Raising the IQ bar at Stardeck

Raising the IQ bar at Stardeck

By Staff Writer - April 6, 2017

quiz 5A highly competitive 22nd edition of MonacoUSA’s Quiz Night took place Wednesday night at Stars’n’Bars.

MonacoUSA Association President Mike Powers opened the not-to-be-missed event thanking sponsors, including Boisson France, Heineken and ATP, and offered Prince Albert’s regrets for his absence, before adding, “although as three-time reigning champion, the Prince is giving others a chance to win.”

In a true test of wits, he also reminded participants that unlike last year, the use of mobile phones would not be permitted.

Quizmasters Peter Mackley and Philippe Decreus once again tested the crowd’s knowledge, in English and French, on various subjects such as general trivia (According to Google, which is the second most internationally recognised word after “okay”?), pop culture (Which celebrity made $170 million last year?), politics (Who said “The euro is a knife in the ribs of the French”?), mathematics (What number divided by zero is zero?) and music – which, in true quiz night fashion, the moderators had prize seekers on their feet crooning for a chance to win.

But Stardeck really lit up when the extremely talented duo Paul Spicer and Matt Firth brought the room to their feet with a preview of the next MonacoUSA event, La La Monacoland Dinner Cabaret on May 16.

There were about 70 participants at Quiz Night, and ATP played a huge presence with a table of sixteen, counting players Sergei Bubka, Mischa Zverev, Alexander Zverev and Grigor Dimitrov. The prize for the best team name went to “I thought this was speed dating”.

As ever, it was a convivial evening, orchestrated flawlessly by MonacoUSA’s Annette Anderson.
