Welcome to Rookie Bridge!

Welcome to my bridge blog. I teach a beginner bridge lesson series at Seattle Bridge Center. The series is called Ten Weeks to Basic Bridge and a new series will start in September 2017.

I’m an ACBL club-level director and I host a Rookie Duplicate game every Tuesday at the center.  It’s free to play if you have fewer than 50 ACBL masterpoints.

I’ve been playing bridge since 2012 and enjoy teaching the game almost as much as playing the game.

I plan to use this blog to explore concepts and questions that come up in my classes and in the Rookie Duplicate games that we might not have time to tackle in person.

The target audience for this blog is people who attend my class. However, I’m happy to take questions from any bridge player as time allows.
