AJB Dominates D7 North American Pairs

For the second straight year, teenagers from the Atlanta area won 1st and 2nd on the flight C district 7 NAP. In fact, this year they took 3rd as well. Congratulations to this year’s winners who will represent GA, SC, NC, and eastern TN at the spring NABC in Louisville: 1st Saachi Hingorani and Aashna Choudhary; 2nd Angie Green and Mili Raina, who I was going to play with in B but there’s a conflict w/ B and C at the nationals; 3rd Ricoh Das, who I also play with/teach, and Murphy Green.

Atlanta Junior Bridge is clearly doing some good things that will hopefully lead to more success in youth and junior international success in the coming years. I just hope getting beaten by kids doesn’t discourage the older players who are new to bridge or duplicate bridge from continuing to learn the game. And I hope that they don’t get used to winning every – it gets a harder to win in flight B, and much harder in flight A. The winners have been unable to tell me a favorite hand from the tournament to write about but see some of my previous and upcoming posts for a some of my interesting struggles with the same hands in flight A.
