League Cup final goes to extra time

The final of the 2019 Deva Teams League Cup was a hotly contested affair with the result after 24 boards being:

  • The Travellers 78 IMPs and
  • Bronze 63 IMPs.

However Bronze started with a +15 IMPs handicap so the scores were tied!

There was therefore a three board playoff which The Travellers won by 11 IMPs to 4.

Congratulations to The Travellers, Paul Holt, Laurence Stone, David Smith and Ian Bates and also to Peter Sumption who did not play in the final.

The runners-up, Bronze, were represented by Ian Taylor, Anne Dodd, Jeremy Dodd and Graham Campbell with Russ Whelan, Clare Blake and Kate Beckett who did not play in the final.
