Episode 11

Hi, my name is John McAllister. I have spent the past six years playing bridge all around the world. My goal is to win a world championship. Doing so requires getting into the minds of the world’s best players.

I can not think of a better, more fun way to do so, than to interview great bridge players and share their insights in podcast format.

Amaresh Deshpande – Episode 11

Though he describes himself a mediocre bridge player, Amaresh Deshpande has dedicated his life to make bridge more readily learnable and taught. Amaresh invented the card game Hool, a version of bridge with a distinctly different and more readily teachable “information sharing” stage. He also created the trick taking primer app Kida.

Amaresh’s inventions are inspired by his own challenges in introducing bridge to children with short-attention-spans.
