New Pair Go Winners

British Pair Go Championships
Sat, 8 Jun 2024

Eleven male-female pairs made it to the 2024 British Pair Go Championships. This time the organiser, Pat Ridley, used the Leicester County Bridge Club in the north of Leicester as the venue, following on from its use for Youth and Candidates' events.

Unfortunately only three strong pairs attended to make the top group, with local player Toby Manning acting as a ghost. There were eight pairs in the handicap group with grades from 5.5k to 28k. A lot of these pairs featured youngsters from Cheadle Hulme, but also pairs from Wokingham and Lancaster attended.

Winning all three games to win the Championship title were UCL's Yiran Zheng and Solomon Wong (shown below), playing for the first time. Second were Natasha Regan (Epsom) and Piers Shepperson (Nottingham). Results

In the handicap group Megan Upton and Elliott Barlow (shown below) beat Olivia Jennison and Claude Robinson in the final to take the title. Others on two wins were Lauren Hindmarch and Bjorn Eurenius; Helen Harvey and James Zhao.

Youngsters Audrey and Aidan Fung were judged the best dressed pair. Toby Manning was best dressed in the top group and also won the Pair Go Quiz on matching railway stations to their locations.
