7th WUC Bridge – Day 3 of Competitions



OPATIJA - The third day of competition at the 7th WUC Bridge kicked off with a match between two of the teams appearing on the provisory podium, France 1 and Japan. It turned out to be a one-way match won by Combescure, Kilani, Laloubeyre and Lebatteux against the Nippon team Honda, Ishibashi, Nagasuka, Seshimoto, Sugimoto and Yasui on the cruel score of 20-0. After the victory of Poland 1 over Turkey (16-4) and Poland 2 over Slovenia (18-2), the top teams are now Czech Republic 2 followed by France 1, Poland 1, Poland 2 and Japan, all within 20 points.


The first session of the afternoon offered the top teams a chance to confirm their status, and Czech Republic 2, Poland 1 and 2 did not miss their chance, especially with France 1 having a bye and Japan losing their second match of the day to Germany 1. At the end of this 8th round, Czech Republic 2 was still on the lead, Kopecky, Kralik, Vojtik and Zylka having a 12 points advantage to France 1, 14 to Poland 1 and 20 on Poland 2. Japan after those two terrible matches fell to the 8th place before the last match of the day.


Finally, the last round saw the leaders have a bye and the two Polish teams climb on the podium after the victory of Poland 1 over Austria (11-9) and of Poland 2 over Japan (18-2) concluding the terrible day for Japan. France 1 lost its spot on the podium after being defeated by a surprising China 2 team upsetting all odds to win 14.6.

Today, Tuesday 4 November, only two rounds are on the programme and they will be followed by a cultural programme and a gala dinner.
