about me

I still love to play, altho I do worry about the future of our game; I am a neurologist, with a headache center just North of Chicago, and avid hockey player.....

I have won a # of national team titles, including the Trials in 1996(represented the US in Rhodes that year).....

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
WOLFSON is Senior USA2
Nice going...good luck in France.......

What is the bridge system that has most impressed you?
