BBO Prime Bidders Challenge 2021 Final Standings

Congratulations to Luwen Koh (XReborned on BBO), winner of the 2021 competition along with 200 BB$!

In the exciting battle between the two leaders, Luwen Koh from Singapore returned his third consecutive score of 76/80 to win the 2021 ‘BBO Prime Top Bidders’ title by a margin of just 7 points. Commiserations go to our silver medalist, Hanoi Rondon from Santiago, Chile, who was one of only two players to score a perfect 80/80 during the year.

In the race for third place, Fergus chose an unfortunate time to return his worst score of the year, which left Dave Williams to squeak ahead of Douglas by just 2 points for the final place on the podium.

With a top four from Asia, South America, Europe and USA, the remainder of the Top 10 was made up of three Canadians and three more Europeans. Our leaderboard has at least one player from five of the six inhabited continents. Bradley is the leading representative from Oceania, whilst Luwen is the only Asian on the leaderboard despite plenty of entries throughout the year from players in China, India and Indonesia.

The leaderboard includes all players with at least eight scores who averaged more than 50/80. With more than 500 players entering the competition this year, these are the top 30 scores, so congratulations to everyone who makes the leaderboard. A special mention goes to those who made the leaderboard with less than nine scores (marked with an * in the list below). Worthy of particular note is Pete Law, who finished seventh overall despite only playing the last eight months. Had those players entered every month and maintained their average score, they would surely have been contenders for the title. We hope that many more players will make a point of entering every month in next year’s contest. Here’s a link to the January Bidders Challenge hands.
