The Duplicate Bridge I group met for their regular session on March 8 at Round Table Pizza in Pleasant Hill:

  1. Kahl-Schulze  21.55 pts
  2. Regan-Rizzo  20
  3. Bushnell- Davis 18.5

The Regan-Rizzo team made the only successful slam try when they bid and made 6 spades vulnerable for a score 1430. The other two teams who played the hand made 5 spades, with one bidding 6 and the other settling for 5. The top defensive score went to the teams of Steichen-Wherritt and Bushnell-Davis when they set a doubled non-vulnerable 5 club contract by 3 for a score of 500. This looked like a save gone bad as 4 hearts made for a score of 420 in the other direction. Had the 4 heart contract been vulnerable, it would have proven to be a good save.       

Thanks to Rod Spicer for hosting this session. Also, thanks to Bob Wherritt and Ron Rizzo for subbing.

Dean Steichen has the hosting duties for next month’s session which will be held at Round Table in Pleasant Hill on Friday, April 12
