Steven Fine is a member of Gamblers Anonymous (GA) and writes a column in the ACBL magazine. He says that GA changed his life. The concepts of that organization made him a better bridge player. It taught him to be calm, the attribute necessary for a good player who can focus on each card and is a prerequisite for good play

Thank you goes out to all players who show up to play another day; may we live long and fruitful lives.
