about me

It's hard for me to believe, but I've been a professional bridge player and teacher for over 30 years. Along with Michael Rosenberg, our then 14-year-old son Kevin, and my mom, Judy Zuckerberg, in 2011 I moved from NY to the Bay Area of California. 

While I've always enjoyed seeing young people learn bridge, in 2013 youth bridge become my passion.  That year I became a mentor and organizer in the USBF Junior training program, and co-founded a youth bridge organization in the Bay Area, Silicon Valley Youth Bridge.

The Kibs Are Not Alright
I believe that "self-kibitzing" is a term BBO has used for a long time to apply to a certain type of cheating. I certainly did not invent the term, and I will try to refrain from using it in the future. Since players who want to cheat are probably more ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
@David: "The Kids Are Alright" was the title of a 1965 song by The Who, a 1979 rock musical film, an unrelated award- winning 2010 film, and a 2018 TV sit com. It was suggested to me that the play on words, "The Kibs Are Not Alright" would make for ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
Good question, Yu. I have not been in direct contact with anyone at BBO about this, so on my part I guess it is a one sided plea. I have heard things from others that imply they have reason to hope this can and will get done, but I must ...
Reynolds Team Games-Kibitzers
We lost our June Reynolds KO match today, by 1 IMP. I imagine it would have been exciting for kibitzers to watch. Members of my own family would have liked to watch. I am not against kibitzers. Far from it. Yet we did not have kibitzers. This meant that when ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
I just posted the below on Sjoert Brinks's article and thought it appropriate to post here as well. To those following both articles, apologies for the duplication. Sjoert, Thank you for addressing my request, and for all you are doing for bridge. The ...
Kibitzers always welcome
Sjoert, Thank you for addressing my request, and for all you are doing for bridge. The Alt events are wonderful in many ways. Christina does a fantastic job of the Bulletin, the directors are great, and the reporting of results is awesome. I've commented elsewhere on this site that ...
How to Handle Suspicions of Cheating in an Online Club Game
How to handle suspicions of cheating in an online club game? NOT by posting the deal in a public forum. I'm surprised this article has not been flagged and removed already. Report it to proper authorities. If this was an ACBL game, please read Robb Gordon's articles. Here ...
Web Page for Online College Bridge Championship
Thank you, Giorgio. It's great to be able to see the names of the players, which includes quite a few from the USBF Junior training program.
The Kibs Are Not Alright
Yes, Jim, I think taking away their hand records does stop the "cheat" (singular). How else can someone cheat without a co-conspirator? Are you suggesting that anyone with a clue can figure out how to hack into the hand records? I doubt it, but if so, arguably that is just ...
The Kibs Are Not Alright
Thank you, Bharat. Enabling people, pros or not, to make a good play without that question is very much the issue for me.
