about me

It's hard for me to believe, but I've been a professional bridge player and teacher for about 30 years. Along with Michael Rosenberg, our then 14-year-old son Kevin, and my mom, Judy Zuckerberg, in 2011 I moved from NY to the Bay Area of California. When not teaching bridge, I'm often enjoying hiking with new friends in this beautiful weather, while Michael stays home to write comments on Bridge Winners articles.

While I've always enjoyed seeing young people learn bridge, in 2013 youth bridge become my passion.  That year I became a mentor and organizer in the USBF Junior training program, and co-founded a youth bridge organization in the Bay Area, Silicon Valley Youth Bridge.

San Diego rooms - host hotel
Thanks very much, Jonathan. Due to your post, I just sent this info to the SiVY YNABC group, and one parent is already very happy. They had a room reserved at a much higher rate and were able to change it.
Nice defence! (Oh to be young again...)
That is amazing! Can you link to the hand?

Requesting a higher bracket
Max, Did the director give you any explanation of why this happened? I don't understand much about formats, but it seems to be the consensus that 11 and 10 is not an improvement over 12 and 9.

You mean the 2015 SiVY Volunteer Appreciation Individual doesn't count?
Entries are open for the Michael Seamon Junior USBC
@Alan - I remember noticing that in 1991, which was the third time the event was held, and the host country had won each time. I don't think that the tendency has continued since then.
Why is bridge like sex?
What I find bizarre about Law271B and most related discussions I've heard is the assumption that bids have meanings. Bids do not have inherent meanings. Partnerships make agreements about the meanings, and most partnerships frequently forget or misunderstand their own agreements. This relatively new law about changing an insufficient ...
A New Ethics?
@David - I don't feel strongly about most of this discussion, but I take great exception to calling any of this a "new sense of ethics" Reasonable people can disagree about what constitutes unethical behavior, but imo playing a game by the rules belongs nowhere near that category. No, you ...
Implications of the missing board 16
@Kieran: I've read much speculation over the years that this would happen with chess clocks, but I wasn't aware it had ever actually been tried. Can you provide details as to where, when, for how many events/ boards, etc.? I'm surprised that I did not know about ...
