The Top Bidders for March 2021
This month’s competition winner, with a score of 68/80 on a tough set of hands, is:
Alper Daldal (BBO; sazan68)
from Istanbul, Turkey
52 years old, Alper has been playing bridge for 30 years. He also enjoys solving bridge problems and discuss interesting bridge hands. Like most bridge players, he has not been able to play live bridge due to Corona, but thanks to his bridge club and BBO he has been able to play online bridge for the past year.
Congratulations to Alper who wins 50 BB$ and a 1 month subscription to Prime!
But remember, we also randomly drew a winner from among the participants and…. tadaaaaa the winner is:

Seven of the top eight made the honor roll this month, and Luwen Koh’s excellent score of 65/80 on this tough set widens the gap between himself and the chasing pack. There is still a long way to go in this competition, though.
Remember that only your best nine results during the year count towards the annual competition, so entering every month will allow you to drop your lowest scores. For those with an average score of just below 50/80, one good month will move you up onto the leader board.
