Duplicate bridge

The Garden City Duplicate Bridge Club played a 28-board Howell movement Monday, playing seven pairs. Absent slams, 23 games were made, with the edge to no-trump contracts. A single point separated the top three as May Craig and Jon Kempton squeezed into first place with a 59 percent game. Wen Wurst and Jon Craig tied with Pat Barber and Helen Lee for second/third.

The club held a sanctioned charity game Nov. 25 participated in by eight playing pairs. Using preset hands originated by the ACBL, a 28-board Howell movement was used and each player received their own hand record after the game when all results had been turned in.

The competition faced a different challenge in nearly every hand, but 25 games divided between suits and no-trump were toted in the end. On the slam front, one hand saw a slam bid every time though none succeeded; one other failed, but three finally were made. Therin Woolwine and Kempton accumulated a 4.4-point margin to post a surprise win with a 64 percent game. Ron Patrick and Dorothy Bartlett placed second at 58 percent. Wurst and Craig, at 56 percent, were in third.

Regular games begin at 7 p.m. Monday, 1:15 p.m. Tuesday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Senior Center of Finney County, 907 N. 10th St., with all bridge players welcome. For partners, call Jon Kempton at 276-2876.
