Canadian National Team Championships is Live on BBO Vugraph this weekend

The premier event at the Canadian Bridge Federations's (CBF) annual Bridge Week is the Canadian National Team Championship (CNTC).  After a 4 day complete round robin (22 teams this year), the field is reduced to 8 teams for the KO rounds.  The two day, eight segment, final is currently underway and can be viewed live on BBO.

Nick Gartaganis, Judith Gartaganis, Jeff Smith, Paul Thurston, John Zaluski, Martin Caley

Bob Todd, NPC, Ray Hornby, Doug Fisher, Steve Mackay, Brad Bart, Danny Miles, Neil Kimelman

The two finalists are well known as Nick & Judy Gartaganis are multiple CNTC Champions on a new team with some old/new partnerships. They easily won the round robin, their opponents WD early in the QF, while the SF was very close until the final set as Gartaganis pulled away from the surprising D'Souza squad who upset one of the pre-tournament favourites, L'Ecuyer, by ONE imp 150-149 in the QF!

The Todd team are the defending 2017 CNTC Champions with Ray Hornby replacing Bob Todd who, for personal reasons, was unable to compete this year. They led from start to finish in a close QF match, then easily won the SF match by more than 100 imps!

Watch the two day final Live all weekend on BBO. May the best team win!
