Captain's Diary, Day 8: R16 vs. Spain, Segments 5-6

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

The Open results:

NEW ZEALAND defeated FRANCE 167-150.

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

CANADA defeated ITALY 214-173.

THE NETHERLANDS defeated RUSSIA 236-189.

ENGLAND defeated ISRAEL 182-137.

AUSTRIAJAPAN, and SWITZERLAND withdrew to MONACOSWEDEN, and POLAND, respectively.

 

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