It was your average Pub Quiz Night in Monaco, with a Prince on the winning team and two top-seeded tennis stars all testing their knowledge on geography, cinema and pop culture.

MonacoUSA hosted its annual brainteaser on Tuesday to a sold-out crowd at Stars’n’Bars with the highly-energetic quizmasters Peter Mackley and Philippe Decreus.

More than 100 guests competed, including tennis players Grigor Dimitrov and David Goffin on Team ATP and Sir Stelios on the Easy Team, as well as teams from the British Association, Outward Bound, the Harvard Club and Team Powers, led by the MonacoUSA President Mike Powers.

Team Sandel, with Monaco Life’s Publisher Eric Brundage and Susan Feaster, CEO of Ryder Cup France 2018 US Partners Club, finished the evening in second place.

The winning team’s captain was also the popular event’s longest-serving competitor during its 20-year history, HSH Prince Albert.

As Kate Powers best summed up: “Quiz night felt like a big reunion of old friends getting back together. It was such a fun and enthusiastic night.”
