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.

RIP Harold Lilie
If ever a funeral could be considered a love-in, Harold Lilie’s would be the prime example. The room was filled with close friends, family and many who knew Harold just casually and admired him. The rave notices of his warmth, respect and generosity went on for over an hour ...

To the Bridge Winners Community (Double Dummy Day Update)
John, It brought a smile to my lips .. with your mention of bridge at UVA from where my daughter graduated (and learned the rudiments of the game herself). I actually was introduced to bridge at Columbia University the summer before I graduated from Temple University some 64 years ago. I ...
A potential cheating story without any clues, how about that BW?
Hi Avon, Toilet rumors far from shock me. Wow .. what detailing!!!
Re: Nic Hammond's "Detecting Cheating at Bridge"
Steve, I get ill at the sound of the letters of the present ‘WBF’ and their blind followers. In my mind (and those of many well respected experts), they represent the evil that may eventually kill our once-majestic game!
Re: Nic Hammond's "Detecting Cheating at Bridge"
It is sad that high level bridge table has sunken to this. ... making bridge a game of total isolation. The creators would turn over in their graves!!
