leggi in italiano »

The fifteenth and final round of the Copenhagen Bridge Invitational has been just played. A party and the final curtain will fall on of the first edition of this prestigious event sponsored by Consort Prince Henrik of Denmark.  Fredrik Nyström – Peter Bertheau won with a good margin. On the podium there is place for Italy: Norberto Bocchi and Agustin Madala win the silver. In third place Martens – Jassem. Well done to all.

Good performance of our players, beautiful image for Italy: in the official bulletin, and by the specialized  press, ample space is given to the performaces of Norberto and Agustin. A 3 NoTrump yesterday suggested the title “Bocchi’s magic touch” to the editor of the Official Bulletin; Tor Helness exclaimed “unbelievable” about a 4 Spades  only by ours made;  there have been spontaneous applause during the BBO Vugraph while Magnus Eidur Magnusson commented “It is no a case if  Bocchi won everything there is to win.”

In addition to the compliments Agustin and Norberto win  30,000 Danish Crowns offered as prizes for second place.
