The play-off matches for third place in the two major competitions saw Poland and USA II secure their place on the podium. Poland gained a small measure of revenge for their defeat in Maastricht by outscoring Italy 86-74.3 while USA II and Austria traded no less than 275 IMPs over the same 48 deals, the final score being 165-110.5.

Norway have stormed clear of USA II in the Bermuda Bowl. They have won all three sets to build up a commanding lead. There is plenty of time for their opponents to turn the match around, but they need a good start today.

In the all-European Venice Cup Final, the first not to involve an American team, France took full advantage of some early German errors to build up a commanding lead. However, their opponents won the last set and the match is far from over.

Five countries are represented in the semi-finals of the Transnational Teams, the French team Bureau, Israel's Grinberg, the American/Brazilian combination Brachman and Poland's Kowalski.
