A pair of ACBL Board members won the Super Senior Pairs Monday evening, capturing the title in the event — restricted to players 70 and older — by two boards.
Jeff Taylor, the former ACBL Board member representing District 20 (covering Washington, Oregon, Northern California, Nevada and Hawaii) and Craig Robinson, the current Board member representing District 4 (Central New York, Eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, Southern New Jersey) and former ACBL president (2011), won the four-session contest by a comfortable margin.
The runners-up in the contest were Leonard Melander and Bert Newman.
Taylor and Robinson were in second place after Sunday’s qualifying round, but their modest session scores of 56.08% and 61.54% were enough to see them into the winners circle.
With the victory, the duo denied Ed Lazarus a fifth consecutive win in the contest. Lazarus had won the event from its debut in 2010 to 2013.
