about me

I used to own and run a large bridge club in Toronto, largest in Canada and 4th largest on the continent. In 2006, the club was named the top club in NOrth America out of over 3200 clubs. We sold it and now own a School of Bridge in Toronto. I have co-authored 28 bridge books and travel the world teaching bridge.

Teaching online through BBO
Zoom is reasonably easy to use. You just have to learn how to share screen, mute everyone and be able to also share screen with BBO. To have free Zoom you only get 40 mins, so likely you will want to upgrade to that. Number of students is also limited ...
So how's your onboarding experience been?
That is the best app story I have ever heard. Just wonderful. Please forgive me for being off-topic but can anyone tell me if someone is kibitzing at a TEACHING table on BBO and using an iPad, can they hear the VOICE component? Some say voice does not work with ...
Summer NABC Moved
TO whoever posted this: You did not even write at the end that this was an April Fool's joke. Just think of how many people read Bridge Winners and believed this post. I just had a email from someone in Portugal who had booked his airfare and was planning ...
Clubs and the virus
Thank you for the voice of reason, Karen.
Clubs and the virus
Richard, it is not as though I have a choice. We have each paid about $12,000.00 and I made a promise to be their teacher, tour escort, travel agent and registered nurse for the cruise TWO years ago. I have to let this all play out. Meanwhile, they ...
Clubs and the virus
It sure is a mess. I no longer own a club but I do have a school of bridge where we run small novice games, in addition to classes. Registration for classes is down for the first time ever. Emails are coming in suggesting that we cancel the games. My ...
Clubs and the virus
Me again. Just saw one other write-up that caught my eye: On March 6, 2020, Dr. Abdu Sharkawy, internal medicine and infectious diseases consultant with Toronto’s University Health Network and an assistant professor at University of Toronto, penned this. "Covid-19 is nowhere near over. It will be coming to ...
Teaching Lessons During Bridge Games
Maybe obtaining space at a different time is an issue? Perhaps they could have the lessons from 11 am to 1 pm so that those players can then go and play in the game. Scheduling the classes in conflict with the game makes no sense to me.
Farewell
Hang in there, Randy, you are doing great things for bridge!
Farewell
Randy, I am not always happy with ACBL but was merely pointing out that we cannot lay blame for certain things at their doorstep. If you have to fill out forms in order to receive money from ACBL, this does not mean you have to pay tax in USA for ...
