Japanese and Czech players after they made it to the top of the hill
Yesterday was a sensational day. How often has it happened
that two knock-out matches out of a total of 6 in a day were
decided by 1 IMP? Still, this is what happened here. Firstly,
Greecoura had to surrender to USA Blue by the smallest of
(regular) margins in the quarterfinals. Late in the day, only by
about 20.30, it turned out that the same fate had struck
Netherlands Red who lost to Japan Czech by the same margin.
So itís Italy Red v. Japan Czech today over 48 boards.
Good luck and all the best to both teams and letís hope itís
at least not going into that nail-biting extra-time.
