USBF Junior Celebrity Guest Night: Mike Passell

The United States Bridge Federation junior training program provides players under the age of 26 with USBF mentors to improve the quality of our junior teams in 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 oneMondayof each month, a world-class player sits in, partners a junior and plays in a team match.

OnMonday, May 15, beginning at7pmEastern, the celebrity guest will beMike Passell. David Berkowitz and George Jacobs will provide audio commentary. Kibitzers are invited to watch by logging intoBBO, going to the "Vugraph room", and joining the tables labeled "USBFJR." Prior guests include Jeff Meckstroth, Bob Hamman, Brad Moss, and Geoff Hampson. In future months it is expected that the juniors will be joined by Bobby Levin, Kerri Sanborn, and Eddie Wold, among others. The USBF is most appreciative of the voluntary contributions these top players are making.
