Welcome to the Setting Trick!

Hi, my name is John McAllister. I played my first major bridge tournament, the Spring North American Bridge Championships, in March 2012. Since, I have been fortunate to play in tournaments all around the world. My goal is to win a world championship. First choice is the Bermuda Bowl. This will require either a lot of money or an increase in skill. Talking bridge with the world’s best players is a great place to start on the latter.



About the host

I started playing bridge as a freshman in college thanks to my aunt’s insistence. A recipe for a good day involves some form of the game. There are a lot of people today that do not even consider bridge as a hobby or profession that I hope will one day thanks to my efforts.


Double Dummy

Our goal with this film is to introduce bridge to a new generation of players.
     Learn about Adam Kaplan, the USA1 team leader, who first learned bridge on a cruise with his parents aged five, his mysterious partner Zach Brescoll, the fiery Grossack brothers and the up and coming Jengs. 
    Double Dummy aims to show what makes bridge such a compelling lifelong pursuit. 94 year old great great grandmothers Penelope Paddock and Louise Hayes round out the cast which also includes Atlanta Junior Bridge founder Patty Tucker, Phil Gordon and bridge enthusiast Warren Buffett.
