Don't think it was Asimov (who was a member of the Wolfe pack) but was Stout at a meeting of the Baker Street Irregulars (I might be very wrong)

A LOT better than the one with Conrad. There were palm trees in NYC and Archie wore a cloth cap. I met Conrad at a World Chili Cookoff (we were both judges) and when I greeted him as Mr. Wolfe, he lambasted me saying the show was good (he was wrong) and that Wolfe fans killed it.

Being a very active member of the Wolfe Pack (society of aficionados of the Nero Wolfe books authored by Rex Stout) I knew the answer but wanted to see if anyone else came up with it. I was pretty sure Michael would since when he lived in the NYC area he attended several Wolfe Pack events. (www.nerowolfe.org). Hope other NW fans will look at our web site and join the Pack. I once did a study of all the times card games are mentioned in the books and there were many references to bridge (alas more to poker)

I too received a high spade lead, so won ace, played a heart to the king. Won the diamond return, won the ace of H and took the club finesse.

Given vision issues I can no longer read the Bridge World. Can someone post a link to the piece and the editor's note, so we who have vision issues might be able to read this? Thanks in advance

Kaufman played bridge almost non sop on trains from NYC to LA. One time a novice person cut into the game. Kaufman asked him when he learned the game? He continued I know it was today but what time today?

Someone once asked him how he should have played a hand? Kaufman replied under an assumed name.
