The team captained by Hansa Narasimhan earned a spot in the Venice Cup at the World Championships in Shanghai, China, this fall by defeating the squad led by Kathleen Sulgrove 205-129 in the United States Women's Bridge Championship in Schaumburg IL.
Sulgrove now goes into a playoff with the winner of the Lynn Baker-Shawn Quinn match, still in progress late Tuesday afternoon.
