15-round championship fight
Charles Goren
November 19, 1962
In Phoenix, Ariz. this week 30 bridge champions, including myself and my partner, Helen Sobel, square off at the International Team Trials to see which three pairs will represent the U.S. in the World Championships in Italy. The 15-round match involves six days—and 280 hands—of the toughest possible competition, and it is noteworthy that of the six winners last year only one was over 40. This year some of the youngsters still have an excellent chance, including the youngest of them all, 26-year-old Arthur Robinson, who plays with fellow Philadelphian Robert Jordan.
