Smurf Power takes over the Bridge Club

Sam Beaumont’s trusted Papa Smurf card protector came good on August 15 with a win over 20 players. She arrived at the top table with a mountain of chips, eventually getting to the heads up with Nick Jeffery. Thd final phase lasted 20 minutes, with the lead swinging in Nick’s favour, however a push with kings that was called ended in tota; dominance for the final hand. They split the remaining £140 prize pool between them, £40 having already gone to Barry Leadbetter and £20 to Eden Cragg. Kenny Gee was the bubble boy.

Barry, Barry and Harry were our top three

On the bubble, Daryl Hitchings. This victory took Bazzer to the top spot in the Overall League, Grand Masters' League and Assassins' League. There is much work to do in the season's final tournament on August 29 to ensure that the chaos ceases!

His heads up opponent won £60 and the Inbetweeners’ title, third place went to Fiona Herron (£40) and Bert Mitchell (£20).
