Alarms and Discussions (revisited)

Time out for bridge: WBF President Jose Damiani, top right, plays
in the Senior Teams on Friday with Jean-Paul Meyer. Their opponents are the Americans Don Stack, left, and Tom Kniest.

The Bridge+ team from France would not have been fancied by the bookies going into their match with the star-studded George Jacobs team on Friday in the Rosenblum Knockout, but it is the Frenchmen playing on today while the bigger names are on the sidelines.

The six-man team Eduoard Beauvillain, Yves Jeanneteau, Jeremie Tignel, Jean-Gilles Herve, Bogdan Marina and Gilles Queran grabbed a narrow lead in the third set of the match and held on for the win in a tight fourth quarter, winning 122-113.

Also on the sidelines today are the Angelini team, anchored by four members of the reigning Bermuda Bowl champions from Italy. Their loss to the Americans led by Richard Schwartz was not as surprising as the final margin 124-94, aided by a 61-14 third quarter posted by the Schwartz team.

The Rosenblum continues today with the round of 32. The McConnell Knockout, after a day off on Friday, resumes today with the round of 16.
