Chairman: Bob Kahl
Duplicate Bridge 1
Meets the second Friday of the month at 9:00 AM
Round Table Pizza at 1938 Oak Park Blvd. in Pleasant Hill.
The Duplicate Bridge Group I Played their regular bridge session on Friday, November 9 at Round Table Pizza in Pleasant Hill. The Grisanti-Regan team dominated play with their second monthly win in a row. Again, their margin of win over their closest competitors was substantial. So much so that this chairman is considering a handicap system to level the playing field.
The top three scores were as follows:
- 1.Grisanti-Regan 27 pts
2t.Hubinger-Steichen 20 pts
2t. Kahl-Schulze 20 pts
Three slams were bid and made. One was by the Kahl-Schulze team when they bid bid 6 spades non-vulnerable for a score of 1010. The Hubinger-Steichen team also bid a small slam on the hand, but did not find a way for the over trick. The top scoring slam was made by the Milano-Persson team on a 6 spade vulnerable slam for a score of 1430. Top defensive honors went to the Grisanti-Regan team when they doubled and set by 3 tricks an overly optimistic 6 diamond try. Best “save” of the day occurred when the Kahl – Schulze team took a 1 trick set in 5 clubs when overbidding a cold vulnerable game in spades that could have been worth 620 points.
Ken Main was host this month. Jerry Milano has these duties for our next session which will be on December 14 at 9:15 AM at Round Table Pizza in PH.
