Bali 13: The final beckons

England had a good day yesterday and built up a useful but not decisive lead to take into the second half of the semi final. The winners play off for the gold medal over 96 boards and the losers have an 80 board play off for a bronze medal. England played in this in Veldhoven in 2011 and are very keen not to have to do it again.

At all world championships people can and do watch on BBO although Our Game also is broadcasting to China. Today's bulletin tells of an offer made by Our Game, a Chinese Internet Company to pay for exclusive rights to broadcast in future. No decision has yet been made by the WBF but the many keen BBO viewers will be looking on with some concern with the knowledge that BBO have provided an excellent free service for more than a decade.
