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.

The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
In response to the comment above by Mr. Wiley .... I give a damn!! I had two husbands (Norman Kay and Bobby Wolff) who were blatantly screwed by the “revered” Blue Team. It is time that the bridge universe learned the truth about the ongoing ridiculous protection by the WBF to ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
It has not done much good for many decades, but recently the ACBL (through knowledgeable committees) have started to turn the tide. Most people protect their own flock. More organizations should rise above it and at least have credible experts examine the evidence and determine whether further action is warranted ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Mike, I am delighted you posted your enormously popular statement above .. but it was Garozzo (not Belladonna) to whom Bobby spoke in the stairwell adjacent to the floor where the match was being played. He requested that they not bring their cigarette lighters to the table when they returned for ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Understood, Richard. However, i strongly believe cultures and nationalities have played toooooo many partial roles in making biased decisions. Time to turn over the reigns!
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
No .. but it is high time the WBF took responsibility for their indiscretions and a new group of open-minded, clear-thinking, impartial, unbiased, honorable individuals who take pride in our once wonderful game came to the fore!
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
With apologies to my longtime marvelous buddy, Eddie Kantar and old dear pal Eric Kokish. Heaven knows .. they have both made so many incredible contributions to our game over several decades. I guess the reason for my blindsightedness is because my late husband, Norman Kay, played with Edgar Kaplan for ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Richard, I understand your position, but most avid readers of this site would recognize that the initials EK stand for Edgar Kaplan. However, British bridge devotees may think that EK may stands for Ewart Kempson.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
I am curious to learn what position the American Representatives will take when Avon’s masterpiece is released in Orlando. Mr. Rona has charmed many bridge officials. It is my fervent hope that Alvin will take this developed problem to his fellow representatives so that ACBL bridge can be proud ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Mike, I am adding a LOVE to my “Like.” Thank you.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Thanks for your support, Ken! But .. it is an underbid to overstate one’s case when the words fall on deaf ears.
