David Venetianer wins NAOBC 0-5000 Knockout

On July 22, Unit 190's own David Venetianer won the North American Online Bridge Championships (NAOBC) 0–5000 Knockout Teams event as part of team "Mr. 1700 and Friends".  In addition to David the team included Eric Gentleman (Captain), Richard Franklin (David's longtime friend and partner), Paul Holmes, AJ Stephani and Isaac Stephani.   This was a four-day knock-out event with a single match each day.  In a remarkable performance, the Mr. 1700 and Friends team never trailed in any quarter of any of their matches throughout the event.
