Join Bridge Winners
The Big Game of Bridge Nov 1st

 

Shortly after moving to the Bay Area of California, I learned that when Stanford University plays UC Berkeley (Cal) in football, this is known as THE BIG GAME.

In keeping with this tradition, in 2014 The Big Game of Bridge was introduced.  Teams from Stanford and Cal compete for the Rev Murthy Cup.  Rev was a superb bridge player from Cupertino, California, and a Cal alumnus.  He was much loved and is greatly missed by his friends, since his death in 2000 at age 34.   I feel sure that Rev would have loved supporting collegiate bridge, and wish with all my heart that this new generation of players could know Rev.

 

 

The 2015 match will be played face to face at the Palo Alto Bridge Center on Sunday, Nov 1st, from 4-8 PM California time.  The match will be broadcast on BBO vugraph and local kibitzers are welcome to attend the live event.  Vugraph commentators expected include Chip Martel and probably additional world class players.

Stanford was victorious in the 2014 Big Game of Bridge.  This year's Stanford team consists of four members of the 2nd place 2015 ACBL Collegiate Bowl team.  ACBL members can check out page 18 of your November Bulletin for a team photo within Oren Kriegel's event report (Oren's University of Chicago team won the event).
