Christian Lahrmann, Søren Bune, Andreas Plejdrup, Emil Buus Thomsen & NPC Claus Lund
Aviv Zietak, Nir Khutorsky, Amir Ezion, Lior Urman, Gal Matatyahou, Yontan Sliwowicz & NPC Ram Blass
Third and last Set:
Denmark obliged Israel to choose between a double or the 5th level. Israel chose to play 5and couldn’t make it. At the other table, Israel let Denmark play spade at the fourth level and lost 12 IMPs.
Now the match was Israel 67 – Denmark 62
Aviv Zietak (ISR) opened his hand showing a weak major and Andreas Plejdrup (DEN) jumped to game in spades. Easy make and new leader, Israel only played 2 in this board. Now the match was Denmark 69- Israel 67.
And manage to recuperate the leadership next board when they chose to play a spade partscore while Denmark played a heart game two down. Board 36 gave 8 IMPs to Israel…and an exciting ending was coming, with only 6 boards to play.
Now the standings were:
Israel 76 – Denmark 69
Board 38 helped Denmark to recuperate 4 IMPS, they make 4in one room and were three down playing 2in the other. Now they were only 3 IMPs away.
In the last board Denmark played a heart game with no future against a partscore done in the other table, but a bad return from an Israel player in one of the tricks, let Denmark won the contract and the championship.
