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.

Country
United States of America

I AM NOT A JUNIOR ANYMORE
I'd imagine that going from the juniors, where you're having fun, making friends, and playing against people your own age, to open bridge, where it's mostly old farts, is a rather jarring transition. And open bridge is a lot less fun. That's why so many younger ...

Well done!
Congratulations to Adam and Zach!

Expected turnout for the Soloway KO in San Francisco?
My family aren't all bridge players. They get off work on the actual Thanksgiving. They celebrate on the actual Thanksgiving. I've suggested celebrating a week early or late; didn't go over well.
Expected turnout for the Soloway KO in San Francisco?
Election results aren't finalized until September 15. So we'll see in a month or so. But if I get elected, yes, it will mean missing Thanksgiving at home. And my mom will probably cry every year.

Expected turnout for the Soloway KO in San Francisco?
Kevin, we manage to have two other nationals each year that aren't over a holiday. Why is the fall different? When I told my mom that if I got elected as District Director I'd have to miss Thanksgiving for the next few years, she started crying. Literally crying ...
