Sylvia Shi (born July 24, 1988) is an American multi national champion and world champion in duplicate bridge.


Shi started playing bridge in 2011 when she picked it up over learning to fly planes as a much-needed new hobby after a break-up.[1] While she is well-versed in many systems, she has a fondness for playing TOSR (transfer-oriented systemic relay),[2] a form of Precision Club.[3] Shi became a Grand Life Master in December 2019 at the San Francisco NABC.[citation needed]

Shi has now admitted to cheating at online bridge through self-kibitzing[4] and has been suspended by the American Contract Bridge League pending a misconduct hearing.[5]
