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:

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.

We will be encouraging people to take up Bridge as a hobby and will have leaflets for a taster lesson at the Club and free packs of cards for those who sign up.
We need Members to run the stall please.
If you can just give an hour of your time it would be great and much appreciated.
Please see Dave or Paul Murray and say what times you can do.
Also taking place on Saturday 8th June is a Free Members Only Social Night from 7pm to 11pm.
The Bar will be open for purchases and we are asking people to "bring a plate" either as a pair or individually. (Anything to eat will be very welcome!)
People will then draw randomly to make up teams for a relaxed session of bridge with small spot prizes.
