  • Description

    FILM STAR OMAR SHARIF IS LEADING A TEAM IN A BRIDGE MATCH WHICH HAS BEEN CALLED THE "MOST EXPENSIVE IN THE WORLD". PLAYING WITH FRENCHMAN, CLAUD DELMOULY, SHARIF IS HATCHED AGAINST TWO ENGLISH BRIDGE INTERNATIONAL PLAYERS, JONATHAN CANSINO AND JERENY FLINT IN EIGHTY RUBBER SERIES SPARED OVER FIVE DAYS. THE STAKES ARE ONE POUND STERLING A POINT....BUT WITH SIDE BETS AROUND THE ONE THOUSAND POUND MARK.

    THE SERIES WON'T BE AN ENTIRE LOSS TO THE LOSERS. THE GAMES ARE BEING VIDEOTAPED AND ITS HOPED THEY CAN BE SPLIT UP INTO A THIRTEEN WEEK TELEVISION SERIES WHICH WILL BE SOLD TO NETWORKS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM AND AMERICA.

    SHARIF HAS SQUEEZED THE MUCH PUBLICISED SERIES BETWEEN A FILM AND PERSONAL APPEARANCES IN THE UNITED STATES. AT THE OUTSET ORGANISERS SAID AS MUCH AS 100,000 POUNDS COULD CHANGE HANDS...BUT SO FAR FORTUNES HAVE BEEN WON OR LOST.

    LUCK HAS BEEN UP AND DOWN LIKE THE BIDDING. THE LARGEST SIDE BET LAID SO FAR HAS BEEN ONE THOUSAND POUNDS WHICH WAS WON BY THE ENGLISH PAIR.

    LONDON BOOKMAKERS HAVE JUMPED ON THE BRIDGE BANDWAGON AND HAVE LAID ODDS OF 6 TO 4 ON THE SHARIF TEAM AND EVEN MONEY ON ITS OPPONENTS.
