Join Bridge Winners
Mike Albert

One of Omaha’s top players and most colorful characters died unexpectedly this week:  Mike Albert. I met Mike shortly after I began attending tournaments.  Always fun, warm, creative at the table and a very nice guy, Mike will be missed by many.

Joe Verdirame shares this information about Mike.

“Most of you have probably heard of the sudden passing of Mike Albert on Monday night. Mike was a big part of the bridge community in Omaha for a long time.  On Wednesday, Sept. 12th, we will have a special Swiss Teams event at the House of Cards to celebrate his many contributions to bridge. Details regarding this event will follow shortly. 

There will be a graveside ceremony for Mike at the Mount Sinai Cemetery, 300 Helen St., Sioux City, Iowa, at 2 PM, Friday, August 24th.  Also Friday night, August 24th, there will be a reception at the Swanson Towers party room, 8405 Indian Hills Dr., Omaha, at 7 PM.”
