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.

PAR CONTEST RESULTS
Many thanks to Raymond Semp for an interesting afternoon of testing our Bidding, Leads, Declarer Play and Defence against Par.
After a few mistakes in completing the scores the players eventually “got the hang of it” and worked through 18 of the 24 boards that had been prepared!
As each pair played different hands that contained different accumulative points Raymond had to average the points out for the 18 boards played and give a percentage to each pair accordingly.
The Results on this basis are:
North / South
1 Carol Manian & Paul Murray 61.63% out of 82
2 Debby Kennedy & Marie Kirwan 58.01% out of 82
3 Haidee Tattersall & Ann Whitehead 54.38% out of 80
4 Annie Curtis & Jackie Lowrie 53.17% out of 92
5 Simon Alexander & Rita Van Den Burg 51.96% out of 80
6 Louise Vincent & Valerie Herbert 48.34% out of 82
7 Joan Lewis & Roy Higginbottom 39.88% out of 82
8 Vera Lowson & Geraldine Mulholland 32.63% out of 82
East / West
1 Roy Saleh & Scott Liddleton 62.84% out of 83
2 Tricia Blum & Hilary Boydell 59.21% out of 75
