USBF Junior Celebrity Guest Night: Bob Hamman

The United States Bridge Federation junior program, directed by Michael Rosenberg, provides players under the age of 26 with USBF mentors to improve the quality of our junior teamsin international competition. As part of the program, practice sessions are held on Bridge Base Online (BBO), where the juniors play team matches and the mentors analyze and comment on their play. The matches are 15 boards, IMP scored, and take about 90 minutes.

The program has recently instituted “MondayCelebrity Guest Night”, where, on the firstMondayof each month, a world-class player sits in, partners a junior and plays in a team match.

OnMonday, March 6th, beginning at7pm Eastern, the celebrity guest will be Bob Hamman. Larry Cohen and George Jacobs will provide commentary.Kibitzers are invited to watch by logging on to BBO, going to the “Vugraph room,” and joining the tables designated “USBFJR.”

In January Geoff Hampson participated and in February, Brad Moss. In future months it is expected that the juniors will be joined by Bobby Levin, Mike Passell,and John Kranyak, among others. The USBF is most appreciative of the voluntary contributions these top players are making.
