After the end of the 2014 South American Bridge Championships in Santiago de Chile, Chile, the South American Bridge Rankings have been updated in the Open and Ladies categories. Today we are posting the Open Category Ranking from 2007 to August 2014. Photo: Joaquín Pacareu (CHI) Number One of the South American Bridge Ranking Number One.
This year the top of the South American Open Category Bridge Ranking is occupied by the Grandmaster Joaquin Pacareu (CHI) with 530 ranking points. Thanks to victories in the South American Team Championships 2008/2009/2010/2012 and the 2008/2011/2014 Pairs Championships for the first time in many decades, Joaquin achieved to dethrone the Brazilian Grand Masters from that place of honor and has become the first player from Chile to hold this position. Bravo Joaquín!.
Playing with the Grandmaster Benjamin Robles (CHI), in the recent years and thanks to these seven southamerican titles that they won playing together, have demonstrated that at the moment they are the best bridge partnership in South America. Benjamin Robles (CHI) is today in the second place of the South American Open Ranking with 513 ranking points. Bravo Benjamin!
Third is the Granmaster Miguel Villas Boas (BRZ) who lost two places from his last year position.
