Saturday was the 16th(!) Dan Hirschman Youngest Life Master Party and KO Event which commemorates the time that Dan (or Danny, as we all knew him back then) became the ACBL’s youngest ever life master as a 10-year-old back in 1995. Marty Hirschman and Marcy Abramson were, as always, gracious hosts to more than 80 bridge players in their home for a great party. One of Marty’s duties as host every year is to organize the KO event for the evening. This edition featured 21 teams, all stuffed to the max with the great food available.
Unfortunately, my team was upset in the first round on the following three hands:
1) You hold: ♠xx ♥Ax ♦AK10xxx ♣xxx in fourth chair
2) You hold: ♠Kxx ♥Kxx ♦Axx ♣AJxx
3) You hold: ♠J9 ♥10xx ♦QJ10xxxx ♣x
Fortunately for us, this KO event includes a consolation round. We managed to recoup and emerge victorious from the consolation bracket to win the coveted consolation trophy:
Thanks to Marty and Marcy for a great party!
