about me

I was active in the Professional Bridge Tour during its brief but interesting life.  I play once or twice a month in my club and attend regional and national tournaments when able. I've authored several bridge books and articles including the beginner rubber bridge book Simplicity Bridge in 2009. I'm focused on finding ways to promote our game of contract bridge at the high school and college age levels using new tools and marketing methods. Somewhere along the line I managed to make Bronze Life Master, but not liking the echelons above LM concept I just claim LM. I will continue to play at bridge, hoping to someday come close to learning the game.

KBA: Reflections on Learning to Play Bridge
No rancor, just no free plays and no free mentors.
KBA: Reflections on Learning to Play Bridge
This normal conflict becomes severe if the new(er) player refuses to do even minimal work needed to improve (like reading your book). The welcome mat gets pulled somewhat faster in such cases.
KBA: Reflections on Learning to Play Bridge
Yes and no. Yes, you are correct when looking at the stratosphere of the game, and even up in the heavens. Every human endeavor needs to attempt to optimize and then push forward from there, breaking what was thought to be the limit. (Imagine, all we needed to do to ...
Thought it was invented in Chicago by Paul Harris.
KBA: Reflections on Learning to Play Bridge
I like to equate this "over and over" process to blocking and tackling drills in football, or pick ups in baseball, or free throws in basketball. Yes, it's boring as hell, but develops muscle memory so you can execute plays without having to think about the basics -- they become ...
Keep Bridge Alive
Maybe Samantha Punch should take a look. She's running the "Keep Bridge Alive" campaign.
Confused old man
Not liking Harry's predicament, but that between you and some BW contributors the condition was discovered and is being treated. Well done all.
