about me

Bridge player/teacher/writer and Bridge Winners admin. When not playing bridge I'm writing plays. Or more accurately procrastinating, telling myself I should be working on a play. I live in New York City and am on the board of GNYBA (Unit 155) and serve as New York's Youth Bridge Coordinator.

In the Well: Jose Damiani

Open Memphis Discussion Thread
After the board's plea to stay at the host hotel in Hawaii, I tried to do my part and stay in one of the (4?) host hotels in Memphis. And all were booked. So I saved money booking my hotel on Hotwire. What's the deal? I'm sure ...
Open Memphis Discussion Thread
I agree. Memphis is a great location for the spring nationals. The weather was great, the food even better. It's a good playing site, with the national and regional events right next to each other. And surely convenient for ACBL staff, right across the river. I hope it remains ...

Is Bridge a Sport?
If bridge is a sport, bridge players are athletes. Uh, no. Q.E.D.
