For the first time since 1937 Hungary plays host to the European Bridge Team Championships (although the Youth Championships were staged in Budapest in 1986). In those now far off years, the Championships were dominated by Austria and Hungary, who between them won five of the seven contests between 1932 and 1938, only France managing to disturb their joint hegemony. Could it be that the concept of synchronicity caused these two great nations to meet in the ‘other’ Euros just two days ago? What is certain is that they will both be hoping to recapture the glory of those early years here in Budapest.
At the end of day one the Lebanese pair Hana Kreidieh & Nahla Hamdan are leading the European Women’s Pairs Championship, ahead of the Netherlands’ Carla Arnolds & Sandra Kolen and Turkey’s Mehves Pisak & Tuna Aluf. In the Team Championship, Croatia’s four wins took them to the top of the table. They are followed by Ireland, Norway & Poland. To use a footballing analogy it is still ‘Early Doors’.
