Recently, the World Bridge Federation announced the selection of Sanya as a candidate city to host the 2014 World Bridge Series Championships and will arrange a group head for Sanya to investigate the possibility of hosting the event.
The selection marks the start of the world’s greatest card game’s introduction to another country, after it has previously only been held in Europe and the USA.
