Two events were held - Duplicate team event for Nimita Agarwal Trophy and Pairs event for Surendra Singh Gupta Trophy.13 teams consisting of players from UP, Uttarakhand, Delhi, Haryana, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh participated in the tournament. Participation was less than expected. The Alexander Club is a nice venue for bridge with limited number of teams and proved to be a nice host providing breakfast, lunch, evening snacks,dinner & cocktail for the participants. We need such generaous hosts to promote bridge in UP. Meerut Bridge Association led by Justice BP Singh & Sri CP Agarwal deserves all the credit.

    Lohia Memorial at Kanpur 2017

    31st Seth Sriniwas Lohia Memorial Bridge Tournament took place at Ganges Club, Kanpur from April 7-9, 2017. The tournament from past two year is being played in the format where apart from main duplicate and pairs event there is a silver event on day 2 for non qualifiers which allowed everyone to play on all 3 days. Lohia tournament ,organised by Sri JK Lohia in memory of his father, is known for its flawless hospitality year after year which includes providing for breakfast & dinner apart from lunch & evening snacks in the entry fee. 15 outstation teams are provided free accomodation in the Dharmshala Rajasthan Bhawan from where free transport is also provided to the venue. Though hospitality is best the tournament lacks in technical terms as bidding boxes are not used due to which there is a lot of noise in the hall where main event takes place. The organisers would do well to introduce bidding boxes from next year. The tournament was well directed by Sri Ranju Bhattacharya as CTD assisted by Sri Gora Roy Chaudhari and myself. Sri Gajendra Singh did the scoring.

    Duplicate - Sri RK Lohia Trophy

    Last year I had suggested on this page the need of BFI formalising dates hence a calendar for its big and small events. It is indeed my pleasure to announce that BFI has worked out a schedule for all its main events with monthly/weekly slots given to all the main events. Lohia tournament henceforth would take place in third week of February every year. This year tournament had to be shifted to April as February dates clashed with Assembly elections in Kanpur. 41 teams ,up 7 from last year, took part in the duplicate event and played 7 rounds of 8 boards of swiss league on day 1to determine 7 qualifiers and one best local team for the 7 rounds of 8 boards super league on day 2.The results are as follows:

