This year's Mens Pairs event has been thrown wide open following results in the Easter-interrupted championship.
With the second round now completed and one of the round 3 games also played, we have lost our two favourites and both of last year's finalists: Champions Wilson Cheng & Fred Alexander and Runners-Up Rod Silber & Chris Carey. Cheng/Alexander lost by a single shot (21-20) to Peter Tonoli & Joe Shofer in the top half of the draw and Peter Shlager & Jimmy Barclay opened up the bottom half with a 21-16 win over the Carey Brothers (n.b. Richard Carey was substituting for a sick Rod Silber).
