Sapan-Vinay pip JM-Key to win BFAME Friendship Pairs at Ahmedabad

June 5, 2013

Brief results of BFAME Friendship Pairs (Full results can be seen here.)

The tournament commenced with a Friendship Pairs (match points) event played in 2 sessions of 24 boards. 68 pairs, including many local pairs participated in the event. The Sri Lankan pair of Ashanta DE MEL – H H J KEERTHISENA with a massive score of 70.3% were the leaders at the end of the 1st session. Cricket fans should be really happy to know that Ashanta De Mel is the same man, who spearheaded the Sri Lankan fast bowling attack in the 70-80s.

However, at the end of the event, it was the local duo of Vinay Desai & Sapan Desai who finally won the 2-session Friendship Pairs event. They scored 67.9% in 1st session and 57.3 in the 2nd session to score a well deserving win. The 2nd position with a score of 61.7% was taken by Keyzad Anklesaria, another Ahmedabad player playing with J.M. Shah. Mrs. Kiran Nadar – B. Satyanarayana were 3rd with 61.2% score.
