Second year in a row Branch 160 member has missed first place by one point

After a day-long competition Maniak placed second in the singles event, being edged out of first place by one point. It was the second year that Maniak missed top spot by the narrowest of margins.

“The winner was blessed when he won the first game from me by having a 24 hand to go out, but he lost the second game,” Maniak said.

To go along with Maniak’s second-place finish, B.C. took top spot in the doubles event. Maniak notes he is the only Legionnaire to compete in the Dominion Championship three times.
