Oram team wins Senior Knock-out

The Gerard Faulkner Salver, the Seniors Knockout Teams competition, has been won by the team of Alan Kay, Derek Oram (captain), Celia Oram and Jeremy Dhondy (pictured left to right). On Sunday they won a closely contested final against Victor Silverstone, Gerald Haase, Tony Waterlow and Ian Panto.

The match was played over six eight-board rounds, and only one set saw a double-figure gain for either team. The second set proved to be the crucial boards as the Oram team picked up 38 IMPs in that round, and eventually won by 39 IMPs.
