Robson & Davis Pairs

This year we decided to run the Robson Ladies' Pairs and the Davis Gentlemen's Pairs in a combined field. This was for both convenience and cost (i.e. we don't have to pay for two directors). We were please to see that everybody adhered to the ethos of the competition and entered with a partner of the same sex. (The only mixed pair was the standby pair who played so that we didn't have to have robots).

There was no doubt about the Davis Trophy winners with Harry Gordon and Steve Francis demolishing the field with a whopping 76% - That was 10% ahead of 2nd place and 20% ahead of 4th place.

The top ladies' pair was Krystyna Krzeczkowska and Dorothy Pennington, but as they were visitors, they were ineligible for the Robson Trophy. Instead we had a tie between Pam Smith/Mary Clarke and Lynda Dunne/Sarah Gilbert. There is standard procedure that we follow in order to split the tie. Had they played each other then we would look at the scores on just those board - but they didn't sad. So we used plan B where we compared each board and see who did better on more boards. On ten boards Pam and Mary did better than Lynda and Sarah, and on nine boards it was the other way around, with one board being a draw.

So it was a close call, but Pam Smith and Mary Clarke are the winners by a smidgeon.
