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.

Open Orlando Discussion Thread
Nic mentioned packing light because it will be warm outside even in the evening. No doubt this is true, however it also tends to be very cold indoors in Florida, so do have something warm to wear while playing bridge, and for restaurants. Ime many Europeans find the sort of ...
Table feel vs Cheating
It seems to me that most commenting here are misunderstanding the point of the OP, or else I am. The way I read it, the author isn't drawing a comparison between cheating and table feel, or making any sort of judgment on the propriety of efforts to read opponents ...
Orlando Hotel Price
Jordan, I did see that for Hawaii (optional, as Michael points out), but I'm pretty sure I also saw something about resort fees being waived for Orlando when I made a reservation many months ago. It's possible I'm mis-remembering, though given that Sabine is certain, and has ...
Orlando Team Schedule Revisions
Thank you, Al. Even if a significant increase is not expected, I do think an official and detailed statement in advance of the event would be welcome, rather than potentially deciding format after the event starts (which, irrc, happened with the McConnell in Philadelphia). I know there was talk of ...

Understandable mistake, David.
What are your pet peeves?
Gloating.

Before David causes mass (alas, maybe not so mass) panic, this is not correct. The Open Pairs starts Monday. The Women's and Seinors pairs start Tuesday.
Orlando Team Schedule Revisions
Tom, it could be both those things contributing, for sure. One tiny data point: Today I spoke with a pair at my local club in California, and they are still considering going for the Mixed Pairs. They played that event in Philadelphia 2010 and enjoyed it. One reason they are ...
Orlando Hotel Price
Bernard, I also recall reading that somewhere, and then also saw the fee on my confirmation. That was part of the reason I decided to stay elsewhere, and canceled my reservation.
Orlando Team Schedule Revisions
Thanks, Al. What happens if the women's teams has 18 teams? Or 20? Or much less likely, 25? Will it still be 2 days cutting to 8 in all those circumstances? I really think that should be covered, and had expected you would be providing those details, not only ...
