Premier League 2013-4 Final Round

Williamson came back from a 15 imp deficit to beat Ashton 12-8 and retain their title despite Latchem’s resounding 20-0 victory over Blandy. Congratulations to them.

At the other end of the table, the bottom teams all picked up a few VPs but lost, leaving their positions unchanged, so Starr and van Praag are relegated.


The cards were as interesting as ever. Boards 2 and 10 are good slams for EW, but 2 is difficult to find after a weak 2H or multi from south. 1 is a very lucky slam for NS, and 17 needs a double-dummy line by E – playing for 3-3 hearts rather than 3-2 spades.


12 is a difficult bidding problem – should W double a weak no trump with 16 points including a singleton K? If so, North will rescue to 2S, and EW should find their heart game. In our match, both players downgraded their hand and played in 2H.



The results were

Latchem beat Blandy         20-0

Dunlop beat Starr              15-5

Holden beat Gwyer            12-8

King beat van Praag          12-8

Williamson beat Ashton     12-8

Moore beat Webb             11-9


This is my last season running the league, and I hope my successor has as few problems as I did. Good Luck to all and see you next season.
