about me

Since 1976 I've owned and operated bridge clubs in New York City. Since 2014 that club's been Honors. We currently run 18,000 duplicate tables a year, but we are most proud of the dozens of classes, the now eleven rubber bridge sessions, and the five games for players with fewer than 50 master points, that we offer every week. Just last year we merged with Aaron Silverstein's two NYC clubs, Aces and Cavendish. I am now responsible for overseeing 27,000 tables a year.

I'm also the 1st Alternate on the BoG representing Unit 155 and a member of Steve Moese's BOG Teacher and Club Manager Committee.

My 2018's ABTA Introductory Book of the Year,,"A Taste of Bridge"  (Master Point Press) is the result of 40 year's teaching and watching others teach bridge to the absolute beginner. It is the first book of its kind to be published in many years and reflects a more modern and simple approach to reaching todays students who bring a lot less to the table, in terms of practical card skills, than did their predecessors. 

 For those of you waiting for a beginner book that teaches card play before bidding, bidding starts on page 101 of ToB.

Favorite Bridge Memory
Every hand where I get the better of it, or they do, through guile, stealth, or rarely in my case, brilliance.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Are you kidding me?
Yet, according to Michael Rosenberg this rule has been in effect for many years now.
Are you kidding me?
Let's just see how we can make the game even less attractive to all but the elite players. I have an idea. Make it even more artificial than it already is and also make it so that unsuspecting and less sophisticated players have even less of a chance against ...
Are you kidding me?
We still are required to alert 2D when partner opens 1NT, but not in this situation? Where's Edgar when you need him?
Taking Bridge Seriously
I couldn't have said it better myself.
A 'Bridge Center' Organization
Remains to be seen. But thanks.

Both of you are bridge centers in the truest sense of the word. Welcome aboard.

Don, That's also the problem with why not allowing new clubs into areas where older, established clubs already exist, is problematic.
BOG meeting
Nothing facetious. Which motion failed?
Another Damn Good Teacher (and Woman) Adiosed
A lovely lady, indeed.
