Loveblock Pairs in the Starting Blocks

Welcome to the annual NZ-Wide Pairs. This year we have a great turn-out of 56 clubs from Kerikeri to Invercargill. As usual on this night and site there will be special mention of the slowest results to arrive. If everyone gets it right we should have a wrap by midnight .. which hasn't happened yet in the six years previous. Something to aim for.

While you're waiting you can have a read of some of our resident contributor Vil Gravis' articles below or check out the results of today's X-Clubs - some HUGE hands both ways. There were 346 pairs played, the field being topped with a score of 74.88% by Sam and Jo Simpson of Tauranga. With possibly three times that field tonight it's going to be exciting.
