||Sunshine (aka David Sheinson) started playing
winks at MIT in the Fall of 1966, at the inimitable Bexley Hall. Known to play winks
with whichever hand is most convenient, and occasionally with his feet, Sunsch formed the
famed Hyth team (HYTHNLBTWOC—Hark Yon
Tree Hath No Leaves But They Will Out Club), and later, the TKOs (The Knowledgeable Ones),
and Chickens Courageous. Usually out-and-about with bare feet and his trademark
black locks, * (as he is sometimes referred to) co-invented the NATwA Perimeter Rule in
the early 1980s, aimed at increasing skill and reducing bad luck for those sending winks
off the table. Earlier, in 1976, Sunsch wrote the seminal tome, Allegheny Airlines Book Club
Presents, which is a compendium of winks perversions (er... variations).
Sunshine dumbfounded Continentals contestants in the late 1970s with an incredible frenzy
of potting. A number of World Singles events are on Sunsch's résumé.
