Italian stars Lorenzo Lauria and Alfredo Versace have left the team of Zaleski to rejoin again Angelini’s team for a long term contract. Untill 2010 Lauria-Versace have played with their sponsor and friend Francesco Angelini. But the sensational exclusion of Fantunes from the New Blue Team in 2010 aroused much controversy in Italian bridge.
As a consequence Lauria and Versace broke their historical relationship with Angelini and signed for the Polish born French financier Romain Zaleski.
With Zaleski’s team Lauria and Versace won the 2010 and 2011 Italy cup.
Also Valerio Giubilo moved from Zaleski to Angelini. When Francesco Angelini will play with Alfredo Versace, Lorenzo Lauria will partner with Giubilo.
Negotiations with a third pair are still under way.
