The British Gold Cup, or as it is better known, the BBL Gold Cup, was first played in the year 1931. It is one of the oldest, continuous bridge competition in the world and some of the greatest names in the game of bridge in the United Kingdom have participated in this event. The Gold Cup is a KO Teams competition run annually.

The semi-finals and final were held at the West Midlands Bridge Club on 13th & 14th December. On Saturday the Allfrey team won their semi-final against the Mason team by just 6 IMPs, whereas the other semi-final was more one-sided with the McIntosh team (Andrew McIntosh, Phil King, Stefan Skorchev, Cameron Small) beating the Gillis team by 57 IMPs.

The final started well for the McIntosh team, and they led by 25 IMPs after three stanzas, but the Allfrey team picked up 37 IMPs in the next two stanzas and ultimately won 115-98.
