Peter  BOYD

 

 Nato a Washington nel 1950, Peter ha passato tutta la sua vita nel District of Columbia.

 Ha imparato il bridge alle scuole superiori, si è laureato ad Harvard nel 1972 ed ha percorso tutta la sua carriera lavorativa nel mondo della programmazione dei computer.

 Questo non gli ha impedito di divenire un giocatore di spicco che ha vinto, tra l'altro, la Reisinger del 1986, 3 Vanderbilt (1987, 1991, 1997), 2 Mitchell  (1989, 1994), i Jacoby del 1986 e del 2012 ed i Grand National Teams del 1984, 1988 e 1992.

 Sul piano internazionale il suo maggior successo è stato la conquista della Rosenblum del 1986 e l'argento nella Senior Bowl del 2011.

 Andato in pensione, divide il suo tempo tra il bridge, il poker ed il cinema.

 La sua partnership con Steve Robinson è stata una delle più durature del bridge a stelle  e strisce.

  Nel 2009 ha ricevuto il Sidney H. Lazard Jr. Sportsmanship Award.

  Born in the nation's capitol, Peter has lived in the D.C. area all his life.

 Serious in nature, he is a true gentleman in every sense of the word, and is dedicated to the lofty ideals of the game.

He learned to play while in junior high school but his love of the game did not deter his pursuit of an education, graduating from Harvard in 1972.

Peter's determination and hard work produced one of the longest-lasting successful uninterrupted partnerships with Hall of Famer Steve Robinson which has spanned twenty-six years.

Peter retired as a computer programmer and enjoys his life as a part-time bridge pro and self-employed game consultant.

His leisure time is spent playing internet poker and watching good movies.

Though he has won many NABC including three Vanderbilt, one Reisinger, three Grand Nationals and two Jacoby, his greatest achievement was witnessed in Miami in 1986, capturing the prestigious Rosenblum Cup, one of the three major world team championships.

His last international victory is the silver medal in Senior Bowl 2011.

In 2009 has received the Sidney H. Lazard Jr. Sportsmanship Award.