    58th Winter Nationals at Jaipur 2016

    58th Winter Nationals took place at Sawai Man Singh Indoor Stadium, Jaipur from December 12-18, 2016. The event was organised by Rajasthan Contract Bridge Association. The event was nicely organised led by Sri KP Mathur. Directors led by CTD Ranju Bhattacharya did their job well. Srinivasan Iyengar managed technical side well though I would advise him to put results on Bridgewebs in logical sequence. Rajasthani food was ok but in 2014 in the 56th edition food was better. It was a refreshing change to see the auto/e-rickshaw fares being reasonable though not to the extent locals would want. The particpation was poor with some attributing it to weather across northern India pushing train schedules haywire and some to demonetization of higher denomination currency done recently in our country. I fail to understand the second logic. If you love the game you would attend the most important bridge event in Indian calendar with your hard earned money irrespective of the fact that demonetization has squeezed availability of legitimate currency. A move towards cashless economy is inevitable across the world. This helps in keeping track of money which can otherwise go into terror fianancing and to all sorts of nefarious activities. So bridge tournament organisers are well advised to collect most of their money online and through debit/credit cards. Only consolation events and other on the spot events which require petty cash should be done with cash.If you come to a tournament because you have some spare illegitimate cash which can be used to play and buy results it is disastrous for the game. I am not a millionaire but even with my limited resources I participate comfortbaly paying my way through. The bridge motto is learn, earn and spend. If you love the game and want to with laurels in a sport bridge gives you that opportunity for a time span of at least 50 years. The sports is not just about money, off course financial security is important, but fitness, physical and mental pleasure and achivement satisfaction is more important. Please understand in todays context those who spend money on big sports tend to earn less than those who take part when it should be other way round. If it isnt it would give rise to colossal corruption, back room dealings and cheating by players. Normally those who spend big are riding on public money. So public pays twice/thrice once through sponsorship and other through viewership either in stadia or at home via TV, cable,dish,broadband, online subscriptions. This is just not done. Endorsement is a big racket and should never be part of player financial security. You would never know where the money is actually going via endorsement. It could be as bad as into terror financing. Whoever invented endorsement I dont think thought of its bad sides. No amount of market research, surveys can tell you its actual impact. What actually sells is good/outstanding product. Those who actually use endorsement are saying that they are not confident of its deliverance as there is no shortcut to success. The product has to be hardworking, persevering and should be fit of high quality. For bridge the ride is even more difficult as the viewership is limited to internet subscription. So if people dont spend on the game via entry fee it is difficult to see a viable financial model. Although in bridge viewgraph rooms should be charged and a few tables should be made premium spectator viewpoint to make the sport more viable. I have said sometime back (those who follow my page) that bridge tables should be without screens monitored by video cameras. You win on aukat. If you add big money to winning then the result is collosal cheating, doping and rigging. The reward is recognition, love and fame and not money especially in a poor country like ours. God save us from a stuff like Bridge Premier League on lines of crickets Indian Premier League where there is so much emphasis on money that it leads to cheating, womanising and all sorts of underhand dealings where players are offered more than what they can get underhand. The only league which has worked in our country is field nhockey's HIL which is only beacause its innovative and gives reasonable financial security to players though even there suspicious result(s) have been there. We have won junior World Cup and one of us is heading FIH legitimatly on performance. IPL has never helped the country and it is a pity for cricket in Indiua that a Jaichand is heading world body as Indian representative. If he had been thrown to Pakistan after selling his country , though not in IPL, I would have loved. Apart from IPL cricket operations are fairly well managed and idea of rejecting bureaucrats or politicans or professionals to run it is terrible. Those who play cricket at top level know about technicalities of the game and not nuances of administration. Without fail cricketers are hardly well educated. Some of them have the abiltity to obtain better degrees but they dont get time. If you want cricketers into cricket administration ask them to hold a good degree within playing time or after it and give interested players who have time a bit exposure at junior level in administration time to time. Marketing, Finance and Logistics planning have become too complex in modern time to be headed by a technical person. I believe there is a hearing of BCCI case in court and I hope saner counsel prevails and cricket loved by most of Indians comes out stronger. Bridge has been run in India by players from varied background but there is lack of professionalism. The body was headed by someone a few years back who was accused of running his household from association money with no accountabilty. The current incumbent thinks people from village earn a lot and the one before used to squeeze small associations of every pie. Closer home we have in our city an incumbent who also ran his house on association money and goes back on prizemoney offered in the national tournament, burdens home association by Rs 70000 , a princely sum, at the end of tournament when promised to run it on self sufficient basis with all interest on putting a 50 year old photo of himself in the souvenir and not checking spelling of Bridge on front page. The plan is to loot the fixed deposits of the association one way or another.These people should be beaten up thorughly and sent to Jail. And please note the association is a registered body under society act and holds elections every two years. I was on demonetization and digressed a bit. Though it is no doubt a good idea it has inconvenienced countrymen. If I am PM I would straightway apologise to people. But its not entirely his fault. We are a neck deep corrupt nation. Any idea with good intention is highjacked into racket. There is sabotage by opposition who instead of supporting and helping cleanse the dirt spend all their disrputing the parliament and inconveniencing people. I was just reading the papers all the mess of last 12 years is tried to be passed on to these few days or few months of inconveniencing. The biggest success of this act is breaking bone of terror financing and end of counterfiet currency. I am sure after reconciliation we would find some screws on black money. I would request countrymen to keep their eyes and ears open and if they come across some Jaichands who have sabotaged the well meaning act please pass on information to Enforcement Directorate or to your nearest Income Tax office. I am sure the phone numbers would be communicated to you soon. You could make anonymous call or identify yourself and get some minor reward. Please understand you are helping us make a clean, mean and powerful nation. We are a poor nation and need help from richer countries but on our terms. It doesnt help running from one nation to another and then finding us with precious little. Inspite of working business relations between countries there are wider issues which affect fund flow. For example you would not get anywhere if you are hoping to get money from both America and Russia or China and Japan. What would you get by becoming a tall world leader if your own countrymen cant even get two square meals properly. There is something called implementation. Please for gods sake stop doing rallies for state elections and concentrate on implementation. Sit in office do reviews and performance appraisals. And if you have made certain rules for ministers abide by them. No exceptions for any goddamn reason. What is happening in the country is misplaced priorites ? At Jaipur in our stadium hall there is IB. Give me a break. What the hell is IB doing in sports ? There are soldiers being killed on borders where is IB intelligence. How dare someone sends IB ? Concerned ministers are sleeping. Is IB supposed to snoop on opposition ? Go to its office and burn all the files and start afresh. We are not going to be in Congress mode of blackmailing. And if this work has been done for years please find all the ex directors of IB and stop their pensions. Ask them for written permissions if the orders were from ministers. And if it is done by any IAS in personal capacity tell these m*****f****rs to get out and get some honest officers even if they are from other service. The situation is alarmingly bad. We have promises to keep and the time is short. I would request all the countrymen to help in this work. Bureaucracy is supposed to work for you and not spend time playing Golf, making foreign trips and show their power to poor. District Magistrate or Collector apaka maai baap nahin hai. He/ She is your servant. Please ask for all the plans for you depending upon your category and your area. And if the results are not there or if there is any arrogancy or absence pitai karo. These people will have to address everyone by Aap or saheb. Enough of this corruption. Please take good care of your land. If you are landless or if your land has been bought please check who has bought. If it is any IAS or near family please inform BJP party office. Please realise ye sab kaam aapke padhe likhe log hi kar sakte hain. Dekhiye padhna likhna kitna jaroori hai. Agar aapake area mein sarkari school nahin hai ya kharab haalat mein hai to fir BJP party se sampark karen. Please again take BJP party workers help. We would take up matter with state govt. Congratulations to all Winter National winners. The detailed results are available at BFI website.

