Well done Dom & Jeff for this brilliant result. Further congratulations are due to Dom and Jeff for coming top in the Shrewsbury Swiss Pairs a week later.
In the Simultaneous Pairs, held on 24 January, Pam Booth-Jones and Tony Leech came top in the club on the night. But you may not know that, in the Sim Pairs competition as a whole, Pam and Tony scored 62.7% and finished 13th out of 341 pairs playing around the world. Congratulations to both on a fine performance.
At the West Midlands Bridge Congress, held in Solihull 6-8th January, there were excellent performances from a number of the club pairs. Particular congratulations go to Helen and Peter Lees, who won the Flitch trophy for married couples. With a fine score of nearly 60% they also finished 3rd overall in the Mixed Pairs. In the open pairs the next day Keith Shuttleworth and Brian Nicholls finished 7th in a strong field of 112 pairs, despite narrowly losing their first match to Lawrence Haynes and Marcus Eassom. They recovered well from the early setback and, going into the last game, they still had a chance of coming out on top. Lawrence and Marcus also finished in a creditable 35th place, winning 5 of their 7 matches.
