Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas
7 Nights, from October 20 – 27, 2024 ACBL Sanction # 2410108
Alice Travel Bridge Desk: 888-816-2457
Michael Berkowitz tells his life story, through bridge, every month in the ACBL Bulletin. His funny, instructive columns show how he has often learned important lessons the hard way. Michael learned from the very best — his parents — both of whom are world champions. Michael believed they would wince every time he missed an overtrick (they deny this). As a result, he understands how difficult it can be to get to the next level of bridge play without getting discouraged.
His clear instruction allows students to make concrete steps forward without getting lost in pursuit of perfection. In addition to teaching for "Bridge with Larry Cohen", Michael is the Program Chair for the ACBL Education Foundation, a non-profit working to promote bridge for all. He lives in Salt Lake City with his wife, Emily, and dog Yeti.
