Meltzer joins Kasle in Senior Bowl
Rose Meltzer, the first woman to win the Bermuda Bowl and captain of the reigning Rosenblum Cup champions, will have another shot at a world title this fall.
Meltzer's team won a playoff for the second spot in the Senior Bowl at the World Bridge Championships in Shanghai, China, starting in late September. The tournament, the U.S. Senior Bridge Championship, took place in North Bethesda MD July 2--7. Meltzer is playing with Grant Baze, Alan Sontag, Roger Bates, Bart Bramley and Lew Stansby.
They defeated the team captained by Carolyn Lynch (Dennis Dawson, David Berkowitz, Mark Lair, Neil Chambers and John Schermer).
Earlier in the tournament, the Gaylor Kasle team captured the No. 1 spot in the Senior Bowl. Kasle's squad is Russ Arnold, Bobby Wolff, Dan Morse, Dan Gerstman and John Sutherlin. They defeated Meltzer in the final.
Meltzer, the losing finalist, then played Lynch, winner of a playoff among semifinal losers, to determine the second team.
