Ron Peace Cup 2023
Ron Peace Cup 2023

Congratulations to Wendy for wining the Ron Peace Cup on Thursday 19 October, named after the principal founder of the club, in the 30th year since the first competition for it. This event has always been for individual Chicago, a format it now seems strange to recall was used regularly once or twice a month before the club played duplicate and when members played without prearranged partners. The last time there was a competition for it was 2019 when Jean Scouse won.

The result was quite tight for the format of play with hand-by-hand dealing (60 such over the event 15 of them resulting in made games). There were 12 players and five rounds of four hands. Wendy had 3,850 points, Jürgen 3,710, Sean 3,260 and Chris 2,230.

Chris had produced table cards showing players and moves for the three tables and a scheme for coping with sit-outs for one or two extras. The latter was not required following two last minute cancellations. All players had five different partners determined by the table cards showing moves starting from positions drawn by lot. Nevertheless, several regular partnerships played one of the five rounds together – the luck of the draw.

Roger presented the rather nice silver cup to Wendy.

About the club

Bloxham Bridge Club, founded in September 1987, is a social club for players of intermediate standard playing in an informal and friendly atmosphere.
