2017 Australia-Wide Open Pairs
Your Personal Results Booklet
Welcome to your personal results analysis booklet for the 2017 Australia-Wide Open Pairs. (If you log into this booklet with your name, the statistics will be personalised for your results.)
You will have already received your first booklet on the day of the event -- an instructional booklet with advice on how to bid and play the hands. This is your second booklet, looking at the actual results from around Australia.
98 of the participating clubs have submitted all of their travelling scoreslips, and the event has been scored across the field. With over 750 tables submitted for each board, and over 22000 boards played overall, this is your chance to directly compare your results with players from all over the country, board by board.
For each board we have displayed a full national travelling scoreslip, plus a summary of the most common contracts and results, with some additional comments about the final results. The summary also shows your own result, and also the results of one of the top ranked pairs. This way you can see exactly what you needed to do if you wanted to win the event!
Note: this feature is only available if you selected your name from the box on the previous page. Also, two clubs (Monaro and Maylands) were unable to submit their board scores for this feature.
This booklet also contains the list of the top 660 pairs in the event, on pages 38-43.
The top five pairs are:
1. Mick Koziol & Jim Hayes Gawler
2. Louise Payne & Peter Quin Parkes
3. Richard Lawrie & Douglas Newlands Geelong
4. Chris Brady & Zhihong Miao Gawler
5. Harry Rose & Kathy Rozendorn Caulfield Park
Best WA pair: Colin Payne & Robert Stick Denmark
Best QLD pair: Carole Cooke & Bill Peters Tamborine Mtn
Prizes will all be listed in this document. In all cases, winners need to contact us at mail@australianbridge.com to give us your postal address. (If you see a friend's name in a prize notice, be sure to let them know and congratulate them).
I hope you enjoyed the event and find this booklet interesting and informative.

Comments:
About 100 pairs took all their 11 tricks for an 87% score. If you did it by finding the recommended play (rather than by getting defensive help) you've done well -- this was a tough hand to start with.
At the other extreme, pairs who went one off have a learning opportunity here: you have four hearts, two spades, images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)A, images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)AK, and can take a club ruff at any time for the 10th trick.
Book prizes for making 11 tricks (that's 450, not 650 as mistakenly written in the souvenir booklet) go to Ralph Gout and Pauline Bancroft of Toowong and J Bertalli and N Hodgson of Benalla.

Comments:
The AWP players did better than the experts on this deal, with most of you staying out of the bad game. Those who bid 3NT gave the defenders a challenge, as quite a few pairs made 3NT.

The first trap is avoid a heart lead into East's bid suit - that will cost one trick, but even then you will still have time to get the hearts running eventually. The contract also fails (on any lead) if the defenders switch to clubs after they get back on lead. They should take a diamond, a spade, and three tricks in whichever suit they set up.

Comments:
We have a tough set of hands today (purely by accident -- contrary to popular belief, these are not "set" hands).

Many of the pairs who made 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) received a spade lead away from the king, making the play easy. Given that North has most of the defensive strength, it is wise to make a passive lead (since South won't be much help). Unfortunately, there aren't any truly passive leads in that hand, and any lead looks dangerous.

About a third of the 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) declarers received the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)A lead. This happens to be a big success on this deal, but I'm guessing North ruined the good start by switching to spades after winning the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)K.

Comments:
The most popular contract was 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes). The only auction I can think of that will get there is 1images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) from East, 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) from South, which means people are making a simple overcall on 19 HCP. I don't mind this, but it's probably not a long-term winner -- there are many hands where partner will pass 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) and you will miss 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) or 3NT.
This also means the East players failed to reopen with a takeout double of 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes); again, the pessimistic approach can work sometimes (especially at this vul) but it's not usually right to defend at the two-level with a doubleton trump. Note that the "total number of trumps" is 17.
Prize for unique top: John Lees and Marleen Medhat of Undercroft for 1NTxx by East.

Comments:
A few pairs played in 3NT on this deal. In modern methods, a 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) response over 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) shows five, so North should be raising 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes). Why does it show five? Because if you have only four hearts, you must have a four-card minor, or you must have spade support. You could be 3-4-3-3, but that's also not a 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) bid -- responding 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) will lead to much smoother auctions. In fact, many experts now play 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) as totally artificial, including all balanced hands and three-card invitational raises (see the February issue of Australian Bridge magazine for details). Even if you don't play this convention, I'd still recommend responding 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) on balanced hands too strong for 1NT.

