About the Players
Hello my name is John Kranyak, but my friends call me Kran. I learned to play bridge from my father and late mother. I have been playing professional bridge for 12 years over which I have many accomplishments for which I am proud. I won the national mixed pairs with my late mother and was blessed to be a member of 3 world championship junior teams and one bronze medal winning team.
My regular partner is Vincent Demuy from Montreal, but as he is Canadian I regularly partner Gavin Wolpert in the USBC. I enjoy very much playing with Gavin, he is the first friend I made in the bridge world some 17 years ago.
When not playing bridge I enjoy listening to music, dancing with friends, and BBQs on my roof. For exercise I love to wakeboard though I don't get to go as often as I'd like. I love to travel and meet new people so if you see me at a bridge tournament and we haven't met please introduce yourself. I'm a nice guy (most of the time) :-).
