Join Bridge Winners
Support Our Junior Trials - BBO VuGraph - Monday-Wednesday!

During the lull of the Holiday Season, we have the opportunity to watch the brightest and best play for selection to represent the USA at the WJC in Italy this August.

 

Watching the Juniors is a bit like spectating (word?) Barry Crane in his heyday . . . many extreme actions and thrilling results!  Guarantee that we won't be bored, and likely often on the edge of our proverbial seats!

 

The entire tournament is run by the USBF, with uber capable Jan Martel and long time Junior Mentor Joe Stokes at the helm, so it will be beautifully organized and efficiently run.  There are a total of 17 teams competing at the Atlanta Hyatt Regency.  Many have contributed in time, expertise, and funding (list at end of Article).

 

Play each day of KO's will be from 11AM to 8:30PM EDT (8AM to 5:30PM Pacific).

 

Competing will be the Under 26 Open (U26), the Under 21 Open (U21) and Girls, all under 26.  Here is the link to the USBF Home Page:

A huge thanks to the fine and unheralded contribution of a number of donors:   Franco Baseggio, John Diamond, John McAllister, Warren Spector, Drew Becker, Mark Gordon, Lou Ann O'Rourke, Stan Tulin, Richie Coren, Vinita Gupta, Alex Perlin, Dan Zagorin, 2 Anonymous Donors.

 

I will try Voice Commentary when available, unfortunately with prior business meeting commitments on Tuesday.  Anyone who can open and help me with Convention Cards, style of specific pairs, or news/information of general interest, please feel free to message me :)
