The 4th Commonwealth Nations Bridge Championship takes place  in Glasgow from 8th to 14th September . The Championship is held every four years  in the same city as the Commonwealth Games of the same year, and attracts some of the best bridge players in the Commonwealth. A team of six local players will be taking part, representing the Isle of Man, under the leadership of non-playing captain and veteran grand-master, Erika Slatcher. The team comprises three pairs – Paul De Weerd & Bernard Palmer, Andy Elliot & Stephen Baggs and John Large & Tadgh O’Mahoney and  all  these three pairs have a fine record in local competitive bridge this year. However, the opposition is expected to be strong: there are 25 other national teams attending, and these include many top international players.  Whilst The Isle of Man will certainly have had the smallest pool of players of any of the competing nations from which to select its team, it is as good a squad as the Island could expect to field and the team is confident that it will do well and perhaps spring a few surprises on some of their more illustrious opponents. Many Manx bridge-playing fingers will be crossed that the team will  come home with something to celebrate.

Joint Winners of Island Individual Championship for 2014.
 
20 members competed in the Manx Bridge Union Individual Championship for 2014 which was held at the Douglas Bridge Club on Sunday 3rd August – a closely contested affair which  produced a particularly close and tense finish.
 
Forty boards were played over the course of five gruelling hours and, at the half way stage, Angie Kissack led with a quality 67.65%. Flora Simons was in second place with 64.06%, John Large (who won the competition in 2011)and Pam Townsend shared third  place with 62.50%. But others were also in close contention. The field gradually eroded Angie’s lead during the second half of the competition and John Large drew ahead of the pack to become the main challenger. There was a nail biting finish with the issue being in doubt right up to the last score on the last hand of the night. In the end there was a tie between Angie and John who both scored 60.20%; a good result, as it would have been a shame if either had had to lose. So Angie and John share the Caymanx Cup and the honour of being Island Individual Champion for 2014.Third place went to Pam Townsend with 56.58%, who just held off the challenge of Gloria Smith on 56.25%. Good to see the ladies so prominent – the men have been dominant for too long.
 
Photo shows Pam Townsend, Angie Kissack and John Large with the Caymanx Cup. The ferocity of the contest may be judged from the fact that John Large appears to have lost an arm during the competition!
