 1st Playing Day, source: Event Bulletins

Desired and To Be Desired
The 4 matches played on tournament day 1 gave us little surprise to observe that the mighty MONACO team was leading the field with an average of 19.5VPs, and they accumulated 78 VPs in total. We would say that is quite a healthy score, but far from comforting lead. Because just 1VP behind, team POLAND was breathing down their neck. USA and Sunchime Fund also had strong games to gain 71 and 70 VPs respectively. At the bottom of cross-table were two Chinese teams, Zhejiang Jingfan and Geely Automobile who had lost every match in all their hard fights, better luck to them at day 2 and we would bet heavily that no one will leave this tournament with an empty hand.

An invitational tournament where 12 teams participate in a Round Robin format…all against all. Among the invited teams we can mention the Monaco team:  Geir HELGEMO & Tor HELNESS y Fulvio FANTONI & Claudio NUNES, for USA: Brad MOSS & Joe GRUE y Curtis CHEEK & Ishmael DELMONTE,  and the last world champions from Netherlands: Bas DRIJVER & Louk VERHEES JR y Ricco van PROOIJEN & Sjoert BRINK..etc…