Comments:
This deal demonstrates the importance of competitive bidding. In past editions of this booklet I have discussed the value of being in game with a nine-card fit and good distribution, even if you don't have the values. When North overcalls 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) (or 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), Michaels, spades and a minor), I think South is easily worth a 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) raise, especially at this vulnerability.

From West's perspective, it is dangerous to defend 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) undoubled. You were getting at least 60% for playing 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) (85% if you play it well). If you defend 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) undoubled, you only get 28%. If you double, you get 50% -- not great, but give NS credit for bidding 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes).

Comments:
5images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) is a good contract; you were unlucky if you bid it and went down because of the bad break.
There is some justice in the hand though. If West made an undisciplined opening on the flat 11-count, that might alert North to the bad break and allow a safe stop in 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes).
Quite a few pairs made 3NT, which shouldn't happen. By the time West gets on lead with the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)J, East should have given a clear signal to ask for a spade lead. (If you aren't playing any attitude signals, that's probably the most important thing for you to add to your repertoire.)

Comments:
At the time of writing, the most popular results on this board are 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) making two, and 3NT down three (both at 47 tables). Compare that with over 300 tables making 450 on Board 15, for example.
It's a tough hand with a lot of options. 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) and 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) can both make nine tricks, but in practice the pairs in 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) were far more successful. It pays to know your own strengths; if your partner is more comfortable in a 5-2 fit than a 4-3 fit, you probably should correct 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) to 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes).
Book prizes for +140 go to Carolyn Bulger and Margaret Maxwell @ the Bay and Thelma Hellberg and Heather Young of Bundaberg.

Comments:
The field was fairly balanced between 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) and 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), so both sides had plenty of scope to improve their score here. Selling out to 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) is a terrible move for EW, with both partners having a good hand with heart shortage -- to be honest, I can't imagine either hand passing over 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes).
Once EW gets to 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), someone needs to make the decision to save in 5images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes). This shouldn't be too hard if South makes a weak jump overcall, or if North bids the hearts first (as current Australian representative David Beauchamp did in our example auction). When the deal was originally played, only one table stopped at the four-level.
Prize for unique top: Joan Rickers and Eunice Howard of Rockingham for 6images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)x.

Comments:
This deal illustrates an important feature of Matchpoints, which was recently discussed in Andrew Robson's Pairs Tactics column in Australian Bridge magazine. When you find yourself in a bad contract, don't panic; there is a good chance that many others are in the same spot, and you still have the chance to outplay them.
Here, there are about 150 other pairs in 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)x, and some are in 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes); a rare example of a hand where -200 is not a terrible score (if you can get it).
Book prizes for 500 against 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)x go to Neil Waters and Jan Cluff of Cairns and Monica Quilty and Shirley Strike of Townsville.

Comments:
It's been a tough first ten hands (and let me again stress that these are not "set" hands) but here we finally have an easy auction. Two openings hands and a big nine-card fit. It's a tough defensive problem though.

The popular lead was the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)A, which concedes 11 tricks immediately. So does a club, which was surprisingly less popular. The most popular lead, incredibly, was the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)K, which doesn't give up a trick at all. Sadly, East usually switched to a club after winning the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)A. At this point, I'm afraid I don't have a simple answer as to how East should get this right -- as an "at the table" problem it's probably just too hard.

Comments:
A lot of people stopped in 2NT here. This is far too conservative (assuming East managed to show his notrump range). Even opposite 20-21, I have a feeling that four of a major has better chances than 2NT, and I'd be happy to use Stayman even at the risk of ending up in 3NT.
As you can see, notrumps plays better than spades on this deal. Those who played in 3NT did brilliantly; if you made the choice to play there deliberately, well done!
Book prizes go to Craig Hampton and Patricia Bourke of Goulburn, Kerri Sheppard and Jennifer Zikos of Ocean Grove, and Antoinette Ihlenfeldt and Faye Hay of Tamborine.

