about me

It's hard for me to believe, but I've been a professional bridge player and teacher for over 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. 

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.

Confession of a Self-Kibitzer
I normally avoid commenting on thread hijacks because I dont wish to add yet another off topic comment. However, I will make an exception here because this OP is so very important to our game, and this has the potential to turn into a rather long subthread. I strongly suggest ...
Confession of a Self-Kibitzer
Richard Fleet says: ".. I regard cheating by an individual as far less serious than cheating when another party is involved. In particular, accessing the hand records is not in the same universe as prearranged illegal communication between partners." I find this position mind-boggling. While it's only Richard who I ...

@Alex Bealles - It is possible to have a Zoom session without video, for either or both parties. How are you differentiating a Zoom session with audio only from a phone call? Or do you mean to say that the default is a Zoom meeting WITH video, unless the captains agree ...

McKenzie, Is my understanding of the following correct? If a 6-handed junior team enters, it will cost them only $20 per day total, assuming each player is eligible for a $15 per session discount. If a team with 4 eligible juniors enters, will it cost them $80 per day for ...

Agree, Jim Fox. I've been pleasantly surprised by how few significant disruptions we've had due to connection issues. I don't recall any matches where we simply had to quit, or even find a substitute for more than a deal or two. The biggest disruption we've had ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
I believe that "self-kibitzing" is a term BBO has used for a long time to apply to a certain type of cheating. I certainly did not invent the term, and I will try to refrain from using it in the future. Since players who want to cheat are probably more ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
@David: "The Kids Are Alright" was the title of a 1965 song by The Who, a 1979 rock musical film, an unrelated award- winning 2010 film, and a 2018 TV sit com. It was suggested to me that the play on words, "The Kibs Are Not Alright" would make for ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
Good question, Yu. I have not been in direct contact with anyone at BBO about this, so on my part I guess it is a one sided plea. I have heard things from others that imply they have reason to hope this can and will get done, but I must ...
