Ruffing on the River

Thursday, the first full day of bridge in Memphis began with a bang. Heralding the 75th anniversary of the ACBL, new ACBL winners were crowned. Jordan Cohen and Barry Senesky just eked out enough matchpoints to qualify for Day Two of the Flight A North American Pairs. It was kismet.
