About Me

Andre Asbury is a local bridge expert, an ACBL certified club director and teacher in Warner Robins, GA. He has been playing bridge for 12 years, has taught for Atlanta Junior Bridge and taught several bridge classes in Middle Georgia, and has over 3000 masterpoints. He has won countless sectional and regional events. He was a also member of the USA team that competed in the University World Bridge Championships in Lodz, Poland in 2008. He regrets not competing in more junior events but enjoying a normal college life, getting an engineering degree, and starting an engineering career properly took priority over bridge.

Away from bridge, he works full-time as an electronics engineer. He is slowly working on a Master's degree at Mercer University. He frequently can be found at the tennis courts when the weather is nice. He is semi-active on his relationship and travel blog, Je Veux Voyager as well posting some bridge articles on Bridge Blogging which will may have some overlap with this site but contain some less formal bridge posts as well. He occasionally appears in community theater plays in Macon, and is also an enthusiast for baseball and French movies.

His bridge interests in particular are defensive signals and canape bidding systems. You can email him at aaasbury @ gmail.com or find him on Bridge Base as dredog03.
