W B F PRESIDENT OPENS HIS MIND 
(1) Many of the wealthy players who sponsor teams and the individual bridge professionals do little - if anything- to sponsor the game. 
(2) Many National Bridge Organisations focus too heavily on top 10% of players and don’t understand their role to market & promote at all levels and provide programs to ensure the continuity of the game and that some collective effort by many of these bridge sponsors could raise the profile of this game beyond its current low level.

PETER BOYD & STEVE ROBINSON  

Here you view the long enduring partnership of Peter Boyd and Steve Robinson . 

NABC Spring 2014 at Dallas. they played for the 100th time as a pair.

The two rank among the most successful partnerships in ACBL history. They have 15 North American championships playing together, most recently the Keohane North American Swiss Teams in Phoenix last fall. In 1986, they achieved a world championship as members of the winning team in the Rosenblum Cup. Their team, including Woolsey, Ed Manfield, Robert Lipsitz and Neil Silverman, was not even seeded in the event.

The fact that they can still laugh about disasters speaks to their commitment as friends and as bridge partners.

Both say they try to keep a good atmosphere at the table, and they know that perfection in unattainable. The key is either player’s reaction when something goes wrong.

Says Robinson, “We both make mistakes, but we go on to the next board.”

Adds Boyd, “We are still going strong. We’re not ready to stop.”
Boyd and Robinson get along in part because each is easy going by nature. Says Robinson, “We tolerate each other’s flaws.”
