Miguel Reygadas was born on April 18, 1946 in Mexico City and, in all likelihood, was the strongest Mexican player of all time.
The son of a doctor, he learned bridge when he was 12 and immediately revealed a strong predisposition for the game, so much so that already at 22 he represented his National team in the 1968 World Championships.
This performance caught the attention of George Rosenkranz who called him to join his team.
ACBL Grand Life Master, from 1978 onwards represented his country in 8 consecutive Olympics and Bermuda Bowl.
Always a bridge pro, married and divorced twice, his only great love in his life was his beloved daughter Agnes.
A gentleman with an old-fashioned bearing, at the green table he was perfectly at ease with both the experts and the sponsors.
An inveterate gambler, he especially loved the game of craps.
Miguel passed away in the Mexican capital on September 25, 2021 due to pneumonia apparently unrelated to COVID.
