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.

Massimo Lanzarotti readmitted to the ACBL?
Melanie, It is obvious the disgustingly blind cultural alliance of the WBF President is the main cause of the problem. He has been wearing blinders for years!

Greco Wins 2018 Player of the Year
I have recollections of my late husband Norman Kay and I meeting on board several flights to the Nationals from Philadelphia with a talented upcoming lad named Eric Greco. That was eons ago! I am absolutely delighted with your latest achievement. You are a credit to the game! Cheers, Judy

Should Monaco Decline 2014 EBL Gold Medal?
Bobby, your intended humorous reference to Section C went totally over my head .. until dumb me realized that ‘C’ stood for Cheaters!

Jeff, I totally agree with you! Thank you for speaking out! This all began when my husband Bobby Wolff, former President of the ACBL and World Bridge Federation, tried to explain the early workings of bridge in the 80s .. no more, no less. It was then the tornado of false ...
