Thibo Sprinkhuizen (NTH) couldn’t stop before slam when he heard his partner had a heart honor.
But the K and J were in bad position for him, although not for the defense, one down cost him 11 IMPs when England chose to play only a heart game at the other room.
Australia-Poland match: In this board Australia recuperated 10 IMPs when they made a diamond game while Poland arrived to the diamond slam and was one down.
Poland arrived to the diamond game in this hand. Declarer only lost the trump ace and the trump king. Australia chose to play only a diamond partscore making 11 tricks that cost them 6 IMPs.
In the other match England and Netherlands were down when they chose to play NT games.
Patryk Patreuha (POL) opened with 1, and his partner Jakub Patreuha (POL) jumped to 3 (hearts + spade support), West chose spades at the three level, after two pass Smith (AUS) reopen with 3NT. Nobody double, something really important when you go four down as Smith did.
At the other table N/S played 5two down…and three more IMPs for Poland.
Finally Poland and England advanced to the next stage.
