Unusual Pairings and names.
In the HCL tournament in India a month ago, our round of 16 match was against the Dutch junior team named Drink. Their name honoured their idols and mentors who did well in world youth events 15 years ago as Drink Driver until they matured into Brink and Drijver.
Club bridge in Athens and Rome
We played duplicate at Alfredo Versace's bridge club on a houseboat on the Tevere (Tiber) River in Rome recently. The enjoyable game started late in the evening after dinner. If you message Alfredo on Facebook, I would expect him to reply positively.
Last night's viewing of John McAllister's movie Double Dummy, starring Adam Kaplan and his parents among others, was really cool, but Adam's young team beating Monaco is even cooler. Well done and good luck against the Rayner team tomorrow.
Yeh Bros Cup 2017
Tomorrow's Grand Final is between Eric Kokish - Fred Gitelman, Curtis Cheek - Huub Bertens and Josef Blass - "Pepsi", Greco - Hampson, Kalita - Nowosadzki. Pepsi's team narrowly won the three way match from Monaco and the Kranyak team.
In 2019 the European Championships will be held in Opatija Croatia. Do you think that will be a better venue?
Peter Gill's bidding problem: AK862 A QJT9875 ---
Correct. Partner had QJ3 K76 K43 AQ42. 6D was a big winner due to a diamond ruff sometimes beating 6S. 3NT scored OK. Nobody bid to 6NT. 4S scored below average.
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: 84 762 95 KQJ632
At the other table, my opponent Alfredo Versace bid 3C over 2D after the exact same start to the auction.
