About the Players

Marty Fleisher
   Born in the Big Apple, Marty learned to play bridge at the age of eight by observing his parents and uncle. His biggest thrill is a tie between winning the Intercollegiate Championships at the age of 18 and his victory in the 2000 Cavendish Pairs. However, he considers his "greatest achievement" an absolute toss up between his marriage to his wife of twenty-two years and getting to the finals of the Grand Nationals in 1976 (at age 17 the youngest player to reach a National Championship final). But there was a famine of over twenty-eight years until he won the Swiss Teams at the 2004 Fall Nationals. It is interesting to note it may have been the longest stretch between 1st and 2nd for anyone. Indeed, it took Marty's teammates in the National Swiss (Gavin Wolpert and Vince Demuy) only one National to transcend from bridesmaid to bride! Marty enjoys few leisure moments for hobbies other than bridge as his professional commitment as an Employee Benefits Attorney and investment advisor is very time-consuming.
Michael Kamil

A New Jerseyite all his life, Mike credits his love of the game to his first bridge partner, his mother, who professed to him as a young lad that every hand is an adventure. Together they won several New York area Regionals and their capturing the 1980 Las Vegas NABC Flight B Mixed Pair (besting over 1300 pairs) was his biggest thrill. However, the high point thus far in his bridge career was winning the 1990 Vanderbilt with Gerard, Morse, Sutherlin, Pollack and Sanders. From 1985-2003 Mike was a stock options trader. Presently he is a "sometimes" professional player but devotes his energy toward building a philatelic business on Ebay. Most of his leisure time is spent with his wife and their ten-year-old twin daughters. Mike modestly confessed to a 'modicum of success with each of his partners' (including Mike Moss, Mike Becker, Christal Henner-Welland and Marty Fleisher) but only a deep rooted love of bridge could have evoked the words 'I love playing regardless of partner's or teammates' abilities.'

Bjorn Fallenius
   Originally from Malmo, Sweden, Bjorn Fallenius, a bridge professional and “former comptroller,” now lives in New York City, where he runs a bridge club with his wife. He represented Sweden in world competition in the late 80s and 90s, winning the European Teams in 1987 and finishing second in 1999. He also won the Cavendish in 1988. Since coming to live in the United States, he has continued to compile a strong record, winning the Reisinger in 1991 and 2001, the Open BAM teams in 1991, the Spingold in 2003 and the Vanderbilt in 2007. A WBF World Grand Master, Bjorn captured the Fishbein trophy for most masterpoints won at the 2006 North American Bridge Championship in Chicago.
