This tennis star uses bridge games as opportunities for relaxation. When she travels, she likes to find nearby bridge clubs and join in. She once said, 'No matter where I go, I can always make new friends at the bridge table'

She wrote the introduction to Audrey Grant's 'The club series, Introduction to Bridge!' She's also teamed up with another famous player in an email course designed to help teach bridge to newcomers (bonus point for this player too)

King of Hearts

The Suicide King
King Hearts


The king of hearts is sometimes called the Suicide King because the sword he holds behind his head might be visualized as being used to stab himself in the head. This design evolved from earlier designs where he was holding a battle axe, but over the course of copies being made, the axe head was omitted, and the weapon changed to a curiously positioned sword.

The King of Hearts might represent: Charlemagne, a European king, who lived from 747 to 814 AD.

Charlemagne attained a status of almost mythical proportions in the West. Among other things, he was responsible for uniting most of Europe under his rule by power of the sword, for helping to restore the Western Roman Empire and becoming its first emperor, and for facilitating a cultural and intellectual renaissance, the ramifications of which were felt in Europe for centuries afterward.

 The King of heart is also of course the husband of the queen of hearts in Alice's adventures in wonderland.
