2015 New Zealand Open
  May 23 - 24
  
  Venue : Wellington Bridge Club, 17 Tinakori Road, Thorndon, Wellington.


The tournament had a small field - but tough - it seemed tough to me anyway! After five rounds we ended up with four people with four wins from five games:

  • Yao Lu (Robyn)
  • Chahine Koleejan
  • Jimmy Yuan
  • Longyang Li

We could not play two more rounds to find a winner, so they were declared equal champions.

A beginner's division was also held and was won by Tom Liu. Congratulations to all the winners!

Here are the results:
