about me

Bridge player/teacher/writer and Bridge Winners admin. When not playing bridge I'm writing plays. Or more accurately procrastinating, telling myself I should be working on a play. I live in New York City and am on the board of GNYBA (Unit 155) and serve as New York's Youth Bridge Coordinator.

Country
United States of America

LBIAD

Willey's Vision vs. Mine
I teach beginners 2/1 because it's so much easier. You always (well, pretty much) know what's forcing and what isn't. 1950s bridge was much more complicated in this sense. And I hate the idea of teaching them something that fundamental they'll have to unlearn if ...
How A Junior Would Teach Bidding
We're working on it!!
First Choice - Second Choice - and....
