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.

USBC Fantasy Bracket Tiebreaker
Sounds like a good idea to me, Leo. Well, except for the part about Fleisher beating Wolfson, that is.
Congrats:Canadian Womens Team 2019
In the USBF event, which starts this Tuesday, the top two teams out of the five entered will qualify for the Venice Cup.
District 9 (Florida) GNT final
As does District 21. I think the deadline is usually about a week in advance.
District 9 (Florida) GNT final
I'm pretty sure there were actually 24 teams in B, which is a typical size for the D21 B event. I believe the Open was down a few from previous years.
Simple Auction; Simple Question
I just checked and the one page "2/1 in competition" doc I give to intermediate players happens to contain exactly the OP auction as an example. Have I really never shared that doc with you, Max? I agree that there is no reason to trot out this auction undiscussed ...
Simple Auction; Simple Question
Max, for us 2/1 in comp followed by a jump is game forcing. Surely we've discussed that? Hmm, I don't see it covered in our notes.
Score adjustment against/ No score adjustment for my partnership?
Ah, got it! Clever.
Score adjustment against/ No score adjustment for my partnership?
Barry said was that he was present at the table, and was NOT South. I can see how you might have inferred that he was North from #3 of the vote options, but in that case he also said he was E-W (in option #1).
My Journey in Bridge
Kayden, nice to see you here on BridgeWinners! In case you missed it, Michael actually did posted another article after this one. Look for "My Midnight Thoughts"
Score adjustment against/ No score adjustment for my partnership?
You seem to have missed South's takeout double, and I'm not sure why you are assuming that Barry was North.
