about me

It's hard for me to believe, but I've been a professional bridge player and teacher for about 30 years. Along with Michael Rosenberg, our then 14-year-old son Kevin, and my mom, Judy Zuckerberg, in 2011 I moved from NY to the Bay Area of California. When not teaching bridge, I'm often enjoying hiking with new friends in this beautiful weather, while Michael stays home to write comments on Bridge Winners articles.

While I've always enjoyed seeing young people learn bridge, in 2013 youth bridge become my passion.  That year I became a mentor and organizer in the USBF Junior training program, and co-founded a youth bridge organization in the Bay Area, Silicon Valley Youth Bridge.

Hool - A Prelude to Bridge
Manoj, I'm not sure why you would even suspect that it was Michael's father (who doesn't play bridge afaik) who wrote this, rather than Michael himself. I would have thought he made clear that he is a high school student, and his profile clarifies that he was ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
Peter, regarding your side note, I strongly agree that it's a good idea for any broader/political discussion take place in the ITTC forum rather than here.
Gender Variance and Conditions of Contest
@Robert: Health insurance rates in California most certainly do differ by age, and I'm pretty sure car insurance does too. Perhaps you are right about gender.
Hilton honors benefits at the host hotel
I just spent over an hour on the phone trying to add my Hilton Honors number to my reservation, and to get a definite answer to the question of whether I would receive points/elite benefits. I spoke with OnPeak and three different people at Hilton. OnPeak knew nothing, and ...
PPs for Soloway KO
Despite there being no direct conflict, I strongly suspect that the Soloway will indeed affect the strength of the Reisinger field. My impression is that more strong teams already choose the North American Swiss than did so in the past. I believe that the Soloway creates at least two reasons ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
Thanks, Jan. "Circumstances of a player’s resignation from a winning team will be reviewed by the USBF Credentials Committee and may affect that team’s certification to represent the United States and any resigning player’s ability to participate in future USBF Championships.” It seems to me this wording ...
Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
@Peter, hasn't the USBF had a long standing policy of disallowing entry to the trials by someone who does not intend to compete in the world championship if they qualify? That has had nothing to do with nefarious reasons. For example, I believe that a few years back a ...

Hilton honors benefits at the host hotel
I'm with you, Larry. I wish we could get some public comment from the ACBL about this situation. Is this issue specific to the Hilton brand, or specific to this location? In the future, do we need to worry about getting our elite benefits from Marriott? I'm looking ...
