Party vs. duplicate bridge

In order to win at party bridge each person’s score stands alone and is dependent on the luck of the deal.
Every hand is dealt at the table and played one time at that table and that table only.
There are no partnerships. A great hand gets you a great score.
Your individual scores from each table are added at the end of the game and the person with the highest score wins.
In duplicate bridge each hand is played by numerous partners over and over again at multiple tables.
High score still determines the winner but scores are a comparison of how well you and your partner played each hand against the field of players.
The luck of the deal is less of a factor. Skill, not luck, is most important in the win.
Our Evergreen scores from Nov. 1 were close. Dick Brisbin and Pat Featherston tied with Lucy Brown and Joe O’Brien for first and second.
