About Bridge Hall of Famer Mike Passell
Mike Passell has been one of North America’s leading players for more than three decades, and is currently one of the highest master-point holders among living ACBL members with more than 64,000. He won the McKenney Trophy (now the Barry Crane Top 500) in 1976 and is a perennial contender in the annual master point race. He was inducted into the ACBL Hall of Fame in 2008.
The Dallas resident learned to play bridge during a high school vacation while watching his older brother, William, teach bridge classes. He became the youngest life master at the time.
Mike has an enviable record in high-level competition, including the international level. He was a member of the winning Bermuda Bowl team in 1979 after placing second in the world championship two years earlier. Mike has numerous North American championships to his credit, including three victories in the Reisinger Board-a-Match Teams, three in the Spingold Knockout Teams and two in the Vanderbilt Knockout Teams. He has won hundreds of regional championships and has nearly 800 Blue Ribbon qualifications.
Mike and his wife, Nancy, are among the few married couples who are both world champions.
