and this status is only partly due to his role as bridge correspondent for the Courier Mail. He grew up in Brisbane and was dux of St Joseph’s College and has been at the very top of players in the state for some decades. He has played with a remarkable array of Queensland Leading players and has won most of the state titles for which he is eligible. In addition he is well known for his extensive activities as a bridge teacher. He formed a playing partnership with Mike Robson in the seventies which lasted for more than a decade. Among the most notable of his victories were the NSW pairs in 1962 and the National Pairs in 1972 and a string of state and Gold Coast titles. One unique achievement of which he is proud is that in 1981 when he won mixed titles at each of Club, State and National level in the one year. Administratively he has served in many roles for the QBA and is presently vice President. He is also well known for his role as Convenor/Chairman of the Gold Coast Congress for many years.
