    Irv was a regular at the bridge tables on First Burton and was an avid, skilled player and clever guy. In those days bridge was a sort of poker substitute that involved a bit of trash talk, varying degrees of seriousness, and sometimes money changing hands. Spectators weren't uncommon.

    I remember asking Irv how he could afford to play so often, and he said that bridge was his only form of entertainment and indulgence, so he figured any losses were like buying beer or movie tickets.

    I learned bridge from Irv and was mesmerized by his skill. He had a unique way of sorting his cards that I still use today. l searched on-line for him and saw his occupation listed as "bridge teacher on cruise ships." I would have taken that cruise.
