about me

I have been playing bridge since the age of 10 more for fun purposes. It was only when I joined the Federal Bank in India that I was exposed to duplicate bridge at the Bombay Suburban Bridge Association. After coming to the US in 1998 - it was in 2001 that I came across a "Bridge Studio" at my current home town in Overland Park and signed up as an ACBL member. There was no looking back after that. I am very competitive when it comes to bridge but at the same time posses a good sense of humor.

Finally, made that elusive ranking of a Life Master. April 7th 2017 will go down in the record books when I earned 2.50 Black as a Overall First at the club game. It is not the win but the fact that I made Life Master, Bronze LM and Silver LM all in one day. Befitting the fact that I started playing bridge in Unit 131 at Carol Calkins Ace of Bridge Club in Oct 2001 and made the achievement at her bridge game.
