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.

MONTREAL "Summer Nationals" in July
I'm a Marriott loyalist and would love a room at Le Westin at the bridge rate for the whole time, if that opens up and I can get it. In the meantime, I've booked the Fairfield Inn, a 15 minute walk away, for a $159 CAD long term ...
When and how should directors educate players about ethics?
Thanks for all the comments. I am persuaded that there is no policy imperative for tournament directors to educate players (via PP or otherwise) when there is a blatant violation of law, at least not in the ACBL. The fact that some others and myself would like to see that ...

I'm trying now and getting that same gap for July 19-21. Frustrating!

What Is First Published Reference to XYZ?
@Dave Beer, I first learned 2 way Checkback over 1N rebids in the mid 1980s, and I learned that 2 puppeted 2. I still play that version with most partners and still call it 2 way checkback. I think it was at least 20 years after that before ...
A Gold Rush win worth reporting
As others have answered, Gold Rush is a restricted event which awards gold points. I think the awards are appropriately modest though, and there are not actually "a lot of masterpoints available" Obviously that is subjective.
A Gold Rush win worth reporting
Thank you, David.
When and how should directors educate players about ethics?
I agree with Steve Chen that it doesn't matter, for the reasons he says. 3 quite likely is/should be a stopper search bid. I could see that bid being made with, for example, a hand such as: Jxx Jxx AKJx Kxx Why would anyone make that bid ...
When and how should directors educate players about ethics?
Daniel, sorry that I wasn't clear. I believe that I had already told the director that I thought the 3 bid was a problem, irrespective of any need for adjustment, both of the first two times he was at the table. The third time, when he came back ...
