This is the hand with the biggest swing of the match:

 Board 11 Dealer South None Vul

 Radev opened with a weak 2 bid that was the final contract. Declarer was three down: -150. The lead was the J, declarer won the trick in his hand with the  K to continue with a little heart, Duboin won with his 8 and played the J, Radev won in dummy with the Q, and continued with a little spade to his K, Sementa covered with the A and immediately played the K. Radev covered with dummy’s ace, but Duboin ruffed and played his 4. Now South ruffed to continue with a club to the queen and A. Duboin ruffed with his 5, Radev over-ruffed with his J, Sementa won the trick with the Q and continued with the 10. Duboin played his A, and got the 2 over the table, ruffed with the K…last trick for declarer…

 In the other room the bidding was very different. Madala passed and West opened the bidding with a 1 call. Bocchi over-declared 2 and Trendafilov declare the spade game. Madala doubled and Bocchi informed him about his two minors hand. Madala preferred diamonds.

Lead: A

Skorchev lead the spade ace, and when he saw Madala’s king continued with his Q… Madala ruffed to continue with a diamond to the A, now was declarer who saw the J. Agustin played a club to the K… continued with a diamond… and claimed…
