Turkish Delight for the English in Opatija

A late surge (20 IMPs from last two boards) against Turkey helped the English ladies to move up the field in Opatija.  This was followed by a strong performance against the host nation and by the end of the third day, England had moved into a medal position.

For the first time in the event, we are closer to the leaders (Italy - 14 VPs ahead) than the 7th placed team (Spain - 15 VPs adrift) and with six teams qualifying for the Venice Cup (the World Championships)  in 2015, this is a reassuring state of affairs as we near the half-way point of the tournament.
