The Aces on Bridge: Sunday, June 20th, 2021

Hi Dear Mr Wolff
The following is response of Brian Glubok on yesterday’s post at

Brian Glubok
A spot-on, lucid, insightful comment from Mr. Wolff with multiple cold, hard truths contained within.

Perhaps this sheds some light on why I lost so many finals to him over the years!

It should come as no surprise that so few of those with a predisposition to cheat care much about the majesty of our sensational pass-time – this is an era where “caring only about yourself”, from Bill Cosby on down, is the societal norm.

Bridge may be stronger than all that pulls it down. We can hope.


On a technical note, there is great insight present when Wolfie writes (paraphrasing) “What matters more at top-level team bridge is how bad the bad players are, not how good the good players are.”


PS: RW: Edgar occasionally appears to me in a dream, if he has any messages for you I’ll pass them along here.

And my comment

Dear Adavikolanu,

Because of you, Brian and Edgar’s ghost, I can guess why this Sunday morning awakening is so special.

Thanks for your off-the-charts kindness. If only the whole wide world could follow suit in life, as well as bridge and especially you, manage to do.
