Bridge - the best game ever invented (and the game of my life)
This page is dedicated to Evan Bailey (5/12/1929 - 3/30/2008), whose charisma and enlightenments will inspire me forever.
"You may find us a little larger than life, but that is only because life at times is apt to be too drab and dreary."
-- The Hideous Hog, in Victor Mollo's Bridge in the Menagerie
When I was taught to play bridge more than a decade and a half ago, I knew instantly it was the game for me. However I wasn't introduced to duplicate bridge until 2002. From that moment, the fish has met the water and the stage was set for me. Words can hardly express my love and passion for this game. My dream is to become the world's greatest player. It is admittedly an ambitious dream, but I have never stopped working towards it. I am fortunate to be a student of Joel Hoersch who would never let me stop improving my game. I am also blessed to have at various occasions played with and learned from some top experts in the nation such as Evan Bailey, Jade Barrett, Steve Cooper, Jason Feldman, Marshall Miles and Ivar Stakgold. Below are some highlights of my bridge career so far:
Mini-Spingold I (0-5000)
I was the national runner-up of the seven-day Mini-Spingold I (0-5000) with Stephen Tu, Warren Cederborg and Greg Michaels in the Las Vegas Summer NABC in 2008.
Excerpt from the November 2008 Bridge Bulletin (to come)
I was the winner of both ACBL Mini-McKenney and Aces of Clubs national races for my category (100 to 200) in 2006. Many thanks to all my partners, teammates and supporters in San Diego area and San Francisco Bay area for such a great year to remember! In addition, I was on the ACBL Barry Crane Top 500 list for 2006, 2007 and 2008.
