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.

WBF adds Mixed Teams, gives Europe 2 more spots in all categories
I wonder how 24 teams instead of 22 will affect the format of the event. It's normally a 7 day full round robin of 3 matches a day. Will a day be added to the already very long event, or will matches be shortened? Or something else? If Jan ...

Ah, I see now, thanks. I'd never scrolled down to below the unreadable bracket to find the readable list.

Peg, do you mean the list of qualifiers in the Bulletin is fine? I agree that it's fine, though some might be interested in the actual scores, including who played in the event who didn't qualify, how close they were, etc. I am also requesting an online list ...

10:12 AM in Philadelphia and still no list of Swiss results/qualifiers from yesterday on ACBL live that I can find. There is a list of qualifiers in the Bulletin. There is also a bracket published, but that is rather tough to read. In other parts of the world ...
Crouch and Cope Win Silodor Pairs
Not only did these guys win, but they seemed to do so in less than half the time allotted. I was passing them boards in the evening, and they were following me E-W in the afternoon. My impression was that Simon and Peter rarely finished a round with under 9 ...
Vanderbilt Round of 16 Vugraph matches
Rosenthal vs. Mahaffey
Your Opinions, Please
My opinion is that it's easily believable that a pair as described has no agreement. Many players play with lots of different partners, fill out a card, and don't maintain system notes. Even if the auction did come up sometime in the past, they may have no recollection ...

Hooray ACBL! We have preduped boards and hand records for each match in the Round of 64 of the Vanderbilt. While I understand that many would prefer that every match play the same boards, in order to be able to compare with friends, etc., overall I prefer this. Security is ...

Thank you to BridgeWinners for providing the first round matchups. It seems like this info should also be available through the ACBL website, but I couldn't find it in the Bulletin or elsewhere before Bridgewinners posted it.
