Two-time national champion Steve Goldberg of Las Vegas died Oct. 27. He was 72.

In the early ‘70s, Goldberg enjoyed a successful partnership with Hall of Famer Lou Bluhm (who died in 1990). They were members of the winning squads in the 1972 Reisinger Board-a-Match Teams and the 1974 Spingold Knockout Teams. In 1973, their team tied for second-third in the Men’s (now Mitchell Open) Board-a-Match Teams.
