Prize competition underway on Funbridge

The ladder competition for the EBU's online games is underway. The members with the highest cumulative score from their best four results each month will win prizes - see here for more details.

As a prelude to that we ran an unofficial competition in September, with the top three scorers each receiving a copy of the GOTO Bridge software, kindly donated by Funbridge.

The usernames of the winners were: LiliasL, DoctorOctopus, and Pembos.

The results for that competition are available here.

For more details on playing in our online games on Funbridge, please see this FAQ page.

Owen & Holland win Great Northern Swiss Pairs

Clive Owen (North East) & John Holland (Manchester) have won the Great Northern Swiss Pairs with a score of 180 VPs from their twelve matches. This was the third time they have each won the competition, and the second time as a partnership.

Clive & John lost only once across the weekend, and finished 15 VPs ahead of Robin Jepson & Alan Brosgill (both Yorkshire). David Debbage (Staffs & Shrops) & Viv Wood were third with 161 VPs.

The Improvers competition was won by Joan Eager & Brian Eager (both Yorkshire). They scored 68 VPs from five matches, with Lindsey Wharmby & Caroline Moseley (both Yorkshire) in second on 60 VPs. There was a tie for third on 58 VPs between Katherine Libbert & Jon Crook (both Yorkshire), and Neil Macdonald & Lorraine Macdonald (both Yorkshire).

The event was run by Yorkshire CBA on behalf of the EBU.
