Day 5 The ups and downs

Today we started by winning our first match against USA 2 which lifted our spirits.We were hungry for a big win against India .However although we won it was a small win and disappointing .

We finished off our last match today with a big win against Egypt so we are back in the hunt for a qualifying position.

The day is filled with all kinds of emotions .Hope ,excitement, anxiety are just a few.

Two more days of the round robin.We actually finish off our last match against USA ! which is Gavin’s team .That should not have happened but it was the luck of the draw.

Gavin ‘s team is in 2nd right now and moving right along.

Tomorrow is an important day as they all are.We are playing some teams that are in contention. 

Bridge after two days

We got a great start having a good win against Poland.We had a good 1st day. Our second day we ran into a few bumps in the road. Actually we have been on the unlucky side of the slams. When we need a finesse to work it doesn’t .On the other hand we had opponents find their 4 /3 fits twice at the 6 level in the only contracts that make.

Day 3 was by far our toughest day.After beating The Netherlands in our 1st match we were on a high only to be brought down to earth by being killed by Italy and China.

Today Day 4, we had a  win against Monaco which was good and we went on to win nicely against New Zealand.However we lost to Indonesia in our last match.

Having three days left we are going to have to bare down and play well .We certainly have our work cut out for us .We play USA 2 in our 1st match tomorrow,India in our 2nd match and we finish off with Egypt.
