"The bizarre world of cards is a world of pure power politics where rewards and punishments are meted out immediately." -- Ely Culbertson
Ely Culbertson (July 22, 1891 – December 27, 1955) was the most significant American Contract bridge personality. He played a major role in the early development of the game, and was widely regarded as 'the man who made contract bridge'. He was a great showman who became rich, was highly extravagant, and lost and gained fortunes several times over. His autobiography, The Strange Lives of One Man is, perhaps fittingly, the most extraordinary ever written by a card-player.
