The Grossack boys continue to do very well at the National bridge tournaments. Zach and his 21-year-old Swedish partner Mikael Rimstedt won the Silodor Open Pairs by a wide margin on Friday. Adam played with Mikael's brother Ola and finished third. A link to the daily bulletin from Kansas City covering the event is here.
Earlier in the week, Zach and Adam played together in the Platinum Pairs, which is probably the toughest pair event of the year. While they did not win the event, they led with one session to go before dropping to fifth at the end. This is a very impressive result against a field of the strongest players in the world.
In other news, Pat McDevitt and Sheila Gabay led the Mixed Pairs with one session to go before finishing eighth. Lloyd Arvedon has had several top ten showings over the week.
Congratulations to all our competitors!
