Chen YehMr. Chen Yeh, World Life Master.

He was born at Shanghai China and now lives on the island of Formosa (Taiwan), better known as Chinese Taipei.

He graduated in architecture. During his university years, he learnt to play Bridge. Immediately after, Mr. Chen decided to join his family business in manufacturing wooden furniture. He frequently traveled to Indonesia for work.

Around the turn of the century, Mr. Yeh decided that his two sons were ready to take over their father’s job as executives of the Yeh Brothers’ trading company. In the following years, as a consequence, Mr. Yeh had more time available to dedicate to his lifetime passion: playing Bridge.

Since then, he has been playing at least 50 boards per day. He has formed a team of professional players which attends many events all over the world. In 2008, Mr Yeh became a World Champion by winning the 1st World Mind Sports in Beijing (Transnational Teams). In 2012, he reached the Semifinal of the same event in Lille (France). Mr.  Yeh also enjoys playing Bridge online.

Besides being a Bridge Champion, Mr. Yeh is also a Bridge Mecenate. He instituted the Yeh Bros Cup, the invitational biennial event attended by the strongest teams in the world and enhanced by one of the highest prize pools ever. The Yeh Bros Cup has taken place in China (five times), in Taiwan (twice) and in Australia (once). The next edition will be played in Japan.

As Bridge player, Mr.Yeh prefers to play bidding systems as natural as possible. He strongly criticizes the modern bidding gadgets, especially the relay systems used in various parts of the world. He would say: if you bid like that, neither the average public nor many of the commentators will fully understand what is going on. Bridge should also be a game for spectators and public interest but as it is nowadays, public interest is decreasing because the experts’ game is no longer understood.

As a consequence of his views, Mr.Yeh is even thinking about system restrictions for the future participants in the Yeh Brothers’ Cup. Each team should play according to a prescribed, simple natural system unless both teams at a table agree to both play “their own system.”
