At the end of the first session: BERG Erik y SIMONSSEN Steffen won the first session of the Final Open A but Gawel and Jagniewski continue as the leaders. Frey‐Hugon won the first session of the Ladies Final A and are in the pole position.
Open and Ladies Final A
Before the First Session: with 44 boards to play in Open series and 42 in Ladies event, a fierce struggle is expected. It is not only a question of money but supremacy. With five Polish pairs qualified in Open and one of their two pairs in Ladies, indeed this Country did very well in the first part. Gawel and Jagniewski will have a commanding position for the Final when they will enjoy a big carry over a first step toward victory. They were bought for a mere 18,000 Euros, if they win this is the exact sum the players will receive as a prize but their buyer will enjoy a big 10 to 1 prize and get an important consolation prize if they drop a few places.
October 24 15:00: The Qual Finished
We now know the 12 pairs that will play the Open final and the 8 pairs that will play the ladies Final, tomorrow :
October 24: The 16 Ladies pairs will play one another 3 times, 90 boards during two days. 8 pairs will qualify for a 42‐board final played on Friday, October 25. For the 60 Open pairs, it’s a different story. Having played 50 boards on Wednesday and having another 50 more to play today Thursday, they will try to be ranked in the first 12 by the end of Day 2 in order to access the A Final. The last 48 will fight in the B final.
The same boards are played at the same time at every one of the 30 tables. Each score is compared 29 times in term of IMP, so if you are the only one to go down in a part score you can lose as much as 174 IMP: expensive!.
On the other hand, if you are the one who brings a small Slam home you collect more than 460 IMP over the field. Enough points to stay optimistic for a while. So you can examine the standings but do not conclude on the outcome too quickly!. Anyhow, the leaders are: for the Open, the Polish Gawel‐Jagniewski for the Ladies, the French Frey‐Hugon.
Monaco TV channel pays visit every day to the Cavendish. They were surprised to note Ladies players among men.
