Upsets Mark USA1 Senior Quarterfinal

Wolfson, the #1 seed, faced Cappelli, a mixed Michigan-Denver four-handed squad.  Michigander Bob Bitterman, former Michigander Robert Cappelli, and our own David Caprera with partner Anne Brenner put on a 20-IMP hurt to the superstars, relegating Wolfson to the USA2 Round of 16.

 

#6 Vinita Gupta came from behind in the final set to down Mahaffey by 4 in a nail biter.

 

Seeding form prevailed as #2 P. Hamman, NPC overcame #7 Pollack by 31, and #4 Wold slammed #5 Lewis by 71 after 5 sets; Lewis withdrew from the last 15 boards.

 

Semi-Finals for USA1 begin tomorrow (Saturday); only one team of the initial 10 entries has been eliminated from contention for USA2 at this point.
