Andrew became a regular at the SiVY monthly events, missing only one since he began playing.
Andrew decided to try to become the youngest Life Master about a year ago, after winning the Art Weinstein Trophy at the San Mateo Sectional in August 2019. The trophy is awarded to the winners of the 99er pairs event, which were Andrew and his big brother Charlie with a 63% game.
A more detailed description of Andrew’s journey in bridge is also available in the August ACBL Bulletin (only ACBL members with My ACBL accounts may access this) and in a recent article in the San Jose Mercury News.
