Omar sharif-sharif once said, acting may be my business, but bridge is my passion.
he also was quoted as saying, there was a point when i became too keen. it was obsessive. i would play all the tournaments. i would not make certain films if they interfered with my bridge schedule. i dreamt about cards. i was driven by the competition. i was good at it and i wanted to be perfect. but bridge is like golf; you can never achieve perfection. you get better, but because it is a game of partnership there is no way you can get there. you need to perfect a system between you and your partner.
