The Rueful Rabbit — Down the rabbit hole…

Results: Paddy Walsh Invitational

Dear Bridge Players,

David Walsh just sent me the results of the Paddy Walsh Invitational held in the Galway Bridge Centre this weekend. There was a great field and great craic. This competition is held on the last Sat/Sun in August every year.

Congrats to Donal MacAonghusa emerged on top.

Donal is better known as a pro poker player and is based in the Connemara deep.
He has the ‘genial chancer’ look about him but anyone who scratches below the surface will realise that there is an awful lot going on under the hood. So this win comes as no surprise.

1st: Donal MacAonghusa – €500
Joint-2nd: Karel De Raeymaeker – €250
Joint-2nd: John Clarson – €250

Ist Session: Ciaran Coyne €100
2nd Session: Richard Boyd €100
3rd Session: Tom Hanlon €100
Best Lady/Junior; Bernie Rafferty €100

Well done again to David for promoting and organising this great annual competition. Fergal O’Boyle directed to his usual excellent standards.

Here are the totals for the top 10 of 24 runners.

1 Donal MacAonghusa 191.5
2 John Clarson 191.0
2 Karel De Raeymaeker 191.0
4 Ciaran Coyne 189.0