Comments:
Like Board 8, we have to choose between two seven-card fits here, and I was surprised that hardly anyone played in hearts. Our given auction, where Matthew Thomson corrected to hearts after West's takeout double, seems hard to avoid.

2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) is a lot easier to play, and you can't go wrong taking average actions on difficult hands -- but you will need an overtrick for a decent score. It probably came down to guessing the hearts; if North plays low when you lead a heart through, it's tempting to guess wrongly and put in the jack.

There are 100 NS pairs in 2NT -- that's too many to be a fouled board. If anyone can explain this bizarre result, please contact me.

Comments:
Most people were in the right contract here, split evenly between nine and ten tricks. The play is discussed in detail in the souvenir booklet.

There are more than 60 pairs in 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), and 150 pairs in 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), so you might want to take a look at what went wrong there. The NS bids (1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)-1NT-2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)) are fairly obvious, and the only likely variation is possible intervention from EW. I can understand why South might compete over 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) -- although it's wrong -- but competing over 4images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) is far too much.

Comments:
Possibly the flattest board in the set, and why not? Everyone knows what to do with eight-card suits. Under normal circumstances you'd need to be worried about a five-level decision, when NS compete to 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), but at this vulnerability that shouldn't be a problem.

Having said that, out of the 34 tables where NS did play in 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), 25 EW pairs forgot to double. That's a massive swing: defending for 200 is worth 13%, while 500 is worth 95%.

Comments:
When I learned to play, these hands would routinely start 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)-2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), forcing. In the Australian team playoff, where these boards were originally played, every table bid 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)-1NT-pass.
At club level in Australia, the wide-ranging 1NT has never really caught on, and almost everyone went minus. Paul Marston's new book, the 2/1 edition of The Language Of Bidding, should be a useful step toward setting us on the right path.
Even if you play 1NT as 6-9, this hand is only worth about 9.5 points anyway.
Book prizes for beating 1NT go to Yuri Vizel and Jacob Greenberg of Grand Slam and Judith Bornstein and Margot Slonim of Caulfield Park.

Comments:
Just like Board 9, the field gave up far too easily on this hand. Hands with 6-5 shape should usually play in game if partner can support either suit. And, as I've mentioned earlier in this booklet, nine-card fits should play in game when you have good distribution (and the North hand has very good distribution).

Similarly, where NS did bid 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), the same arguments apply to EW: selling out to 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) is far too timid. Even 6images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) is a good save.

Comments:
And here we are yet again: a nine-card spade fit and a void, yet more than 400 pairs defended 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes). West needs to get things started with an overcall, either 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) or a Michaels 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes).

Getting into the auction is just the first part of the battle; many people went down in 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes). The suit combination in the club suit is worth learning; it comes up a lot, including several times today. In general, a lot of fairly weak suits can be picked up by leading through doubleton honours (although sometimes, as here, you need to guess who has the doubleton).

Comments:
After a couple of double-game swings, we're back at the one-level again. We often say that the first pair to reach 1NT wins on hands like this, so let's see how it turned out: Where NS played 1NT, popular results were one off (NS 56%) and making (NS 65%) -- it didn't matter much whether it made or not. Where West played 1NT, EW scored 60% or 90%, depending on the overtrick.
For both sides, dropping an unnecessary trick in the play was expensive (especially for the vulnerable side). The first to notrump rule does assume that you will play the cards well.

NS winners' result: 6images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)-N, NS1370 (NS 99%)

Comments:
There are times when it is correct to play in five of a minor at Matchpoints, but these hands usually involve a ten-card fit, or nine-card fit with good distribution. Occasionally it will be right with an eight-card fit (for example, when you know you have a weak spot somewhere, especially in the opponents' suit).

This is an eight-card fit, and South has a balanced hand. North does have a void, but it is opposite South's suit. 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) scored 52% for the overtrick (if the overtrick had been unavailable, the score would have been lower, but you do still beat all the pairs who missed game). In 3NT, you would score at least 64%, but more likely 78%. 6images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), of course, scored 100%.

