Robert ToddRobert Todd plays bridge at every level from local club games to international championships. He has finished in the top 20 on the Barry Crane list multiple times (with over 1500 Masterpoints each of those years), posted several top-10 finishes in National Pairs events with numerous partners, and won the 0-10,000 Knockout Teams at the Dallas NABC in 2014. He has become a popular lecturer at Regional and National Tournaments and, has quite a following  among our Regionals-at-Sea and Sectionals-at-Sea guests. His clear and entertaining style has contributed to his becoming one of the top bridge teachers in North America. In addition, he writes for several bridge publications. 


Michael BerkowitzMichael Berkowitz hated bridge right up until he loved it. With two World Champion bridge players as parents, conversations at the dinner table often evolved into bridge. Each time that happened, Michael and his sister would charge their parents a quarter, resulting in a fund that helped pay for their education. Michael didn’t get serious about bridge until after college. He worked as a teacher and director at Honors Bridge Club in New York City, and became the Head Director for both Aces and Cavendish Bridge clubs. He’s known as New York’s most-loved director for his friendliness, quick wit, and compassion. Larry Cohen, recognizing Michael’s natural teaching abilities, added him as a valuable member of the “Bridge with Larry Cohen” travel and teaching team where he has earned the respect and appreciation of his students.

St MaartenPortDec. 16 – St. Barts (8AM–10PM). Boasting 300 days of sunshine a year, tiny Saint-Barthélemy is very French, very plush, and very peaceful.
