World Bridge Games Winners
Congratulations to the Scottish Women's team for reaching the semi-final, where they lost a very close match. As predicted, we in the Scottish Open team did not threaten, but we did beat the Dutch in the Group RR.
Who Will Win Open World Bridge Games?
I'll be playing for the first time, and look forward to meeting some of the people I read on this site. Having watched such events (online) for many years as a fan, I am just delighted to be taking part. I see that Scotland didn't make it into ...
