I'm sure most Bridge Winners readers have heard about the ugly situation that occurred before the start of the fifth segment of theSPAIN-USA match. There is a lot to say about that, but this is neither the time nor place.

The Open results:

NEW ZEALAND defeatedFRANCE167-150.

SPAIN defeatedUSA 183-149 (including 10 IMPs awarded to USA for Spain's refusal to heed director's orders to play).

CANADA defeatedITALY 214-173.

THE NETHERLANDS defeatedRUSSIA 236-189.

ENGLAND defeatedISRAEL 182-137.

AUSTRIA,JAPAN, andSWITZERLAND withdrew toMONACO,SWEDEN,andPOLAND, respectively.

Good luck to the surviving US teams, especially the Mixed Team, which overcame a fourth-quarter deficit to beatJAPAN by 1 IMP.
