LAHORE, Mar 24 (APP) Sh Abdul Muqeet and Wajahat Suri won the pair event of the Balijee international Bridge Championship with excellence coupled with astute thinking here on Friday at Lahore Gymkhana club card room.

Certainly during the pairs event their consistency has taken them to this elevated level, the secret of their durability being focus and a perfect combination and an ability to fire their intelligence with all barrels charging.

with awesome moves by combinations like Maj Asad Maqbool & Ghalib Bandaisha, Javed Khalid and Saeed Akhter,and Mirza Shauq Hussain combining with the indomitable Indian star Sappan Desai,and other top pairs of Karachi like Tehseen Ghaeewala—Rahid ul Ghazi,Mubashir Puri Junaid and not to forget experts like Parvez Mirza Imran Abidi and Hasan Askari Khalid Mohiuddin. However , no matter how well they combined the spins from the table of the winners Sheikh A Muqeet and Wajahat Suri were always a crushing force for the opponents.
