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 I Group met on October 13 at Round Table Pizza in Pleasant Hill.
The session was quite tight with 5 teams scoring over 30 points. Bud Grisanti and Jim Regan returned to their often achieved top position with Harry Hubinger and Brian Woolf right on their heels. A frequent Sub, Steve Greytak teamed with Rod Spicer for third place
Scores for the top three finishers were as follows:
1st Grisanti-Regan 37.5 pts
2nd Hubinger-Woolf 36
3rd Greytak-Spicer 34
Top offensive score was made by the Greytac-Spicer team when they bid and made a doubled-redoubled small slam in diamonds for a score of 1380 Kahl and Schulze also bid 6 diamonds on the board, and while they made 7 tricks on the hand, they were out-scored due to a lack of a double by the defense. Would they have redoubled the contract? Only the bridge gods know. The team of Gary Plisco and Jerry Milano were the only team to bid and make a small slam in hearts on a board where all teams took 6 tricks. Top defensive scores were earned by the teams of Gene Bingham / Ernesto Tong and Hubinger/ Woolf when they set doubled non vulnerable contracts on different boards by 3 for scores of 500.
Thanks to George Schulze for set-up. Jim Regan has these duties next month.
Lastly, thanks to our subs; Ernesto Tong, Steve Greytak, and Al Welch.
