September 20,  2019 This is how the daily Bulletin described the situation: Competitors in the four main teams events have now finished 18 of 23 rounds of the qualifying round robin and can take a breath knowing only five rounds remain — three today and two on Sunday. In the Bermuda Bowl, USA 1 is in a comfortable position at the top of the bracket with 277.76 victory points. Sweden is in second place with 244.90. The Netherlands are third with 233.43. In the eighth and last qualifying spot is England with 217.36. In ninth and in danger of missing the cut is Israel. In the Venice Cup, China is leading with 241.17 VPs. Poland is close behind at 236.15. Neither is in danger of missing a qualifying spot at this point. USA 1 is in eighth. Two strong teams — Sweden and USA 2 — are just outside the top eight. India, in first place, looks good as a qualifier in the d’Orsi Seniors Trophy, as do Denmark and Chinese Taipei, second and third, respectively. Netherlands, in 9th place, is in danger of missing out on the quarter-finals. In the Mixed Teams, England leads the pack with 249.53 VPs, followed in second by USA 2 with 244.83. In the eighth and final qualifying spot are Sweden with 211.85, but USA 1, in ninth, is within shouting distance with 207.71 VPs. First 8 positions:

Norberto Bocchi’s Opinion

World Cup China: Indonesia 7 poor points, Norway 11 and okay, and almost full with Singapore and it’s fine (even the weak teams sometimes give surprises, see last round today), tomorrow is the highlight because we have Poland and Holland, if we go out from these 2 free encounters we can think positive as Jovanotti says :)). We are 6 teams in the fight and only 1 will come from the 8 I believe, China, England, us, Israel and Poland and Norway, what to say? Our life and their death ……..
