Barbara Saltsman, from Montreal, has achieved the level of « Grand Life Master » a few months ago. It was a tremendous achievement to have accumulated the 10 000 master points associated with this level, in addition to the Canadian Women’s Teams Championship in 1985, 1995, 1996 and 1998.
From Mark Yudin, an occasional partner: Barbara Saltsman has for a long time been a name to know in Montreal bridge circles. She has represented Canada with distinction in world bridge competitions many times. She has been a popular bridge teacher for many years in the Montreal English speaking bridge community. So it is not surprising that she achieved the 10,000 point plateau.
