2013 European Open Pairs Championship
It is inherently more exciting to play a pairs event using Barometer Scoring, and all three finals gave the thousands of BBO spectators plenty to get excited about. The three medal winning pairs in the European Open Pairs Championship swapped the lead several times before Roy Welland & Sabine Auken edged ahead of Jan Jansma & Zia Mahmood on the very last board, leaving Nils Kåre Kvangraven & Terje Lie in third place. In the Women’s final the long time leaders saw almost all their lead disappear before re-establishing themselves at the top. The new Champions, Catherine D’Ovidio and Janice Seamon-Molson finished clear of Marion Michielsen & Meike Wortel and Véronique Bessis & Carole Puillet. In the Senior Pairs Nicholas Fitzgibbon & Adam Mesbur charged through the field to overtake the long time leaders, Michael Elinescu & Entscho Wladow with Stephan Cabaj & Wlodzimierz Ilnicki finishing third.
With less than 4 boards to play Zia Mahmood -Jan Jansma became the new leaders, but in the last board they played a 6 slam, the Q position wasnt favorable and lose the championship…[button link=»http://csbnews.org/?p=27806″ size=»small» window=»yes»]See what hapened[/button]
