Our annual Richard Burns Memorial Patriots’ Day Bridge Marathon on 2018 April 16 raised $286 for The Boston Foundation.
Mark Aquino won the Marathon with a 63.73% average for his best two sessions. Mark played all three sessions with different partners: Sheila Gabay, Selen Hotamisligil, and Susan Aquino (all with the first initial “S,” Mark noted). He was over 60% in every session, with two first-place finishes and a fifth. The next six players were Chuck Greenslit and Barbara McLagan (who won the afternoon session) at 60.89%, Parul Jain and Anand Lele at 60.56%, and Marina Polestra and Jim Rasmussen at 59.02%.
Marley Cedrone won the B stratum (0–1500 average masterpoints) with a 56.44% average for his best two sessions. Marley also played all three sessions with different partners: Sally Matthews (his grandmother), Peter Matthews, and Randy Ray. Marley was eighth overall. He is 12 years old.
Ann Keegan and Lanny Starr won the C stratum (0-500 average masterpoints) with a 49.55% two-session average.
Mark, Marley, Ann, and Lanny will be commemorated on the perpetual plaque for the event.
Three Westwood pairs excelled in the annual ACBL-wide Senior Pairs game on March 19. Barbara Pofcher and Richard Saval were tenth ACBL-wide and first in District 25 (New England) at 70.08%. Pat McDevitt and John Whistler were second in the district at 69.51%. Helen Flanagan and Bernie Garbose were fourth in the district at 67.05%.
Clubs across the ACBL, including Westwood, will be holding the ACBL-wide charity game on Wednesday morning, April 25. Masterpoints are 82% sectional-rated, and players are eligible for ACBL-wide and district-wide awards up to 20 masterpoints. Hand analysis is provided. Game time in Westwood is 10:30.
April is the ACBL’s annual Charity Month, and all Westwood games this month are charity games. Masterpoint awards are 64% sectional rated black points. This works out to about ⅔ of a point per player on average—about 2½ times the awards for regular club games.
All of our pair games are part of The Common Game. Compare your results with other clubs throughout North America, read expert analysis, and “Kibitz the Pros.”
