AHMIBAH Having won both the Bronze and the Silver Cups at Sotogrande, Bahar Jefri’s team also took the Gold Cup home in one of the tournament’s most exciting matches against Ayala, last year’s Gold Cup winners, yesterday at Los Pinos.  In front of a milling crowd of several hundreds, Patron Prince Bahar, Valerio Zubiaurre, Iñaki Laprida and Pablo MacDonough worked together consistently as a team, though Pablito well deserved the Best Tournament Player award he received at the prize-giving ceremony afterwards.
