New Silver LM says "Partnership is the Key"


April, 2021
By Fred Shubert

I remember earning my first masterpoint in June 2016 with Joan Stanchek. Now almost 5 years later, I hit that thousandth masterpoint. I wish I could play more but with a full–time and a part–time job, bridge is more of a luxury. It's been an exciting journey of good partners and opponents, but one person was across the table from me on most of this journey and was there when I earned my Life Master, Bronze Life Master and Silver Life Master ranks: Richard Podkowik. I may have earned the ranks, but he deserves the credit for putting up with me and mentoring me along the way. Having a great partner makes this awesome game even better!

Best Regards,

Fred Shubert
