Joe Grue, aka JoBoo, grew up in Richfield, Minnesota where he learned bridge from his parents. His early years in Minnesota instilled a diehard allegiance to just about every Minnesota sports team. In 2001 he moved to New York City at the age of 20 to become a professional bridge player, although not moving into the Murray Hill Brownstone until 2005. In New York, he fought his way through tough rubber bridge games as well as duplicate games. His endless hours at the bridge clubs honed his skills; his World-Class play without studying bridge literature is impressive and unusual amongst top players. After garnering success and fame in New York, he left NYC for Las Vegas.
Joe is an instinctual player who loves to pull off a great swindle. He has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to draw deep inferences from his opponents' actions, as detailed in this ERROR: UNKNOWN ARTICLE "boo-on-bridge-australian-triumph" IN INTERNAL LINK , and his article on his recent ERROR: UNKNOWN ARTICLE "boo-on-bridge-battling-the-cayne-team" IN INTERNAL LINK .
