Again the first board of the match was adverse for Netherlands…

Board 15

Thibo Sprinkhuizen (NTH) couldn’t stop before slam when he heard his partner had a heart honor.

But the Diamond SuitK and spade suitJ 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.

Netherlands recuperated 10 IMPs in boards 16 and 17. 

Board 18

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.

Board 24 was a push in the England-Netherlands match, both tables played 4spade suitone down by E/W. A totally different story happened in the Poland-Australia match.

Board 24

Patryk Patreuha (POL) opened with 1spade suit, and his partner Jakub Patreuha (POL) jumped to 3heart suit (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 5Diamond Suittwo down…and three more IMPs for Poland.

Finally Poland and England advanced to the next stage.
