Thrilling Climax to Tresanton Bridge Week
After five days of bridge, sea air and fantastic food, the Victor Ludorum chart for the duplicate events made for interesting reading. Not one pair managed a podium finish in more than one event, showing how evenly matched the sixteen pairs were this year. Retaining their title from 2016, it was Liz Stevens and Helen Beattie - by a whisker - who maintained greatest consistency over the various sessions.
As well as carefully constructed set hands, the random deals contained a 0-10-3-0 distribution, as well as a 8-4-1-0 hand and a 6-6-0-1 hand, so there were high-level bridge decisions galore.
Highest scoring pair of the week were Christine and Tony Harris who, with a fine 62% on the final day, raced into third position overall, just behind Joan Halpern and Michael Collins in the runners-up spot.
