Join Bridge Winners
Statement from Jimmy Cayne

Jimmy Cayne has been a very close friend and a mentor to me for as long as I can remember. He is also the captain of the team that won the 2015 Spingold with Fisher and Schwartz. In light of the recent allegations, many people have been asking me, “What’s Jimmy going to do?” Jimmy is not the type of guy who likes to publicize his decisions; in speaking with him privately, he approved the following statement to be published on Bridge Winners:


As captain of my 2015 Spingold team, I make this statement with heavy heart.

In the last few weeks I have been made aware of charges leveled against Lotan Fisher and Ron Schwartz, a pair on my team. The most recent published hands lead me to conclude that Fisher-Schwartz may not continue to play on my team unless they are cleared of all charges which might be filed against them.

I am completely on board forfeiting my title, masterpoints, and seeding points for the 2015 Spingold if the ACBL will allow me to do so.

Jimmy Cayne
