USA II, comprising Rose Meltzer, Kyle Larsen, Chip Martel, Lew Stansby, Alan Sontag and Peter Weichsel won the Bermuda Bowl today, defeating Norway's Terje Aa, Boye Brogeland, Glenn Grøtheim, Geir Helgemo, Tor Helness and Erik Sælensminde.

Norway made a good start in the first of today's sessions and built up a useful lead. However USA II came back and at the end of the first sixteen boards Norway's lead was only 2 IMPs. In the final session the Americans had the better of some heavy exchanges and finally won by 21 IMPs. Martel, Stansby, Sontag and Weichsel have all won before, but it is a first for Larsen. The same is true for the amazing, history making Rose Meltzer, the first woman to win a Bermuda Bowl - and on her birthday. What a present!
