PAR CONTEST RESULTS
Many thanks to Raymond Semp for an interesting afternoon of testing our Bidding, Leads, Declarer Play and Defence against Par.
After a few mistakes in completing the scores the players eventually “got the hang of it” and worked through 18 of the 24 boards that had been prepared!
As each pair played different hands that contained different accumulative points Raymond had to average the points out for the 18 boards played and give a percentage to each pair accordingly.
The Results on this basis are:
North / South
1 Carol Manian & Paul Murray 61.63% out of 82
2 Debby Kennedy & Marie Kirwan 58.01% out of 82
3 Haidee Tattersall & Ann Whitehead 54.38% out of 80
4 Annie Curtis & Jackie Lowrie 53.17% out of 92
5 Simon Alexander & Rita Van Den Burg 51.96% out of 80
6 Louise Vincent & Valerie Herbert 48.34% out of 82
7 Joan Lewis & Roy Higginbottom 39.88% out of 82
