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.

Thank you, Jim. Best of luck. And many thanks to Marc van Beijsterveldt for sending me a photo of the U21 standings after Round 20. Here are the approximate standings of the teams in contention - sorry, I can't read all the fractions, and may be misreading some of the ...

12AM California time Tuesday (near the end of RR Match 20), a vugraph operator has reported: "from wbf official: ...at the moment worldbridge.org is blocked by the firewall" This happened for a couple of hours yesterday too. Sure hope it will be unblocked in time for all who want ...

Is it not only you. I'm finding the same.

Steve, I was told a few days ago that only the Final of the U16 would be on VuGraph. Last night I was told by someone reliable that the 4th segment of both semis will be on VuGraph. Presumably that is because the U26 and U21 Round Robins will be ...

Rumor has it the team won by single digits? If so, big congrats!! The website isn't giving any scores. If someone onsite can post results from this round/set here that would be awesome.
