Kitty Teltscher was born in Bombay, of Hungarian parents, and educated in Tel Aviv and Vienna. She came to England in 1963 to go to St Clare's College, Oxford and while there met her first husband, David McLintock, an Oxford don. Their marriage produced a daughter Julia.

After the divorce, in 1991 he married after many years of coexistence Bernard Teltscher, also an excellent bridgista. The couple split in 2006 while remaining in friendship until Bernard's disappearance.

Kitty's parents were keen bridge players and her first memory of a bridge game is of them sitting on the verandah of their large bungalow on the outskirts of Bombay, playing bridge with Viennese friends. In the late 50's Kitty used to kibitz regularly at the Cafe Prueckl in Vienna. The standard was poor, but she was hooked.

She played primarily rubber bridge for stakes at Stefan's Bridge Circle, The Acol, St John's Wood Bridge Club, St James and latterly TGR's. In 2002 she formed a partnership with Lizzie Godfrey and played as a team with Nicola Smith and Heather Dhondy, Michelle Brunner and Rhona Goldenfeld. They won the Trials and the Lady Milne and competed in Montreal.

In 2003, Lizzie and Kitty played with Nicola and Heather and Sally Brock partnering Kath Nelson. They competed in Menton.

In 2004 Sally and Kitty linked up and are looking forward to a successful partnership.

Kitty has been writing a popular column in Bridge Plus for the past 6 or 7 years, called "Bridge with Panache"
