about me

Chessmaster (used to be Ranked 50th in Canada)

Had taken up club level bridge 5 years ago. I devote a good amount of time to studying bridge. I am a solid player, regularly winning or placing in various club events with pick up partners. I am interested in playing in national events in the top brackets.  I have won (as a team-player) a couple of zip  knockouts in NABC events)

I primarily play in midwest area but am willing to travel to various regionals.

Currently studying Rudinesco, Martens etc

Country
United States of America

Would like partner for Memphis Rockwell Mixed Pairs
Hi Dawn, I might be open for this event. While I may not be a pro, I am a strong player who is training part-time to be an expert (I know that sounds like an oxy-moron - it is what it is). Let me know if you are interested and perhaps ...
Memphis Availability for National and Regional Events
Hi Kyle, Looks like I am open to play in the Memphis Nationals. I played a match against you in the Zip Knockout in Atlanta last year. My team won 2 Zip Knockouts events in Atlanta. Let me know if you are interested Regards Imtiaz
