The Duplicate Bridge Group I Played their regular duplicate bridge session on March 9 at Round Table Pizza in Pizza in Pleasant Hill. The top 3 finishers were as follows:

  1. Greene-Regan           44 points
  2. Barnes-Bushnell       35
  3. Bingham-Steichen   32.5       

While no slams were bid and made, some very high scores were posted on several hands. The top  offensive score was achieved by the team of Bob Barnes and David Bushnell when they made 6 on a vulnerable, doubled 5 heart contract for a score of 1050. Steve Greene and Jim Regan also posted a good offensive score when they made a doubled, vulnerable 4 diamond bid for a score of 710.On the defensive side, Gene Bingham and Dean Steichen attained a top score when they doubled and set a non vulnerable 2 diamond bid by 6 for a whopping score of 1400. Of interest, and not surprising, is that this same hand was played in diamonds in the opposite direction by the Bob Kahl- George Schulze team who bid 3, making 5. Best save of the day goes to Harry Hubinger and Brian Woolf when they took a 2 trick set in 5 diamonds at a cost of 200 points to prevent keep their opponents out of a sure 4 heart contract that made upwards of 5 or more for 650+.

Thanks to Brian Woolf for set-up and for goodies . Gene Bingham has these duties for our next session which will be on April 13 at 9:15 AM at Round Table Pizza in
