John Hurd


John Hurd, also known as "Johnny" or "Jimmy", to distinguish him from his roomate and junior teammate, John Kranyak, was born on January 2nd, 1979. John was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina. He learned bridge from his parents as did his brother Andy, who represented the United States in the World Junior Championships as a member of USA 2 in 2005.

John exhibited his talents from an early age and represented the United States on multiple junior teams, including winning gold medals in the 2001 and 2005 World Junior Championships. John's regular partner for the past 12 years has been Joel Wooldridge, with whom he has already achieved stunning success at the North American Bridge Championships and internationally.

John studied geology at the College of Charleston, and moved to New York City a couple of years later to become a full-time professional bridge player, where he and several others live in the infamous Murray Hill brownstone.
