Ben Norton at
Salsomaggiore Terme, Italy

Congratulations to "he's one of our own" Ben Norton who (partnering Mike Bell) represented England in the Bermuda Bowl 2022. The pair were 4th in the Butler Ranking of all the Group matches, a magnificent performance. England were 5th of 24 in the Group matches but sadly lost to eventual winners Switzerland in the Quarter Finals. Below is a hand from the Switzerland Group match where Ben got the plaudits for fine declarer player in World Championships Bulletin 11. Below that are a list of links to the World Championship web pages, including the full report on the hand in Bulletin 11 which you may find of interest.

The overall results of the MCOL match v Notts on Sunday 13th March are here.  To view the replay of a particular hand, click on the board number and then the contract of interest to see the bidding and be able to follow the play on the board.
