The bridge world was saddened to lose one of our brightest young players on April 2nd. His many friends have written eloquently of his life on BridgeWinners. His friends have also asked the USBF to do something in his honor, and we definitely will, although we don't know what yet. Sam was a member of the USBF Junior program until he "aged out" and represented the USBF in the Under-26 event at the 2018 World Youth Bridge Team Championship in Wijiang China in Sam's last year as a Junior, where his team made it to the KO stage and lost a close match in the Quarterfinal.

Rob Barrington posted a YouTube memorial to Sam you may enjoy watching.

He will be missed by all who knew him. Donations in his honor may be made to the USBF Junior Fund.