Comments:
Another one of our few super-flat boards, with everyone in the right spot and most people losing to the stiff king of spades. We briefly discussed the various play options in the souvenir booklet, but here are the odds:
A small spade to the queen will pick up trumps 27% of the time (6% stiff king, 21% doubleton). Playing the ace will win 12%, but in half of those the king was onside, so small to the queen also works. Running the jack, and subsequently running the eight, picks up K105, K95, K10 and K9 (not K5, as then you would finesse into the ten on the second round) -- 26% total.
In summary, you will usually lose a trump trick however you play, but dropping the king is the inferior line.

Comments:
Regular readers of these Australia-Wide booklets (and of our Novice magazine) will know how I feel about defending 1NT. Let's see how it worked out:
The majority of declarers made 9 or 10 (NS 73+%). A heart lead would hold it to 8 (NS 60%). If West doubles 1images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), East might compete to 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes). This may make (EW 93%) but will probably go one off (EW 59%). Doubling on a flat hand is risky at this vul (two off would be a disaster); but if West had been non-vul I would strongly recommend it.
Book prizes for 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) go to Helen Chamberlin and Neil Strutton of Toowong and Billie Skinner and Anneta Doktorovich of Undercroft.

Comments:
Here is a real rarity: 3NT making everything from 4 to 11 tricks (and a decent number of tables with each result). You won't see this kind of thing anywhere else but this event.
Every pair who made 4 tricks received the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)Q lead. I assume declarer ducked twice, then West switched to diamonds, and declarer took the heart finesse. 11 tricks is a lot tougher; all I can think of is images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)A lead and a club switch.
Book prizes for making 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) go to Richard and Jill Ritter of Central Coast.

Comments:
In the souvenir booklet I said you would need an overtrick to get a good score, but in practice making nine was enough. Not many pairs made overtricks, and of course there are always plenty of people in 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) on hands like this.

As mentioned in the booklet, the spades are the key to the defence. Even though South has no entries to cash the spades, just the threat of cashing them forces declarer to cash out his nine tricks. North must unblock the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)K on the first round, otherwise he will not be able to lead a third round of the suit.

Comments:
Our given auction, from Peter Gill and Matthew Thomson, did a great job of keeping NS out of the auction. If EW do get to buy the hand in 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), that will be worth 83%. (I still have trouble accepting that you can get 83% for a result that is shared by 140 other pairs; that illustrates how huge this field really is).
If NS can get to 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) or 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), they will actually be the ones to score 82% (if they play it well). Even if they forget to finesse against the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)J, one off in 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) is still worth 46%.

Comments:
NS can make 5images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) here. It's not a great contract, but note how useful the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)9 is (compared with the similar holding on Board 21 in the spade suit). After the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)10 drops under the jack on the first round, you can go back to the North hand and run the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)9.

Anyway, only four pairs made 5images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), and NS's realistic target is 130 or 140. If West overcalls 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), North can make a takeout double, but it's doubtful that would be enough to get a 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) or 4images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) bid from South at this vulnerability. At nil vul, the prospect of risking two off would be more appealing (and the prospect of trying to get two off defending 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) would be less appealing).

Comments:
This is one of the toughest play hands of the set, and well over half of the declarers failed to make nine tricks. One appealing line of play is to set up two heart tricks, planning to win two tricks in each suit, hoping something else turns up somewhere.
The 9th trick shouldn't be a problem. If West ever plays the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)9, that will set up a finesse against East's images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)10. If West ever leads a diamond (picking up East's jack) you can finesse against the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)Q. And a club lead will obviously give you the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)J. Playing out your hearts like that, king first, goes against normal card play habits, but it does set up guaranteed tricks.

Comments:
There seem to be a lot of hands today where both sides have some play for game. I do feel like the total number of game hands is greater than average, but that does happen sometimes with random hands -- hopefully no one will complain if all next year's hands are partscores!

Well done to all the pairs who made nine tricks in hearts. If South leads the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)K you can set up the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)J to throw a diamond loser; if South leads the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)Q, you can assume the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)A is offside and duck two rounds (rather than wasting your king). One off in 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) is a fine result on the hand, as 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) makes easily.

