Dan has been playing competitive bridge since 1995, and teaching since 2000. Always interested in languages, he found bidding systems fascinating, starting with his Goren Bridge Complete tome. Dan has translated many bridge texts from other languages.
Dan has had success in Nationals in GNT B (finals), GNT A (semifinals twice), and the Red Ribbon Pairs (1st, 4th). He won the second OKbridge college championships in 1998 playing for the University of Kentucky. Despite all this success, he has only 2800 masterpoints, which makes him ideal for winning bracketed KO events.
In 2017 he published one of the best new books on precision, Standard Modern Precision, 2nd ed.
