about me

I used to own and run a large bridge club in Toronto, largest in Canada and 4th largest on the continent. In 2006, the club was named the top club in NOrth America out of over 3200 clubs. We sold it and now own a School of Bridge in Toronto. I have co-authored 28 bridge books and travel the world teaching bridge.

Dummy points versus declarer points
100% we teach to count losers from the long hand's point of view.
Recommendation: Cardplay book for beginners
IMO, the two best bridge books ever written are: Introduction to Declarer Play and Introduction to Defender's Play by Kantar. They are a bit outdated as in those days, one led K from AK vs a trump suit contract. I have just finished updating (revising) both books and the ...
Dummy points versus declarer points
This is what I tell my students. I believe it is easier than LTC. HAND EVALUATION & REVALUING Many students have great difficulty with the concept of hand evaluation. I believe that it is right to count distribution even as an opening bidder. We suggest you count long suits (1 point ...
Have you ever told a beginner ...
