Stocken and Townsend win at Harrogate

The main Swiss Pairs event at the Harrogate Spring Congress was won in a very close finish by Jack Stocken and Bill Townsend, with a winning margin of just one victory point over Patrick Collins and Andrew Petrie. Going into the final match a number of pairs could have taken the trophy so Jack and Bill were grateful for every one of the 14 VPs they won.

The Swiss Teams was less exciting, with the Dessain team winning every match to finish 9 VPs ahead of Harris in second. Congratulations to Tom Dessain, Tugrul Kaban, Mark Hill and Giles Ip.
