Posted January 9, 2018, by Jason Smith (flensburg [dot] bridgehunter [dot] av [at] googlemail [dot] com)

Lo and behold, here are the official results of this year's Ammann Awards. Records broken and the highest participation rate on record to date. Congrats to the top six finishers in each of the categories. Also to Nels Raynor of BACH Steel for winning Lifetime Legacy. An interview with him to follow. Some of the winners are about to receive press releases for the newspapers. While the Author's Choice Awards will be posted soon, all I can say is congrats to all the winners and many thanks to those who contributed and supported this year's awards. Here are the details:

Posted January 4, 2018, by Jason Smith (flensburg [dot] bridgehunter [dot] av [at] googlemail [dot] com)

Don't forget: You have until January 7th at 11:59pm Chicago time to vote for your favorite bridge in this year's Ammann Awards. Unlike the awards in the past, this voting process has seen the highest number of votes on record. Furthermore in all of the competition, we have seen at least six lead changes. Just because one candidate is in the lead doesn't mean it will stay that way. In other words, between now and then, your bridge and/or pontist has a chance to win. So go out there and vote. The information on the candidate with a link to the ballot can be found here. https://flensburgerfiles.wordpress.com/2017/12/19/2017-amman...
