Island Individual Bridge Championship 2017/18
 
A new name was added to the Caymanx Trophy as Manx Individual Bridge Champion on Sunday 13th August and it was good to see a lady member and a member of Ramsey Royal Bridge Club triumphing after several years of Douglas male domination in the competition.
 
There was a smaller entry than usual this year and most of the Island squad were absent for various reasons but, as ever, the competition was keen, albeit friendly. Four individuals dominated the leaderboard throughout the day. At the end of the afternoon session Liz Kelly had a commanding position, leading the field with a splendid score of 68.33%, Jackie Molesworth was lying second with 63.33%, John Large (a previous winner and favourite to regain the title) was third with 58.33% and Ann Anderson was fourth with 56.94%.
 
The evening session resulted in a reshuffle of the four top names. Liz Kelly faded and, in the end, came in third with 58.33%. Ann Anderson held on to fourth by improving her score to 57.58% and, at the death, it all hinged on the final board which saw Jackie Molesworth (61.36%) score well and triumph over John Large (59.85%). So Jackie deservedly won the Cup, which she will hold for 12 months. No doubt the Douglas men will want it back next year!
