Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Dallas Aces (initially the U.S. Aces, then later just the Aces) were the world's first professional bridge team, organized by Dallas businessman Ira Corn in 1968. Corn was determined to return bridge supremacy to the United States, after the long domination of the formidable Italian Blue Team. Corn recruited James Jacoby and Bobby Wolff, then Billy Eisenberg, Bobby Goldman, and Michael Lawrence, paying salaries ($800 per month for single players, $950 for married ones) and expenses for major tournaments. Bob Hamman at first declined an invitation, but became the sixth member of the team in 1969. Jacoby paired with Wolff, Eisenberg with Goldman, and Lawrence with Hamman.show more
