Haven’t looked for the Airport Bridge Club’s year-end master point totals (I suspect that club manager Bill Finkelstein, late reporting to the ACBL this month, probably hasn’t posted them yet), but I checked out the list at the Bridge Centre of Niagara in St. Catharines, Ont., after the game finished Friday.
Theirs are hung out on clipboards, so I had to turn back a few pages to find my name in 260th place. I earned 6.28 Canadian master points which, unlike the dollar, are taken at par by the ACBL. On another sheet, I discovered that I played there 19 times and had an average of just over 51%.
Leading the list for 2013 in St. Catharines were Jeremy Smee with 215.29, George Morrissey with 156.40 and Brian McCartney with 150.01. They were the only ones in triple digits.
