Hollywood Squares - Bridge Style

Was Eric Rodwell a classical pianist before becoming a professional bridge player?

Which Square Celebrity won a national pair event with Zia?

What convention is the bridge world’s favorite?

And – the ubiquitous – who has had more marriages? Elizabeth Taylor or Grant Baze?

Nine of the bridge world’s most glittering stars entertained and confounded in the ACBL’s version of Hollywood Squares Sunday night, March 15th, at the Spring NABC in Houston, Texas. Mike Passell, #2 on the ACBL masterpoint list, with over 62,000 masterpoints, charmingly MC’d the evening. Contestants sparred with one another, attempting to determine whether their celebrity spoke the truth or delivered a con.

Loads of players enjoyed Texas-style cookies as Jill Meyers, John Sutherlin, Lisa Berkowitz, Dave Berkowitz, Chris Compton, Shawn Quinn, George Jacobs, Eddie Wold and Eric Rodwell spoke the truth or snookered with their answers. Did the audience and contestants have more hilarity – or did the Hollywood Square experts? Check out the photos and you be the judge!
