about me

I have been playing bridge since one summer at Columbia University in 1955 where I saw four students screaming and throwing cards at each other outdoors under a beach umbrella. Intriguing! Became addicted to duplicate and play twice a week, and at local sectionals and regionals with my husband, Bobby Wolff. Stopped going to Nationals four years ago. It is cumbersome flying, expensive, uncomfortable and the general aura of the bridge world, IMHO, has changed for the worse. I suppose if Bobby was enticed by an especially good team, we would change our minds, but life in Vegas is perfect -- so why give up a great life.

Danny Sprung's bidding problem: AJ63 64 K4 KJT63
Danny: Include the fact that partner made a blatant 20 second hitch before passing. Without the huddle, of course, you have no restrictions!!
$375K ACBL Boondoggle & Hawaii Fallout!
That would have been nice information to have been provided earlier. Thanks, Michael.
$375K ACBL Boondoggle & Hawaii Fallout!
Hi Ray, As to your second paragraph, as usual .. you are ALWAYS practical and on point. I think the ACBL (in order to keep their head/s above water) must rethink the potential impending Honolulu crisis by making better accommodations to their potential visitors to prevent a worse crisis than ...
$375K ACBL Boondoggle & Hawaii Fallout!
I totally agree, Gary. Those who would enjoy it the most are players who reside in cold November climates and are enticed to warm Hawaii? In order to avoid another bridge debacle like Orlando (which sounded like a nightmare from what I have read), though not an ACBL disaster .. perhaps ...
#saynotocheats
Bobby, even worse, nothing has been done about F/N being removed from the No. 1/2 rankings on the WBF top accomplisher's list. What a humiliating example of a disgrace to our once majestic game .. but it all goes along with simply protecting one's brethren!!!
Open Orlando Discussion Thread
Steve, Are you being serious, funny or sarcastic? That is undoubtedly the last subject they would want to discuss!!
Open Orlando Discussion Thread
On another Orlando subject .. What was the reaction to the release of Avon Wilsmore's book?
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Hi Georgiana: Knowing how much you love, enjoy and respect the game .. you will turn the pages in amazement. I have known about the "situation" (to put it mildly) since I married the late Norman Kay in 1963 and I have been awaiting this day for fifty-five years. Congratulations to ...
