Join Bridge Winners
Congratulations to Junior USBC U21 Semifinalists

Four Under 21 Junior teams have qualified for face to face competition in the 2013 Junior United States Bridge Championship. These teams finished first through fourth in the online qualifying stage of the U21 JUSBC. The event will continue with in person Training and Trials in Atlanta December 28-Jan. 2. The top two teams in the competition will represent the United States in the Damiani Cup (U21 event) at next year's World Junior Championship in Istanbul, Turkey.

Online play consisted of one day of Round Robin competition followed by one day of Knock In competition for four of the six teams in the event. After the first day of play, one team, Kriegel, was ahead of 5th place by more than 20 VPs, so earned a qualifying spot; a second team, Chai, was more than 30 VPs behind 4th place, so was eliminated after one day of play. The other 4 teams played 2 Knock In matches on Sunday - the winners of the first match (Dhir & Harper) advanced to Atlanta. The losers of the first matches played a second match against each other and the winner of that match (Weingarten) also advanced. Semi-finalists are:

Kriegel (Oren Kriegel-Christopher Huber, Ben Kristensen-Kevin Rosenberg)

Harper (Brandon Harper-Ryan Miller, Hakan Berk-David Soukup)

Dhir (Arjun Dhir-Christian Jolly, Allison Hunt-Burke Snowden)

Weingarten (Matthew Weingarten-Nolan Chang, Cole Spencer-Evan Berman)

Good Luck to all of the teams in the next stage of the JUSBC!

The USBF wants to thank all of the generous sponsors whose contributions have made it possible for us to hold the Training and Trials event in Atlanta this year. Without their support it wouldn't be possible. We are also grateful to BBO, who make online competition possible by providing the "bridge club" in which we play and extra support for these events.

The Round Robin Crosstable, first Knock In match and second Knock In match scores are available on the USBF website. You can find play records on BBO.
