Bridge club holds red point events

Brisbane Water Bridge Club attracted 13 pairs to contest its Australia Day Pairs competition, the first red point event of the year.

Numbers were down on the record achieved in 2020 when 80 players attended.

Christine Hadaway and Jackie Wilson handled the play best, scoring a comfortable two per cent win.

Wednesday morning regulars Carol Anderson and Edith Marshal finished an impressive second, edging out Martin Johnson and Chris Hasemore by a small margin.

There were not enough numbers to run a novice section.

Summer Pairs competition was played on January 29 with 14 pairs.

East-West players Richard Carter and Lorraine Lindsay were on fire, winning by an incredible eight per cent.

The battle for North-South was a much closer affair.

Saturday stalwarts Sylvia Foster and Jaan Oitmaa squeezed out a win by a single percentage point.

To make the day interesting there were a couple of slams available and a few hands with opposing long suits that made bidding, at times, very competitive.

The club's next red point event is Valentine's Day Pairs.

1 Christine Hadaway - Jacqueline Wilson 164.3 (60.83 per cent), 0.70 red points.
