A Sad Note

Marc Franklin passed away in his sleep Sunday July 5th at 2 am at the ago of 88. He was a bright spot in the Portland bridge world for the several years that I knew him here and I always enjoyed his wit and wisdom both at and away from the table.

Marc is quite famous outside of the bridge world and I am certain that you will be able to read about his exploits in several national papers once they have had time to assemble the material. He came later to serious competitive bridge and amongst his proudest achievements at the game is winning an open pairs in a regional with his partner Mary Lou Moriarty. Larry Cohen gleefully announced his success by explaining that in all of his many years of playing tournament bridge he had never seen an 87 year old man win an open pairs with the level of competition that he saw. 

Amongst my own personal memories of Marc are some wonderful evenings playing bridge at one of he and Mary Lou's various residences in and around the Pearl District. It was also a delight to play against them at the club as they would provide a challenge both with (usually appropriate) aggressive bidding and deceptive play and defense.

BBO Alerts

Jim Kahan has helpfully created a document outlining the difference between alerting online and alerting in face to face bridge.
