Three weeks ago Michael Byrne was at OBC running a training weekend for the International Junior squad. Two weeks ago he gave two great seminars as part of our education programme. One for club players and one for experts. 52 players enjoyed a challenging time.
This weekend he was the the overall winner of the Portland pairs event. See the national results at https://app.pianola.net/Results/Session268491.
You can find the local results for our local heat of the event here. Congratulations to Emily Middleton and Matthew Covill who were the highest placed OBC pair in the heat.
