Given that Harry Fishbein died in 1976, I guess you’ve been playing even longer than have I.

The only big name I know of who I have played against was Frances Hinden in the Hubert Phillips (a mixed teams UK competition) over a decade ago.

I used to play with a guy in OKC who used the Fishbein convention - and now with all the wild preempts it may be time to resurrect it.

I played against Agustin Madala once he partnered the (at the moment) future president of Argentina, Mauricio Macri.

Besides playing for fun, most people also like to play bridge to win
