Bridge players from the St. John‘s area did well in various 2013 Masterpoint competitions. There are two ACBL competitions, the Mini-McKenney that counts all Masterpoints won during the year and the Helen Shanbrom Ace of Clubs Award that only counts Masterpoints won in club-level games during the year.
The 2013 Mini-McKenney Winners
Congratulations to Mary Lou Martin who placed in the top 25 in the Rookie of the Year category of the 2013 Mini-McKenney.
To be eligible, players start the year with a Masterpoint holding of 0-5 points. Next year, Mary Lou will not be eligible for this category, or even the next two higher categories, as she won 82 Masterpoints during 2013 — well done Mary Lou!
