The Duplicate Bridge Group I Played their regular duplicate bridge session on January 12 at Round Table Pizza in Pizza in Pleasant Hill. The top 3 finishers were as follows:1.
1st Kahl- Schulze 40.5 points
2T. Main Spicer 34
2T. Hubinger-Woolf 34
Certificates of Recognition were presented to Bud Grisanti and Jim Regan for top team play in 2017 and to Harry Hubinger and Brian Woolf for a 2nd place finish. Congratulations!!!
While only one slam was bid and made, the play on Friday included some very interesting boards. The Main-Spicer pair bid the slam, a small vulnerable one, for a top offensive score of 980 points. On the defensive side, the Grisanti-Regan pair found a way to defeat a doubled vulnerable 3NT contract by 4 for the top score of 1100. The largest swing on a hand occurred when Kahl- Schulze, sitting E-W, bid and made a non-vulnerable doubled 3 spade contract for a score of 530. On the same hand, Grisanti-Regan, sitting N-S, bid and made a doubled vulnerable 3 NT contract for a score of 750. This resulted in a whopping 1280 point swing on the hand!
Thanks to Dean Steichen for set-up and for goodies . Brian Woolf has these duties for our next session which will be on March 9 at 9:15 AM at Round Table Pizza in PH.
