Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fritzi Gordon (1905 or 1916 - 1992) was one half of the most famous and tempestuous female partnership in bridge. She was the second woman to attain the rank of World Grandmaster, her partner Rixi Markus being the first. She won four world titles, seven European championships and numerous other tournament victories. Her brothers Hans and Paul Leist became, respectively, British and Argentinian international bridge players. Gordon was born Frederika Leist in Vienna to middle-class Jewish parents. After school, she became the buyer for a Salzburg store, married Paul Gordon and moved to Graz. The Nazi Anschluss disrupted her life, as it did to so many others. She fled to London, though the details of this abrupt transition are not known.
