Michael Rosenberg

Michael Rosenberg (New Rochelle, NY) is a stock options trader on the rare occasions he is not playing bridge. Michael has two gold medals in world competition, as well as numerous national titles, and his partnership with Zia has been one of the world’s best for the best part of two decades. He grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, and is still the youngest player ever to win the Gold Cup, Britain’s premier teams event. His wife Debbie is a US international player who has won the world Women’s Pairs title.

Zia, usually known by that name alone, is arguably the most recognizable bridge player of our times. Born in Pakistan, he has homes in London and New York, and now represents the USA in international competition. His tournament success include numerous North American championships and six world championship medals (including a gold in 2009). He writes a regular bridge column in The Guardian and his autobiography, Bridge My Way, as a bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic.
