    Where did you find the name of my new bridge partner? Did we get some kind of writeup for our regional title? For your info, he's as smart a person as I have ever met. He's an optical physisist who has a passion for creating precise bridge bidding systems. He designed the system I had so much success with when I played three to four decades ago with former partner Robert Radwin. He has been happily married for almost a half century and he has a couple of kids and some grandkids. He's about the only friend I have who is of normal weight (all of the other ones like to eat). He's as far from a loser as you will ever see.

    • Did you ever hear of this new-fangled thing called the Internet? It's even more new-fangled than push button phones.

      Not only Detractor, who may be posting from Italy already, but myself & probably many others had no trouble finding the optical physicist with an interest in bridge on the Net.

      • It's perfectly obvious that the info came from the Net but the $64,000 question is exactly WHERE on the net do you find such stuff? When I got my name in the New York Times in late March of 1982, it was for a truly significant achievement - a Top Five finish in a NATIONAL tournament. This win was nice to be sure but it was only in a dime-a-dozen regional and i certainly didn't get my name in the NYT for that one. The Los Angeles Times has very little bridge coverage and they would never mention results in just a regional event.

        You know, I have just a bare-bones computer and it didn't come with a users manual of exactly how to find out certain things. You have a big advantage on me as obviously you do have such a manual. Who should I call to get this manual and to then be able to get the kind of info that you get?
