The Top Bidders for Set 2021-7
After getting our first perfect score last month, we have another. Scoring 80/80 this month is the man whose BBO blog discussing the problems is fast becoming a fan favorite:
Hanoi Rondon (BBO: hanoi5) from Santiago, Chile
Hanoi Rondón is a bridge teacher who has been in love with the game from the moment he discovered his first bridge article in a newspaper some 27 years ago. Originally from Venezuela, he currently lives in Chile. He teaches bridge online and has a YouTube channel called ‘Bridge Entretenido’.
Congratulations to him, he 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:
Joseph Hicks (absolut0)
Congratulations to Joseph Hicks who wins a 3 month subscription to Prime!
