An unofficial tally indicates that Eric Greco is the ACBL’s 2018 Player of the Year.
Greco was trailing Bobby Levin going into the final day of the Reisinger BAM by about 70 points. While Levin’s team failed to qualify for the third day of the grueling contest, Greco’s team – captained by Martin Fleisher – saw action. The Fleisher team needed to finish no worse than fourth for Greco to pass Levin; Fleisher finished exactly fourth – .09 ahead of the fifth-place contenders.
Player of the Year is based on platinum masterpoint total only. Platinum points are awarded only in national level events, usually contested by the best in the world.
