Join Bridge Winners
Why are there round robins in the World Team Championships?

Desparate last-gasp attempts to reach the final eight on the last day may skew the results. It depends on the pairings. Potentially a team may be robbed of a spot in the final. Some pairs are shooting on every board. This is ugly bridge. It amounts to dumping without collusion. From the beginning the way to go is to have knockouts (or double knockouts). (Sorry if this ground has been covered before.)
