The bridge world has some famous bridge families. We see multiple generations producing champions of the highest order.
Perhaps a new dynasty is in the making: the Ryman and Wolpert clans. Multiple champion husband and wife Gavin Wolpert and Jenny Ryman Wolpert, both from well known bridge families, now are training the next generation with their adorable new baby: Danielle Wolpert.
One morning, prior to competition, I captured Jenny and Dani at the table. Jenny reports that Dani is fascinated with bidding boxes, and uses a set at home as a constant toy. Dani seemed ready to bid a grand slam here in Reno!
If you hear about Dani capturing a Blue Ribbon title twenty years from now, just as her folks did at a tender age – do not be shocked! Between Dani’s genes and training – she rates to be a super star!
