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.

Hi Tom, I attribute it to the culture of their surroundings and others have been protected for too many years as well. Enough said!

I think many children learned at home looking over their parents' shoulders. Unfortunately, I was not one of the lucky ones. I was in my last year of college and regretted not being introduced to our majestic mind game till then as it trains our brain in so many areas ...
College Spirit
Congratulations to the ACBL for this encouraging news! Bobby planted that dream in the heads of the Chinese government and they took it from there! However, It took them over ten years to get the ball rolling .. but look at them now. 200,000,000 young people in China alone ...
What is he thinking about?
If he had to overtake, is it not unethical to think rather than make the only play possible without reneging? Am I missing something?

Hi Don, we really miss seeing you. Seems like an eternity ago since we last crossed paths. Sounds like all is well and you are still very much on top of things! Cheers, Judy

Never mind question. Just got the answer.
Convention Chart Revisions
I think it is a sensational effort to clarify issues. I have not had an opportunity to read it thoroughly. Is it public knowledge who served on the committee?
