When Robert Levin and Steve Weinstein stepped into the winning circle of the Silodor Open Pairs Friday night, it was their first win playing together in an NABC pair event in 12 years. (They won the World Series Open Champion Open Pairs in 2010.)

Positioned well at the start of the day, their 61% afternoon made them the leaders going into the final session. Weinstein was a little worried that their evening game might be shaky. He needn’t have been worried. Another 61% session secured the victory. They won by 125 matchpoints on a 90 top.

The runners up were Egyptians Wael Mohsen and Reda Wasfi Yaacoub. Jarend Lilienstein and Brian Blubok were a close third.
