Barbados will be in the hunt for their ninth crown and Antigua and Barbuda will be eyeing their first when the 16th World’s Domino Championship climaxes today at the Sea Rock Dome, Maxwell Coast Road.

The Bajans are the defending champions of the overall title with Antigua and Barbuda having to settle for the runners-up spot in the last three tournaments.

Late last night, the mixed pairs as well as the three-hand finals were played.  

However, the contest from nine this morning will see the teams from Barbados, Antigua and Barbuda, Guyana, Anguilla and the United States looking to take the top spots in today’s five finals and clinch the crown. Today’s finals will be contested in the King and Queen, the men’s and women’s Four Hand competitions.

Yesterday, Antigua and Barbuda set the tone for an upset with King “Bulldozer” Manlight defeating the Bajan duo of Winnifred Harbin-Jones and Sterling Worrell in the finals of the Tony Kissoon Tournament. Manlight earned 12 points and $600 to Harbin-Jones’ five points and $300 and Worrell’s three points and $200.

Barbados will be counting on performances of the likes of Shurland Bovell, Adrian Hinds, Shelly-Ann Dawson, Suzette Hinds, Peggy Brewster, Rhonda Jemmott, Charmaine Carter and Hamilton Durant to ensure that the domino crown remains in Bajan hands. (KB)
