Andrzej Wilkosz  (www.pzbs.pl)December 29, 2012 Andrzej Wilkosz passed away at the age of 77. He was a great Polish bridge player, and during his career he won many important national and international tournaments. Amongst the most recent ones we recall the victory in Southampton (Bermuda) 2000 World Championships, and Tenerife 2001 European Championships. In both cases Wilkosz represented the Senior Polish team. Wilkosz will also be remembered for a convention he invented, “Wilkosz 2D”, a variation of the Multi 2D. This preemptive opening bid shows 7 to 11 points and a 5-5 distribution, where one of the two suits must be a major.

Wilkosz was versatile and many-talented. He was an engineer and researcher at Krakow’s University of Science and Technology (AGH). For his studies not only did he receive many departmental awards, but also he was awarded by the State the prestigious Gold Cross of Honour, in the field of metallurgy.
