A Bio With a Difference

It is always difficult to write about oneself, much easier to let other people do it for you. Here is an updated bio which was originally posted on E-Bridge.

Migry Zur Campanile was born in Bucharest, Romania, in a year that is a closely guarded secret. She is now a bridge professional and teacher living in New York with her husband, bridge professional and writer Pietro Campanile. They actually met while playing bridge online. "He was an Italian living in London," says Migry, "but he was desperate to find the right excuse to learn Hebrew, so how could I refuse his invitation to get married?"

"An unruly childhood and adolescence was only partially mitigated by an early induction to the family evening bridge marathons, which caused me many late nights and zombie-like mornings," she reveals.

Migry is one of the top-ranked players in the world and she is the only Israeli player to have won three world championships: in 1998, she won the World Generali Masters in Corsica, in the 2000 Olympiad in Maastricht, she partnered Piotr Gawrys as a member of “Team E-Bridge”, which won the World Mixed Teams title. Finally in 2013 she won the Venice Cup, partnering Jill Meyers and representing the USA, the country she had moved to in 2006.

Migry's international career began playing for Israel at the 1984 European Championships in Wiesbaden. Her first notable success was however at the 1991 European Common Market Championships in Athens, where she won a Gold medal in the teams and a Silver medal in the Women's Pairs. Two years later, she again finished second in the pairs at the same event. At the 1995 European Championships in Portugal, she won the Bronze medal in both the team and pairs events, and took the Bronze medal in the teams again in 1997. Migry has won numerous Israeli National titles including the National Teams championship three times, the National Pairs twice, as well as several Mixed Pairs and Mixed Teams titles. Ever since moving to the US, she has won the team trials in 2011 and 2012 as well as many US National titles and countless Regional events.

Other international successes include winning four times the prestigious NEC Cup, partnering Michael Barel in an all-Israeli team, winning the 2005 Maccabiah Games and good placing finishes in the Yeh Cup

Away from bridge, Migry enjoys opera, gourmet cooking (her fabled meatballs enjoy a growing popularity), and jet-setting around the world. "Particularly Seattle, Venice, Yokohama, Albuquerque, Vilamoura, Montecatini, Rhodes, Lille, Salsomaggiore, Maastricht . . . Hmmm do those places ring a bell?"
