Only 21 V.P s between first and last!


The results in round 5 went against the expectations you might

have had if you looked at the table; JONES took 15 of newly crowned

Gold Cup winners BLACK, and both GORDON and RGBA had fine wins.


HINDEN, however, soldiered on with a 15 against McGUIRE, and

have now taken the lead.


It has all served to tighten up the division so that you can throw a

blanket over it - although why you would want to is beyond me.






MINICHAMPS took maximum of VERVE in the third round, to

put themselves on top of the A group. Behind them it's very

tight though, with four teams fighting for the two qualifying spots.


RUSTY OLD MEN are heading the B group, but only a few ahead

of both LEHTO and HATSTAND. EWART also has a decent shot at

catching them.


We had two incidents of overhearing results being discussed at

other tables. At one table, Graham Orsmond knew that he could

have bid a making granslam, but refused to take advantage.

At another, a board had to be scrapped.

I want to remind all players that the boards are live during the break,

and best is not to discuss any hands during the match at all -

that's what the bar is for afterwards.
