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.

Thanks for that info, David. I guess I'd like playing top level events in Iceland. Too bad that the one time I did so I left no time to deal with jetlag, and played in a fog the whole weekend.
Reisinger Play problem
I think it was KJ7, QTxx, AJTx, Jx. I can't find a hand record and am not sure about the hearts. I'm sure about the shape, the spades, and the diamonds. Edit: Found the hand record. It was: K J 7 J 10 8 3 A J 10 ...
Open San Francisco Discussion Thread
Is it possible to find online hand records and board results from the Reisinger? I can find only total session scores for each team. Edit: Nm, I found it. From ACBL Live, "Hands" for the hand records and "Old style recaps" for the individual board results.

Peg, as far as I can see, it's not the length of the list, it's only #3 that makes it virtually meaningless to have a BR Q. Nicolas, are you saying that foreign players can get a one-time exemption for the Mini Blue Ribbons?

@John Cox - I know that at least some of those top players that don't care about convention cards are reading this thread. Alas, they probably also don't care to comment about their reasoning. If they did, perhaps some useful lessons could be drawn. I don't see enough ...
Open San Francisco Discussion Thread
Alan, foreign experts are indeed currently allowed to play in the Blue Ribbon Pairs, they just need to be granted an exemption. So what you suggest should be happening at a minimum already is. I think they have to visit some office, which probably takes about 20 minutes. I'm ...

Bad Claim Case from San Francisco

Or social pressure from their peers, which we know isn't going to happen:) Thanks for the reality check, Andy. I appreciate all the comments and support, but I'm sure Andy is right. There is little point in this, so I should go back to trying not to let ...
