Bathurst squad wins USBC
The squad led by captain Kevin Bathurst defeated the reigning world champions captained by John Diamond in the final of the U.S. Bridge Championship on May 17 in Las Vegas. The Bathurst team — Bathurst, Dan Zagorin, Joe Grue, Justin Lall, Joel Wooldridge and John Hurd — will represent the U.S. at the upcoming world championships in Veldhoven, Netherlands in October as USA 2. This will be the youngest squad ever to represent the U.S. in the Bermuda Bowl. The average age of the team members is 31. (Marty Fleisher’s team — USA 1 — won the USBC last year.)
A complete report will appear in the July issue of the Bridge Bulletin.
