David Berkowitz (bridge)

David L. (Dave) Berkowitz (born November 23, 1949)[1] is an American professional bridge player.

In 1998, he came as close as it is possible to come to a world championship without winning it. In the World Open Pairs, he and Larry Cohen led throughout the five-session final, only to be overtaken on the last two boards. He also earned a bronze medal at the 2000 World Team Olympiad in Maastricht, The Netherlands. He was elected to the American Contract Bridge League Hall of Fame in 2010.[2]

Berkowitz whose wife, Lisa, is a former women's world champion, often comments, "I am not even the best player in my own house." They reside in Boca Raton, Florida. Their daughter Dana also plays bridge as well.
