about me

It's hard for me to believe, but I've been a professional bridge player and teacher for over 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. 

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.

Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
"Michael, we have to go by the appeal record." Says who? We are having a discussion on Bridgewinners, and I don't think there is any such rule in the community guidelines. I believe we are allowed to use common sense. If every appeal record of a case that we ...
Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
Initial comment deleted because it didn't make sense, sorry. I grant that it's quite possible that it was known not to make any difference how many down given the specific other table result in this match, and therefore neither the director nor the panel put any effort into ...
Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
The matches were 7 boards, using the fractional victory point scale, so every IMP counted (up until a win by 40 or so). I guess you might be right that it won't make "much" difference, but could easily be a 2 IMP difference between down 1 and down 2 ...
Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
Apologies if I'm misinterpreting, but this sounds to me like a gripe about someone getting screwed because they misstated a claim. Is that your implication? In this case declarer got screwed by not knowing what the contract was. That seems eminently fair. There would have been nothing wrong with ...

Thanks for spelling that out, Michael. Maybe that will help some people get past the "feeling" that the 8 is necessarily high.

Junior Party Sat Nov 30 at SF NABC!
Ron is up there on the list of people who have been highly supportive of junior bridge who the organizers wish they could invite. Unfortunately not only is there a budget, but even less flexible is the limited space at the venue. They want to make sure there is room ...
