Andy Avery holds multiple bridge titles and became a Life Master in 1974. He has been featured in bridge articles including twice in Alan Truscott’s column in the NY Times and recently in Frank Stewart’s nationally-syndicated column. Andy teaches bridge at all levels. He firmly believes that a strong knowledge of the fundamentals of bridge is more important than learning and concentrating on conventions which
require more memory but do not occur very often. Let’s hope Andy will have his guitar on board. He’s quite an entertainer!
Robert Todd is all over the country and the world playing and teaching bridge.
In 2010 Robert founded Adventures in Bridge, Inc., a group of young talented bridge players with whom he teaches and promotes the game. He teaches in person and online, plays with students from club games to world championships, hosts cruises and destination seminars, and writes for various publications. Robert has twice finished in the top 20 of the Barry Crane list, winning over 1500 masterpoints each of those years, and won the inaugural 0-10,000 Knockout Teams (“Mini-Vanderbilt”) at the Dallas NABC.
