Fantoni used the 3 to double,  (3 = 4-fit, 10-11) showing a good lead and the suit, these gave his partner the opportunity to sacrifice: 5. The italian chose to double instead of playing 5. Declarer was only one down = 200, this cost Italy 10 IMPs. Kit Woolsey who was commenting at the table wrote:  Anyway, not a victory for the artificial 3 call showing support.  In the next Board Monaco returned 10 IMPs.

Fantoni – Nunes didnt stop till the slam, Nunes chose diamonds.

Kit wrote:  Actually 6 turns out to be more treacherous on the lie of the cards.

Lead: 2

Fantoni played dummy’s A, unbloqued the club suit (A y K), a diamond to the A, pitched the heart looser in the Q. Now was diamonds time. Fantoni played a little diamond and when West played a little one he played the Q, when he saw East pitch a heart, he knew he was down.  I guess he knew that a spade contract was easier and that if the italians had play it…the hand was really expensive … must have been relieved when he found out that Bocchi-Madala had played a spade game the board gave 11 IMPs to Italy.

The board 13 was pass out in one of the tables. In the other Bocchi scored 2+3=150 and added 4 IMPs for Italy.
