Posted on 14 July 2011

leggi in italiano»

Starting today Neapolitan Club will publish a series of notes written for us by Rhoda Walsh on the system “2 over 1 game forcing.”  The work, edited by Paolo Enrico  Garrisi, is divided into 5 chapters, and has as its object one of the cornerstones of the entire system: 1Notrump game forcing response.  Rhoda Walsh, attorney, is a bridge theorist and champion: she’s WBF Grand Master and an ACBL Grand Life Master. She placed third in 1968 World Women’s Team; in the same year she won all three US National Women’s events: two pair events and one team event.

 7th in all time masterpoint list for women; author of “Recap Bridge”. With Paul Soloway, John Swanson, and her ex-husband Richard Walsh, Rhoda is one of the co-developers of the 2 over 1 Game Forcing System, formerly known as the Walsh System (see in “Brief history of 2 over 1 Response”).

 Neapolitan Club already published “1♣-1♦ sequences”. (click here)

Rhoda today plays professionally in tournaments with students and teaches private groups.
