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.

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 ...
Interview with Jan Martel
Jan, you are inspiring. I've put the below dates on my calendar, and, barring anything unanticipated, I plan to be there the whole time. If/when I'm not playing, I'll be glad to help you however I can. 2018 Open USBC The 2018 Open USBC will be ...
Interview with Bronia Jenkins
Yes, that's correct. I didn't mean to dis Mike. In context of Trials, and specifically Oren's interviews, the partnership with Geoff seemed relevant. Canada did better when Bronia partnered Mike:) Geoff was on that team also.
Interview with Jan Martel
Great comment, Ai-Tai. I thought Jan was a little too willing to agree that the event is expensive, when the cost is essentially equivalent to an NABC, and you get so much more for your money.
Slow Tricks
Kevin, shouldn't you have gone to bed earlier so that you'd be awake now to watch your father on vugraph? Or maybe I don't see you on BBO now because you are busy studying for your last final. If you do well on your CS finals, then ...
Interview with Bronia Jenkins
Congratulations, Bronia and team! Bronia, it's fantastic having you back in the bridge world - it really wasn't the same without you. For those who don't know, back in the day Bronia played Juniors for Canada twice, once with Geoff Hampson as her partner. Those were fun times.
2017 Grand National Teams
Oh, these guys could handle it, though they are probably not eligible for B. The team of Lynn Shannon, Michael Bodell, Stephen Tu and Mike Cailean won the Flight A. Mike Cailean can't play the event in Toronto, so was replaced by Steve Chen for the national level. I ...
-700 the hard way, ATB
What is the easy way? Take a time machine back about 30 years?
Congratulations, guys!
