Professional Bridge

There are increasing numbers of professional bridge players, particularly in the USA and western Europe.  Broadly, professionals are paid to teach (in clubs, schools, or privately), to write (books, features, articles), or to play (sometimes all three!).  Many teams, including national teams, have a sponsor – an enthusiastic Bridge player who hires a partner and team to compete.  This is true of many of the top US and Italian teams.  At other levels, professionals play a session of Bridge or a Bridge tournament with their client.  A few Bridge professionals still earn a living playing Rubber Bridge for money.
