In June, July, and August, about half of our games are club-level qualifying games for the North American Pairs. All of these games award half-red, half-black masterpoints at about triple the level of regular games (82% sectional rating).
Players who qualify in at least one of these games (look for a “Q” next to your name on the results) may play in the New England District Finals on November 9–10 in Mansfield. The top three or four pairs in each flight will qualify for the North American Finals at the 2020 Spring North American Bridge Championships in Columbus and receive subsidies to help with their travel expenses.
(Note that most of our non-NAP games in June, July, and August are Club Championship or Special Fund games, which award masterpoints at 64% sectional rating—about 2½ times the level of regular games.)
The United States Bridge Federation is conducting Open, Women’s, Mixed, and Senior Team Championships in Chicago from May 10 through June 9. Each of these eight-day events selects two teams to represent the U.S.A. at the World Team Championships in Wuhan, China, in September. Six Westwood regulars were in the star-studded field, including Mark Aquino, Bart Bussink, and Selen Hotamisligil. The most successful were on the DONNER mixed team: Gary Donner–Yoko Sobel, Giorgia Botta–Zach Grossack, and Sheila Gabay–Adam Grossack.
DONNER was fourth in the two-day round-robin phase. While the top two from the round-robin faced off for the USA1 spot, the other teams started a six-day competition for USA2. DONNER jumped ahead of RADIN by 50 IMPs in the first 30 boards of their 120-board quarterfinal match and held on to win by 10.
For their USA2 semifinal match, DONNER drew the loser of the USA1 final. KOLESNIK took the lead on the fourth board, and were up 63 IMPs after 45 boards and 60 IMPs after 75 boards. DONNER fought back in the next 43 boards. On the penultimate board, Zach scored up 630 against 120 at the other table to take the lead by 1 IMP. Final score: DONNER 293, KOLESNIK 291.
In the USA2 final, DONNER faced the powerful ROSENTHAL team (Andrew Rosenthal, Debbie and Michael Rosenberg, Chris Willenken, and Migry Zur Campanile). Most of the first day was a seesaw battle, but ROSENTHAL went ahead to stay on the 48th board, winning 271 to 212.
