It was a historic North American Bridge Championship. Eric Rodwell put together an unprecedented performance. Rodwell was second in the two-day Life Master Pairs, first in the two-day Open Board-A-Match Teams, first in the three-day Blue Ribbon Pairs, and first in the three-day Reisinger Board-A-Match Teams for a staggering 623.75 masterpoints [all platinum] for the ten days. This performance should solidify his standing as the top American player, if not the top player in the world.
On a more personal note, it was a successful NABC for me as well, even though I earned only about 1% of Rodwell's points. I created very fun partnerships with old friends Jenni Carmichael and Mike Develin, as well as new friend Adam Parrish. I also played a national event with my good friend and former regular partner Drew Hoskins. On top of that, there were two successful days with my student Michael. I had a good time with all of my partners this week, and learned something from each of them.
I have lots of hands to report... but not today. Now I just need rest!
