    62nd Winter Nationals Online 2021

    62nd Winter Nationals took place online on Realbridge & BBO fom January 16 - 26, 2021. The flagship duplicate event was played in Gold & Silver categories with Gold attracting 38 teams & Silver 72 teams. The event was very well managed by Sri Sudhir Aggarwal - CTD & his team of directors and technical management personnel. The event was very well scheduled with Gold & Silver finalists enjoying a rest day and had a few glitches. A suggestion for the management would be that as many participants are not so much familiar with computers, internet and thus online bridge a layman type of detailed set of instructions are needed so that everyone is aware of basic operation on online platforms and the consequences if the baisc operation is not followed. Simply assuming that eveyone is familiar with online bridge and is at the same level is just not fair. The summarised results are as follows:

    Ruia Gold Day 1-8, 38 Teams on Realbridge

    1. Formidables (Kiran Nadar, B Satyanarayana, Rajeshwar Tewari, Keyzad Anklesaria, Jaggy Shivdasani, Sandeep Thakral)

    These pertain to times when I used to report a deal a week or longer time. If you like Law of total tricks there are some interesting deals. Some of the earlier deals were reported in the process of my evolvement as a bridge player.Some of deals are from ACBL NABCs & WBF tournaments. Also there are some interesting deals on bridge ethics that senior bridge players should have for youngsters. I discontinued this section as I was not finding enough interesting deals in Lucknow.
