7th WUC Bridge – Day 4 of Competitions


OPATIJA – The 4th day of competitions at the 7th WUC Bridge 2014 was a short one for the players with only two rounds planned. In the morning, the Czech leaders were surprisingly defeated 19-1 by France 2. After its victory over Slovenia 18-2, Poland 1 seized the opportunity to climb on the first step of the podium with a total of 142.06 ahead of the Czechs (139.94). Behind them the second Polish team with 134.4 points further to its victory over Germany 2 13-7. France 1 was sent out of the temporary podium further to its draw with Turkey 10-10.


In the afternoon Poland 1 confirmed its status of favorite with a large victory 19-1 over Germany 1 to reach the score of 160.69. The Czechs forgot their morning disappointment to take 16 points against Japan to stay in the race to the title ending the day with a 156.02 total ahead of France 1 coming back on the podium defeating Cetkovska, Janikova, Lapcikova and Ticha (CZE 1) 14-6. Poland 2 had a tough afternoon, losing the third place after a defeat to the surprising Italian team composed of Calmanovici, Percario, Rubino and Sau on the score of 14-6.


The evening was concluded with a gala diner where awards were distributed to authorities and a presentation of the 2016 EUSA Games - where bridge will be included for the first time – was given to the participants.

Today, Wednesday 5 November, three more rounds are planned to see the ranking evolve towards the end and the fight for gold will continue.
