Two swings to a knockout
Charles Goren
September 05, 1966
Two sensational slam hands provided the big "swings" at Denver in the battle for the Spingold Trophy, emblematic of the Masters Knockout Team title won by Ira Rubin's group. The first occurred in the semifinal between teams captained by Edith Kemp and George Rap�e. Edith had benched herself with a headache and a 17-IMP lead after having played a magnificent third quarter with Cliff Russell that was watched by some 500 kibitzers via the giant Bridge-O-Rama. In the final quarter, however, Rap�e's bombers rallied to win by 22.
