In the world of contract bridge, there is no one who comes close to matching Mike Lawrence's combined record as a player, author, and teacher. Mike started playing bridge while attending the University of California. During a chemistry experiment, he caused an explosion which for three weeks meant he was unable to use his writing hand. The result was that he could not take his finals and was instructed to take them during the summer session instead. Not wishing to waste his time on campus, Mike discovered the card room where he proved more adept at bridge than he was as a chemistry student. It was not long before bridge became his major interest. As a player, Mike has won three world championships three times was second. In ACBL play, he as won over 20,000 masterpoints and more than twenty major National Championships, including more than ten wins in the Vanderbilt, Reisinger, and Spingold.