Comments:
A lot of game hands today, but not many slams. This is the big one, with three slams available. 6images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) and 6NT are solid, while 6images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) needs a 3-2 trump break (I actually think 7NT is a better spot than 6images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), but today 6images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) makes). Eight pairs made 6NT (you can only see five in the traveller below, as three made an overtrick). Four made 6images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) and three made 6images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes). Three played in 6images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) -- unlucky!
The given auction, from David Beauchamp and Ian Thomson, was the best auction from the playoff but still not ideal. West's 5images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) bid was premature, though understandable. If East could have bid 5NT instead of 6images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), with the understanding that it said "pick a slam", that would have been better; failing that, 6images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) seems right.

Comments:
The top contract here was 1images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes); this should go one off for 45% to EW, but in practice most declarers made it for 71% or 82%. So, assuming best defence (one off) it looks like NS were right to pass out 1images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes). Right?

Wrong. Does North want to try to take seven tricks defending diamonds (for a mere +50) or try to take seven tricks in one of those lovely majors (for +80)? Even with the 4-1 heart break, NS can make 140. Even playing in the 5-1 spade fit, there is +80 available. And of course, don't forget the old faithful "first to 1NT wins" rule; if you can take seven tricks defending in their suit, you can surely make 1NT.

Comments:
It seems reasonable to lose two diamonds and a club in 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), but in practice many people lost three diamonds. Some even lost four: a diamond to the king, then a diamond to the jack, and ultimately the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)10 and images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)9 as well.

Starting with eight top tricks, playing for the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)A onside might work, although you'll still need another trick (a diamond ruff, or a club finesse). Maybe I'm biased by having seen all the hands, but I stand by my original suggestion of playing for North to have the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)K (or clubs 3-3). If you can make four club tricks, you're sure to get a great score.

Comments:
This is the last board to be played by a decent portion of the field (only 38% of the field played it, with Board 36 played by just 11%). Even with the reduced field, you still stand to get a great score for bidding and making the 26-point game alongside 200 other pairs. Matchpoints are being donated by pairs who missed game, went down in game, or bid on over 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) instead of doubling it. Only one pair doubled 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), scoring an outright top even after dropping a trick in defence.

I'm surprised at the number of people failing in 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes); I actually can't think of a losing line in that contract.

Comments:
Nearly every pair in the Playoff bid 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) here, but they didn't have to. If you read the article on cue raises in the July issue of Australian Bridge Novice Edition, you will have methods in place to distinguish between a three-card and four-card raise here. Opposite a four-card raise, South should obviously bid game; opposite three-card support, game is not so great. Even better, North could have bid 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes); as a passed hand that was unable to open a non-vulnerable 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), it can be assumed that North must have spade support to be making such a strong bid. This would help South to recognise the misfit. Simply staying out of game is worth 85%.

Comments:
While every East in the Playoff opened 1NT, I imagine that most players in this event opened 1images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes). The auction after that wouldn't be totally comfortable. If the auction starts 1images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)-1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), what should East bid next? 1NT is an underbid (12-14) and might not get us to game (although in truth the hand is pretty awful for a 15-count). 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) would be a reverse (a good 16+) and 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) should be a six-card suit. Still, most pairs managed to get to game and find the 6-2 fit, so obviously the problem wasn't too tough.

The play involves the same suit combination (in hearts) which we discussed in the club suit on Board 18.

Comments:
With the majority playing in 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) or 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) by East, I'm guessing that most East players were allowed to overcall 1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes). This would mean that most North players responded 1images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes). The jury is still out on whether North's correct bid is 1images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) or 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), but this hand certainly demonstrates one of the arguments in favour of 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes).
As usual, the vulnerability decided the results. East's heart overcall with just an ace and a king led to -100, not a good result against South's 90 in 1NT. Worse, many competed to 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) for -200. At nil vul, the results table would look a lot better for EW. The moral: don't make dubious competitive bids when vulnerable.

Comments:
Speaking of vulnerability, we end with a hand where 7 out of 8 scores are multiples of 100. There were a few pairs who made their contracts, with success in 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), 1NT and 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes); all contracts that score under 100. So even one off is a bad board in theory (although in practice there are enough 200s and 300s to ensure that -100 isn't a total disaster).

Thank you for playing in Australia's biggest event. Our next event is the Australia-Wide Novice Pairs in May.
