Micky B has 10,000 points!!

Hard work, persistence and talent pay off. Mike Bandler crossed over the 10,000 masterpoint barrier this week in Palm Springs. That makes him a Platinum Life Master. He called me this afternoon to give me the news, noting that his team had yet to lose a KO match so far in the tournament. Mike is there with Linda, of course, as well as Bob and Nancy Munson and Danny and Linda Friedman.

This is not the end of the trail, one hopes. The beauty of bridge is that the game can never be truly mastered, we are all still learning. I once asked Grant Baze about achieving mastery. He replied that he still made as many mistakes as he ever did, they just got smaller with time.

So Mike will still play, and still learn. And so will we all. Congratulations my friend.
