Winners on the day were Ian and Cynthia Clayton edging Barry Jones and Jenny Millington. Third-placed Herman Yuan played with Jeffrey Chang who was subbing for Yuzhong Chen who was off chasing glory at the North Island Pairs in Wellington (came 17th, apparently). With a 30 point lead in the competition Yuzhong could feel fairly comfortable with being elsewhere. And so it came to pass. Herman and Yuzhong victorious followed at a distance by WAPs co-ordinator Anna Kalma playing with Noel Grigg followed by wine and pizza for all at the end of the WAPs for 2019.
