National Graded Masters

Congratulations to Rob Forman and Alan Heath who not only won their section (3) of the National Graded Masters, but topped the whole field of 46 pairs playing the same boards in sections 2, 3 & 4 of the competition, winning by a remarkable 10 x-imps.  An outstanding achievement.  Well done also to Tony Disley, who, playing with Mike Pownall, came second in the top section of this event.

Patrick Jourdain Teams Winners
Patrick Jourdain Teams Winners

It was a good day for Bridgend members at the recent teams tournament in Cardiff to honour the memory of the late Patrick Jourdain, probably the best known Bridge player in the history of Welsh Bridge.  We had two members of the winning team,  Debbie and Simon Richards, left, playing with Ceri Pierce and Eric Cummings, all four members of the second placed team, Linda Pinnock, Bill Turner, John Evans & Steve Burgoyne, and three members of the bronze medalists, Kevin Maddox, Tony Haworth and Mike Best, playing with Mark Roderick.  A fine performance in a good field - well done to all of them.

Swiss Pairs Success

There was good support from Bridgend members for the Western Area Swiss Pairs on 23rd. September, and considerable success, with 5 club members being in Pairs who came in the first three.  Winners were in-form Mike Best, partnering Kevin Maddox, second Tony Haworth playing with Rob Charlesworth, and third were Debbie and Simon Richards.  With two other club pairs sharing fourth spot, just outside the money, it was a good showing from Bridgend players in a strong field.  Well done to all of them.
