Los Alamos 2017 Sectional Duplicate Bridge Tournament

on July 17, 2017 - 9:55am


The 56th annual Los Alamos Sectional duplicate bridge tournament is July 28-30 at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.

Last year’s tournament attracted more than 150 bridge players, both from within New Mexico and from surrounding states. More than 100 players came from outside Los Alamos County.

The tournament starts at 2 p.m. Friday with stratified and 499er pair games. Another stratified pair game is scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday. Saturday’s schedule includes stratified and 499er pair games at 9 a.m., as well as a compact knockout team game. The 2 p.m. schedule Saturday is the same.

Starting at 9:30 a.m. Sunday is a stratified Swiss team and a 499er stratified Swiss team event. Lynn Yokel from Seattle is the tournament director in charge, and Jerry Fleming is the local tournament chairman.

Duplicate bridge is a competitive, but friendly bridge game where several foursomes play the same hands, and their scores are determined by how well they did compared to others who held the same hands.

The Los Alamos duplicate bridge club holds games at 1:30 p.m. Monday at the White Rock Senior Center and 1:30 p.m. Wednesdays and 7 p.m. Thursdays at the Betty Ehart Senior Center. Bridge players of all skill levels are welcome to participate. Contact Cliff Rudy 505.662.1630) or Jerry Fleming 505.662.3036 for more information.
