Join Bridge Winners
Congratulations Eugene and Helen

On Saturday, August 25, Bridge Winners' own Eugene Hung married Helen Chang at the University Club in Palo Alto, CA.

Both Eugene and Helen are avid bridge players; not only was their first date at a bridge club, but their wedding reception featured a duplicate bridge game (run as an individual barometer, no less!).  Here's a hand where Jason and Erin Feldman tried unsuccessfully to dump to the groom:

Declarer (a world champion) could have made the hand after the shift, but how can anyone have a stiff club with this defense?  Even though normal defense beats the contract 3, most N/S pairs didn't get to game so the Feldmans' gift to Eugene didn't turn out so great. 

Several Bridge Winners staff members were in attendance.  Unfortunately Gavin and I never got our invitations due to a bug in the Alert Stream, but we were there in spirit.

Congratulations Eugene and Helen; may all your boards be tops.
