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.