    6th Inter State National Bridge Championship at Ludhiana 2016

    6th Inter State National Bridge Championship took place at The Sutlej Club Ltd., Ludhiana from November 3-6, 2016. BFI should not schedule any of its National event around Diwali as Train reservations are hard to get and Flights are expensive. Poor scheduling of the 6th Inter State Nationals has resulted in only 18 teams taking part out of which 4 teams were of host Punjab, one BFI and one BFI Juniors.

    14th HCL International Bridge Championship at Delhi 2016

    14th HCL Bridge Championship took place at JW Marriott Hotel, Aero City, Delhi from October 19-23, 2016. The tournament carried a prize money of Rs 1.2 Cr making it the second highest prize money tournament in the international circuit. The flagship duplicate event was played in Gold and Silver categories with Gold attracting 41 teams and Silver 79 teams. The venue Marriott is nice and spacious but I wonder if it can accomodate more teams. As HCL event has become truly International ,with teams from Italy, Poland, Russia, Bulgaria, USA & Jordan participating, the venue should also match the stature of the event if it has to grow on to become primma donna. The food also has scope of improvement. Inspite of all this the event was very well managed by Sri Subhash Gupta - Organising Secretary, Sri Sudhir Aggarwal, Sri TC Pant and the team from HCL. The director team was led by Sri MBV Subrahmanyam CTD and Sri Ranju Bhattacharya Jt CTD assisted by Sri D Roy Chaudhary, Sri VK Sharma, Sri BG Daxindas, Sri Sanjay Chakraborty & Sri Narasinga Rao.

    Personally for me the event was very satisfying as results from U.P. and Lucknow both from where I am secretary of the association were good. Our full UP team ( 4 from Lucknow & 2 from Aligarh) which included me came fourth in Silver though we couldnt make it to intitial 24 and qualified from repechege to QF. AK Sinha from Lucknow won matchpoint pairs. A team from UP - Bridge Friends (Mukul Goel, RA Siddiqui, Ajay Garg, Om Hari Agarwal, Ajay Agarwal, Maj Gen HS Nanda) came a creditable 7th in the Silver swiss league but sadly couldnt progress to QF. Agarwal team from Allahabad/ Lucknow & Noida with one player from Kolkata (IK Agarwal, Sushil Agarwal, BN Rastogi, Amitabh Tayal, Col KK Sabharwal, Asit Kundu) qualified to Gold round of 12.
