8-Year-Old California Boy Becomes This Card Games Youngest Life Master

8-year-old Andrew Chen of San Jose, California, has become the youngest person in history to be granted the title of Life Master by The American Contract Bridge League, the world’s largest organization dedicated to the card game. The group said it usually take players decades playing at accredited tournaments to accumulate the points necessary to earn the title, but Chen was able to do so in only two years by playing in local tournaments and online. “I’m totally thrilled,” Andrew said. “I feel like my hard work has paid off, and I want to thank everyone who helped getting me there.” Chen said he likes the puzzle aspect to the game. “Every bridge hand is like a puzzle to solve,” he said. “I like working things out.” His brother Charlie, 10, is also pretty good – the two won a pairs trophy at a 2019 tournament in San Mateo County.



Michigan Man Wins 2nd $4 million Lottery Jackpot in 3 Years

South Rockwood, Michigan, resident Mark Clark has won his second $4 million lottery jackpot from a scratch-off ticket in the last three years, UPI reports. Rockwood told sate lottery officials that he purchased the ticket and scratched it off in the store using a lucky coin. “I scratched the ticket off in the store with a coin my dad gave me about 10 years ago. We lost him about a year ago after some health struggles, and I can’t help but think maybe that lucky coin helped me win this,” Clark said. He said he was shocked to see he’d won $4 million again, the same amount he won from a Millionaire’s Club scratch-off ticket in 2017. “You don’t think you’ll win millions once, and you definitely never think it would happen twice,” Clark said. “It’s hard to put into words exactly what I am feeling.” “After the first win, I retired from my job and spent a lot of time fishing. My dad and I always used to fish together and have great memories of that, so this will help me keep fishing and enjoying time with my son and family,” he said.



Smelly Fruit Package Sends 6 to the Hospital in German Town

Six people were taken to the hospital in a German town because of a foul-smelling package that turned out to be a Thai fruit, according to CNN. About 60 people were evacuated from a post office in Schweinfurt, Germany after staff began to notice the pungent odor. The package contained four Thai durian fruits. The smell, which some liken to rotting food or dirty socks, is popular for its texture and flavor. However, the smell was so strong people became nauseous. Six ambulances, two emergency vehicles, five first-responder cars and three fire departments responded to the scene. It turns out, a 50-year-old resident had sent the package home from a friend in another German city. “A total of twelve postal workers who complained of nausea had to be taken care of on site,” police said, noting six people were taken to the hospital. Eventually, the fruit made its way to the intended recipient.
