A most impressive debut for their new partnership! May it be their first of many big wins :)

I am sure I can speak on behalf of all Forums regulars in offering serious congratulations to Justin.

Thank you. Bob is amazing to play with, he never drops any tricks and never gets emotional/mad. It feels great to win.

FWIW this makes me the youngest grand life master ever also.

It is obv a participation award and I know that but it's still something I wanted a lot. It is a cool thing to tell non bridge players since they know grand master in chess, and when you spend your entire life from age 10 on playing a game it's still nice to get a participation award to recognize that.

Well done.
If future responses could be on topic, i.e. comparing the two suggested systems, rather than some alternative nutjob method, that'd be appreciated, thanks. - MickyB
