RESULTS

Buffett Cup

The 2019 Buffett Cup took place in China this year, in the southern coastal city of Haikou, capital of Hainan Province.

Starting on 24th April and running until 28th April, the competition included a team from Europe, the United States and China, each team consisting of 8 players. The Buffett Cup is similar to the prestigious Ryder Cup of golf and Davis Cup of tennis. Each squad has a number of players who compete in multiple formats. The outcome of the event is determined by the aggregate results of the segments.

First held in 2006, the Buffett Cup consists of pairs, teams, and individual competitions. The event is named after world-renowned businessman Warren Buffett, lifelong bridge devotee and competitor.

This year there were two English Pairs playing for Europe:

For more information about the event visit the Buffett Cup website.

The final result saw the USA team in first place with 972.3 and Jason and Justin's European team coming a very close second with 967.7.

Schapiro Spring Foursomes

The EBU's prestigious double elimination tournament took place from 3rd to 8th May.  By Sunday evening, after five rounds, David Debbage and Paul Hackett playing in the Sansom team, Alan Mould and John Holland playing in the Penfold team and Michael Byrne playing in the Allerton team were still in contention, albeit each having lost one match.  Play continued on Bank Holiday Monday and on the Tuesday for the final which was won by Justin and Jason Hackett playing in the Mossop team.
