About the Players

Marty Fleisher


Born in the Big Apple, Marty learned to play bridge at the age of eight by observing his parents and uncle. His biggest bridge thrill was either winning the 2017 Bermuda Bowl, the 2010 Team Trials, the 2011 Vanderbilt, the 2013 Platinum Pairs or the 2016 Spingold. However, he considers his "greatest achievement" a toss up between his marriage to his wife of twenty-eight years and getting to the finals of the Grand Nationals in 1976 (at age 17 still the youngest player to reach a National Championship final). But there was a famine of over twenty-eight years until he won the Swiss Teams at the 2004 Fall Nationals. It is interesting to note it may have been the longest stretch between 1st and 2nd for anyone. Indeed, it took Marty's teammates in the National Swiss (Gavin Wolpert and Vince Demuy) only one National to transcend from bridesmaid to bride! Marty enjoys few leisure moments for hobbies other than bridge as his professional commitments as a manager of life insurance investments and attorney are very time-consuming.

Brad Moss

Michael Brad Moss was born in 1971 in New York City. It should come as no surprise to find that he took to bridge like a duck to water - his parents are Mike Moss and Gail Greenberg.
Brad was named the ACBL King of Bridge at the age of 18. Two years later, he became the youngest player ever to win the New York Player of the Year title. Also in 1991, he was a member of the USA team that just missed out on a medal at the World Junior Teams in Ann Arbor, Michigan, finishing fourth, and won his first National title - the Master Mixed Teams. In 1993, he added to his tally by winning the Grand National Teams and the Life Masters Open Pairs.

His successful partnership with Fred Gitelman included wins in the 1998  NABC Board-a-Match Teams, a third in the 1998 Cavendish Invitational Pairs, first in the 2005 & 2010 Spingolds, the 2010 Roth Open Swiss, the 2012 Jacoby Open Swiss, the Bronze medal in the 2005 Bermuda Bowl and gold in the 2010 Rosenblum teams.

With Joe Grue he finished second in the 2013 Spingold (tied at the end of regulation play) and won the 2016 Spingold and 2017 Bermuda Bowl.
