Lew_Stansby

Lew Stansby has more than 30 North American Bridge Championships, 5 Open World Championships, and 2 Senior World Championships. Lew has won at least one NABC event in each of the last 6 decades. He also assembled an impressive 20-year streak from 1989 to 2008, where he finished 1st or 2nd in an NABC event every single year.

Most of his bridge success has been in partnership with Chip Martel, his regular partner since 1977. However, his wife and best friend JoAnna Stansby , also partnered him in several of his successes.

At various times he has worked as a systems programmer and a commodity trader, but is now primarily a professional bridge player.

When not playing bridge, Lew likes to hike, and will happily play almost any other game, with an affinity for board games, fantasy baseball, and Barbu.
