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.

10:37 Pacific time, the website is back, at least for the moment. I still hope the WBF will consider a plan for posting score updates elsewhere in the event that it becomes blocked again.
World Youth Team Championships August 8-18 2018
On further thought, rather than posting here, could the WBF post on their Facebook page, which would surely reach more people and could be easily shared?
World Youth Team Championships August 8-18 2018
That's kind of you, Jim. A friend suggested to me that under the circumstances it might be possible for the WBF to post updates here, or perhaps elsewhere with a link here on BridgeWinners. If there is a WBF official reading this, please consider this suggestion. Many are writing ...

Congratulations to France and China 3 on reaching the Finals of the U16 World Championship. They will play a 48 board match for the championship, while Sweden and USA play off for the bronze medal.
World Youth Team Championships August 8-18 2018
Thanks, Jim. Rooting hard for the team to take the bronze, and, with any luck, avoid torturing you in the process.

Just after I posted the above, I see that everything is back on the website, so check there for info!

Thank you, Jim. Best of luck. And many thanks to Marc van Beijsterveldt for sending me a photo of the U21 standings after Round 20. Here are the approximate standings of the teams in contention - sorry, I can't read all the fractions, and may be misreading some of the ...

12AM California time Tuesday (near the end of RR Match 20), a vugraph operator has reported: "from wbf official: the moment is blocked by the firewall" This happened for a couple of hours yesterday too. Sure hope it will be unblocked in time for all who want ...
