The prize for this week's Deal of the Week Contest is a Round Trip Ticket to Iceland during the Icelandair Bridge Tournament in February 1998. Iceland is a small country, but bridge is big there. The competition from local players at the Iceland tournament is fierce. The strong bridge, breathtaking scenery, and friendly people combine to make this tournament a very special event each year. Fred Gitelman, President of Bridge Base Inc., wrote an article about his wonderful experience at this tournament. Sorry, entry for this Deal of the Week Contest is now closed.

Not too long ago Iceland established itself as a force in international bridge by winning the Bermuda Bowl World Championships. This week's deal was played in the finals of that event. The deal has been rotated to make South the declarer.

Since Icelandair has donated the prize, the contest will consist of some questions regarding the remarkable achievement of the Iceland team in the Bermuda Bowl Championships. You must answer the four following questions:

  1. In which year did Iceland win the Bermuda Bowl?
  2. Which team did Iceland beat in the final of the Bermuda Bowl?
  3. What was the final IMP score?
  4. What are the names (both first and last) of the six players on the winning Iceland team (spelling counts!)?


You don't have to own the World Championship books or other Bridge literature to answer these questions. The answer is right here on the internet. In fact, a link to the answer can be found somewhere in the pages of Bridge Base Inc.'s web site!
Happy Searching!
