Sami Kehela

Sami (sometimes spelled "Sammy") Kehela is a Canadian contract bridge player. A member of the Hall of Fame of both the American Contract Bridge League[1] and of the Canadian Bridge Federation,[2] he is considered, along with his partner Eric Murray, one of the top Canadians ever to have played the game.[3]

Between 1966 and 1974, Kehela and Murray placed second in three Bermuda Bowls.[4][5] Unique among world players, they also represented their country as a partnership in every one of the first six World Team Olympiads, from Turin in 1960 to Valkenburg in 1980. Together they won the Life Master Men’s Pairs, the Life Master Pairs, the Vanderbilt, and the Spingold Trophy three times.[6] Kehela and Murray were also runners-up in the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL)'s 1969 Blue Ribbon Pairs.[7]

Kehela lives with his wife in Toronto.[8]
