Early doors but good wins for Allfrey, de Botton and Ireland see them take the top 3 positions.
Here are the holders – Allfrey – in action against the Swedish Women (current Venice Cup holders).
Keep an eye on this site during the event for scores, pictures, hands and more.
You can see the action live or via BBO. More about watching the Lederer.
It’s shaping up to be a cracking event!
Tom Paske’s Lederer debut must be one of the most successful: his team (Allfrey) wins the whole thing and he and Ed win the Butlers. Well done!
* I think Ed Jones has only appeared once before. So pretty good showing by him too.
Final scores still being totted up but Allfrey have won after leading for most of the event. More anon…
Both Allfrey tables played in 3 diamonds. But only Zia-Bilde as defenders actually made 9 tricks on the hand. It didn’t affect Allfrey’s win but was quite an amusing finish.
We had over 1,000 BBO kibitzers watching the winners play the last match. Many thanks to the Vugraph operators for their help!
