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.

Bridge Magazine RIP?
Yehudit, It might be of interest to learn that Bobby's Aces on Bridge daily columns featured in over 100 newspapers universally (via United Feature Syndicate) appear on his Bridgeblogging Internet site exactly two weeks hence .. courtesy of Master Point Press .. entitled Aces on Bridge. His byline emanated back in ...
Bridge Magazine RIP?
Yehudit: Everyone has choices to make .. Chocolate or Vanilla? Dress Pants or Jeans? Formal Shoes or Sneakers? Kosher or Treif? I think you were unduly 'hard' on Frank Stewart. He simply intended to address the suggestion that bridge columns in the print media are dying out-- something he can comment ...
One Law for the Rich?
Ellis, I support many of your grievances re our administration. I am not responding about any of the incidents you alluded to (although I cannot argue with your reaction)! With the exception of most recent appeal committee selections, I am opposed to many other boards and people in high positions ...
In other news...
With this latest Berlin revelation, it only confirms what I have observed for years .. some people will stop at nothing to come out on top! And, as Sam Goldwyn infers .. the beat continues!
Showing the Four of Spades
No need for an apology. Can't believe I did not pick it up on sight and immediately appreciate it!

To: John Miller We have alll heard of 'Dear John' letters .. but this one is very special, indeed! I had seen your name on the BW site and when I referenced it, I found was no mention of Philly, so I abandoned the thought that you were one in the ...

Sorry, John, I was half asleep when I responded. Thanks for pointing it out. NO ONE loves a play on words better than moi! However, the back and forths casting doubt on Avon's presentation and potential conclusions and accuracy have been prejudged. I have been on the scene since ...
Showing the Four of Spades
No, John, the specific one that immediately comes to mind was determined .. based on power and influence of the culprit ..... and fear of retaliation. I don't want to pre-empt Avon's efforts but the bridge world is in for an awakening.
Showing the Four of Spades
After scouring the many queries about guilt and innocence, did anyone give any thought to which parties should have the grave responsibility of deciding 'innocence' or 'guilt?' Certainly .. not a lay court or lay jury who do not have bridge expertise. That would be a laughable travesty of justice. Nobody ...
