about me

It's hard for me to believe, but I've been a professional bridge player and teacher for about 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. When not teaching bridge, I'm often enjoying hiking with new friends in this beautiful weather, while Michael stays home to write comments on Bridge Winners articles.

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.

Gold Rush
Btw, I'd like to mention that Max and Sarah, each with their under 1000 masterpoints, made it with their pickup team to the second day of the Jacoby Swiss! Even if they weren't barely ineligible for Gold Rush, I can assure you that they would not have chosen ...
Venice Bridge Tournament. Harris Pairs Withdraw.
I agree, Greg, and apologize if I implied otherwise. People have different standards for how strong the evidence must be, which is at least part of the reason why I suggested that reaching a consensus on who to boycott wouldn't be possible. That said, I know of quite a ...
Venice Bridge Tournament. Harris Pairs Withdraw.
Art, I agree that sometimes the tournament sponsors put the players in a bad position. In many cases I believe legalities put those sponsors in a bad position. But isn't that a separate issue from the decision of the players on whether to blacklist any partners or teammates of ...
Venice Bridge Tournament. Harris Pairs Withdraw.
Good luck reaching any kind of consensus as to who should be on that list. While many were incensed by the ACBL's recent readmission of Lanzarotti, afaik there was no action whatsoever taken by the players in Memphis. And I heard nothing about any of his teammates or partners ...

Bravo to you and your teammates!
Max Schireson's bidding problem: J9xx Ax xx AQJxx
Max, don't forget that the concern isn't solely what the least bad description of opener's hand is. After 4th suit and 3rd suit auctions, you also want to try to leave responder room to make a descriptive bid. That's one reason why on the OP hand ...
Max Schireson's bidding problem: J9xx Ax xx AQJxx
It's not uncommon for Ax to be the right side.
What am I missing?
Tom, now that you've realized this, perhaps you could edit the now misleading OP about the 30-0 vote for pass.
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: QT8764 3 T85 732
I didn't intend to ask about the first round and second round bids.
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: QT8764 3 T85 732
As some surely suspected, this was a UI situation, though maybe not in the way one would guess. After a slow double, if E were to bid 4, I would not ask for a ruling once I saw their hand because I would think it was normal to bid ...
