Favorite swindles and other turns of events
In the early 70's I picked up something like xxx, xx, x, KQTxxxx in a regional pairs: Pass, Pass to me so I bid the obvious 1NT: Pass, 2C, Pass Pass Pass with Judy Tucker in the passout seat with a puzzled look at her insane opponent. Down 1 ...
Richie Schwartz, R.I.P.
Richard had a math degree. In the 60's and 70's he worked for a defense contractor as a programmer while pursuing his hobby as a gambler evenings at harness tracks eventually graduating to a full time gambler. At the harness track Richie was known as "the hawk" for ...

Boye Shows the Jack of Spades
I played rubber with Barbara for many years at both the Cavendish and Mayfair clubs in Manhattan. I guarantee Barbara was not a "golden retriever" at bridge. I do not recall Barbara ever doing anything ridiculous. In fact Barbara was very solid as a partner an opponent. I can not ...
