about me

I am one of the founders of bridgewinners.com. More than half of my life has been spent travelling the world playing bridge. My wife Jenny and I have settled in Florida and have three children, Danielle, Brandon, and Ryan. We are both professional bridge players and met at the 2003 Bermuda Bowl in Monte Carlo. I love bridge.

Thx but after a little research I’m confident that a phone is enough hardware for the task.

I appreciate all of this feedback. The bar code scanning idea makes it less daunting to catalog it. I’ll try to find the right app to catalog/scan. Once they are cataloged I’ll reach back out.

Really enjoyed your write up. Articles like this is what we were hoping would happen when we launched BW. Events like this happen and for the most part no one ever hears about them. No one media outlet can be responsible for covering every last event world wide. I wish ...
Big Ideas
It would have little to no affect on me financially if they changed the Swiss rule. Almost all regional bridge I play is 4 handed. What would have an affect on me indirectly is if they changed the KO payouts to be as % played. This would cause pros to lose ...
Big Ideas
Revamping the masterpoint system to attract attendance is a big idea. Surely we can do better than complaining what others are commenting about without adding anything constructive to the discussion.
Big Ideas
Jeff, Yes it really is that fragile. At a minimum it would cause a lot (hundreds of weeks work) of 5th/6th person jobs to be lost and on the other end the reduced success would cause people to quit. What product would a consumer be ok with paying the ...
Big Ideas
It may have been a programming error that I am thinking of Mackenzie. Or perhaps a programming error in my brain. Jeff that is all good and fine if the payout structure was designed properly to scale from the get go. We are now in a place where people are ...
Big Ideas
The reasons the pro tour didn't attract me was simple. The money wasn't good enough. Bridge pros make a very good predictable living being hired to play on teams. Taking a week of expenses to play in a tournament that may not produce any income vs getting a ...
Big Ideas
That may be true about the late 70's, but it must have reverted between then and the early 2000's. 5-10 years ago they were awarding full overall awards to everyone on swiss teams and changed it to be based on % of matches played.
Big Ideas
It changed within the last 5-10 years. It would be sensible if masterpoints actually equated skill. It is not sensible when they are only used to attract players.
