Bermuda Bowl - England Open Team Part 6

Another good day for the Open Team here in Chennai. We started the day with a tough looking fixture against the legendary NICKELL team from the USA. They fielded their front four, but a cracking performance saw us record a 22 imp win. Special mention must go to our very own David Gold who twice outdeclared the famous Jeff Meckstroth to bring in two game swings. Match number two featured some spicy deals against the South Africans, and we consolidated in excellent fashion with a 47 imp win. Last of all, we faced the New Zealand team. A tight set of boards saw us win by 18 imps, although there is a ruling which *could* go in our favour pending. All of this put together saw an excellent moving day, leaving us in third place. Tomorrow we face the UAE, China who lie in second place overnight, and Japan. Two days of the Round Robin remain, so every imp counts even more so now. Tune in and wish us luck!

As an aside, two members of our team have recorded videos for the WBF, and they even (erroneously) invited the npc to do one - they can all be found here:
