Frank Scouse Cup compettition 2022 winners

On 29 September sixteen club members, playing Chicago scoring, competed for the Frank Scouse Cup. Presented in 2013 by the now late Frank Scouse (founder member) to mark his 25 years as chairman. The well-deserved winning pair were Jean Scouse and Elaine Priestley shown below receiving the cup and prizes from Chris Wardley, secretary (photo credit to Roger Dadd, chairman). The competition experimented with using duplicate style movement and pre-dealt boards, in an attempt to reduce the “luck” element of hand-by-hand dealing. All pairs played all 20 boards in groups of four as normal for Chicago and all pairs playing 2 or 3 times at NS or EW. In that Jean and Elaine won with a score of 630 points and runners-up Ann Mahoney & Richard Middleton had 620 points and third placed Wendy Dickins & Roger Dadd had 520 this was successful. Key to Jean and Elaine winning was that they took advantage of the game opportunities they had better than other pairs did theirs.
