Congratulations to Brian Short, Alan Goodman, Irving Gordon, Danny Kane, Liz McGowan and David Liggat who, under the expert guidance of NPC Anne Symons, won the Seniors Camrose over the weekend. It was a very tense affair, especially for the NPC I'm told, as the result was not known until the last board was played. As none of them are in Seniors team for the World Championship, Scotland is showing strength in depth in this age category.
Unfortunately only one match from each session was broadcast on BBO, so much of the weekend remains a mystery. We have results but so much can be missed from a simple score. In the penultimate match, Brian Short played the following hand well and took advantage of a slight defensive slip to produce a very pretty endplay.
Very nicely done by Brian. In the other room North and South never entered the auction and Liz McGowan went one down in two spades (at least that is what the record shows, it does seem it should always make), meaning 12 IMPs to Scotland.
