Bridge: Personlig hilsen fra Obama!
På åpningsseremonien fikk alle bridgespillerene en personlig hilsen fra Obama. Hans besteforeldre spilte bridge og var medlem av ACBL (American Contract Bridge Leauge), og ubekreftede rykter sier at Obamas første betalte jobb var som kortbærer!

"I am pleased to send greetings to all those participating in the 2010 World Bridge Series Championship.
This event is a unique showcase for the game of bridge, featuring some of the best players from around the world in a rigorous and exciting competition. I hope the players gathered take pride in the skill and dedication required to reach this moment.
I have fond memories of my grandparents, who were avid bridge players, enjoying this game in the company of family and friends. As you come together to take part in this special event, I wish you all the best of luck"
