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.

Thank you, Marshall. Understandable is an underbid. Sometimes fire must be fought with fire!

Hi Richard, interested or disinterested .. how could anyone in my position not be outraged about an attack on someone like Bobby who has devoted his entire bridge life to the betterment of the game pro bono (and not react to such an obvious personal bitter remark)! Sorry .. I am just ...

Chris, I think your are joking! i can testify in living color, at 86+ he is sharp as a tack and would advise your being a teammate .. not an opponent!!!! Cheers, Judy

Maybe some of the laws protectors should wake up and smell the stench of the lilies (as opposed to the roses)! The ridiculousness of the bouquets and plaudits to the obviously cheating Blue Team says it all.
