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.

Forgive and forget?
Thanks, Steve. .. for the perfect prompt! Since Bobby retired, few have gotten involved. The bridge world is fortunate that Boye has stepped up to the plate and undertaken the leviathan task of trying to right the wrongs buried for decades. He provides a ray of hope for the future of ...
Forgive and forget?
Hi Patrick, I agree! It is obvious Boye has taken up the slack caused by the retirement (or death) of many of the top bridge administrators. His passion and determination to improve the future of our game screams out but in many cases, has fallen on deaf ears. I consider ...
Forgive and forget?
No guarantees! But if we don't try .. we'll never know. We cannot resuscitate former bridge players. What is your other option to keep bridge alive for the next generation??? If it worked so well across the ocean, why not here?
Forgive and forget?
Many bridge advocates are sooo concerned that bridge is a dying game .. and with good reason. Why doesn't the ACBL DIRECT SOME OF THEIR ATTENTION AND ENERGY TO INTRODUCING TEACHING BRIDGE IN OUR SCHOOLS HERE AS IN ASIA and 11 EUROPEAN NATIONS. COMPARE OUR membership (170,000+) to how ...
Matt Smith Promotion
Wow, Matt! What a fan club .. but Bobby and I can understand why. Your contributions via the equity devoted to our technical aspect of our game is fantastic .. but more kudos for how well you so skillfully handle the human element! No one ever said dealing with bridge players was ...

One of the most glorious and popular victories of all time!! Back in my Philadelphia days, I enjoyed the younger version of Brian and John who were just getting started. Bobby was right on target! If you can get your hands on a copy of "The Lone Wolff," read page ...

Learn Bridge in a day marketing
I can't help on the marketing end, but can attest to and rave about Patty's presentation, reception and the popularity of the idea .. when she appeared here in Vegas a few years ago! Her love of, and dedication, to the game is overwhelming!
