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.

World Team Championships in China
David Thompson, I played the first two matches yesterday and sat out the last, so only got to watch vugraph for that one. I mostly watched Italy vs. Australia, which I believe was the featured match. There seemed to be many mistakes just in the scoring at both tables - I ...
World Championship VuGraph Schedule
Here in Wuhan, and of course I am first learning of this (bad news for me) on BridgeWinners. Shall I shoot the messenger if I see him?
Student Scam Warning From ACBL
Deleted, moot. Thanks, moderators for the quick action!
World Team Championships in China
I was there this morning. There are screened tables set up, but I don't know if they are available for warm-up matches.
Interesting Squeeze
My apologies, Michael Xu. I inferred from another comment on this thread that this deal was from the pairs, and when I commented last night I thought I had found it earlier. But that must have been a dream.... Sorry for not confirming before I commented. I blame the whole ...

Thanks, Jan. It is also ExpressVPN for me at the New World Hotel. I just tried again and it's working!
World Team Championships in China
Thanks, Roland. There are advantages to showing more tables, but I think overall it's bad idea if there aren't enough skilled vugraph operators. I'd always prefer to see fewer tables with excellent operators, rather than more tables with operators who have not been fully trained for the ...
Interesting Squeeze
Thanks for sharing this, Michael. I have a few thoughts, some of which I realize have already been expressed by others: 1) I call this "a single that plays as a double" The hand plays the same way as if the Q were a low heart. 2) When I read ...
SIVY B in Opatija
Thanks, John. Patty Tucker in Atlanta (and others) set the standard! Patty convinced us of the importance of summer camp, and we've had one every summer starting in 2014. SiVY camp is only one week in one location, while I believe Atlanta Junior Bridge has offered multiple weeks and ...
SIVY B in Opatija
Congratulations to SiVY B! I'm so proud of you all, and also want to express my appreciation to the team's sponsors. The USBF does not send teams to the Open World Youth event which takes place in odd years, so it's up to individuals to figure out ...
