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.

Poll: Did you find this site’s April Fool’s joke funny?
None of those headlines would have taken anyone in for a second, as the annual Bridgewinners April Fools Day article always does. There wouldn't be much point otherwise, in my opinion. Reading the article made it quite clear to anyone thinking that it was a joke. There were more ...
Forcing or non-forcing?
Mike, I don't have time to address the merits of such a definition just now, but I want to state for any juniors reading that I believe strongly the notion of X of 2 being penalty in this auction is rather obscure. To test this belief, I just ...
Brian Zhang's bidding problem: AQ8 Q3 J76 QT653
Alright, I suppose that's enough info to guess what the third way is, that Michael presumably chose with this hand. I'll again suggest that people say what they voted for when their comment is referencing their vote, unless intentionally asking people to guess. I suppose it could be ...

Thanks, Ken.

Mike's point was that the mechanics of running Sjoert's desired movement on BBO would be difficult. Richard, you seem to suggesting that Sjoert should desire something entirely different from what he stated. "I'm guessing that you want a semi balanced movement in which..." I'm not sure ...
World championships individual
Awesome idea, Sjoert! In my opinion if Sjoert is organizing the event he should invite whomever he chooses, and if he wants to call them the top 32 players in the world, that's cool by me. It's not as though we have any ranking system close to the ...
Matchgame: #2 What is 4N?
I'm confused, Dave. I did include "other", as I do on each of these, which is how Finn answered "other." I can't guess what he has in mind in this case, so asked him. Was that unclear, or am I misunderstanding you entirely?
Do defensive beers count if diamonds are trumps?
Another sale for Marc here.
Matchgame: #2 What is 4N?
Can't even guess what other is. Finn, enlighten me please?
Kyle Rockoff's bidding problem: AQJ93 AJ73 A63 3
Of course it's different, and I didnt mean to imply otherwise. You can't possibly discuss every auction but you need rules that cover every auction, as I believe I stresses on Feb 25. The rules need to be simple enough to be clearly remembered in the heat of ...
