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 now 19-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.  I am now a mentor in the USBF Junior training program, and have co-founded an organization to teach bridge in schools in the Bay Area, Silicon Valley Youth Bridge.

Do people hate round robins?
@Michael Kopera, I have heard the 3 ways in knockouts referred to a round robins by the directors. At the beginning, they will announce something like "tables 1-3 are head to head, and tables 4-6 are in a round robin". I don't play in all that many regional knockouts ...
Do people hate round robins?
@Michael, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who has had this thought, including that N-S should move the boards if any players do. So how do we change this? Is there actually a written procedure which dictates that E-W bring their teammates the boards, or ...
Double Dummy problem 6N
The mess in the kitchen might stick. This will wait.
Double Dummy problem 6N
Reasonable start, Ellis, but if that were all there was to it, I wouldn't have found it interesting enough to post:)
Do people hate round robins?
I agree, Michael. I don't know what this article is referring to. Is it about a round robin with several teams (typically 8) playing each other through a day, as has become common in regionals (often referred to as "Round Robin Swiss")? Or is it about somehow holding a ...
UI in club games?
Same experience here Neal, not merely against very experienced players, but also some world class. That said, I haven't used a stop card in a long time. I do think most of the experienced players at our club at least try to wait over a stop card. However, the ...
Proposed System Regulations Changes to GCOC
I tried the link in the OP to the system summary form guidelines, and it appears to be broken. Is it working for others?
Michael Seamon (1960-2017)
With Michael's family, I mourn this tragic loss. I plead with anyone who wishes to discuss this administrative issue to take it elsewhere, such as a post on Bridge Winners Site Feedback.
