Yeh logoYeh Bros Team Cup – Yokohama City (Japan) 21-26 April, 2013. The first finalist was elected: in the “big match” between the favourite teams, Italy beat Denmark 97-47 in thirty-two hands. The players were:  M. T. Lavazza, Ferraro, Bocchi, Madala, Duboin, Sementa in Italy team;  Denmark: M. and D. Bilde, Welland, S. Auken. Thus it was the battle between the strongest Italian team (Lavazza) against what at this moment it’s right to say the stronger in the world, Denmark, who a month ago won the Vanderbilt outscoring the cream of international champions.

Lavazza won both the sixteen board stanzas (53-28 and 44-19); a good synthesis of the match is the one given by Kieran Dyke, who commented in BBO: “Denmark haven’t always played with the best of luck, but Italy’s error rate was particularly low”.

Denmark still has the chance to get the final, but she has now to cross the purgatory of the teams spotted by one defeat, lasting at the end of the walk – they or whoever will be – still with one defeat or the best one in the two-way knock-out group. But, anyway, starting the final with a heavy -6,5 carry-over.

These are the three teams who will fight to be the second finalist:

Denmark (beaten by Lavazza), Yeh Bros I (who beat China Blue and Russia), and Netherland (who beat Sweden and USA Kranyak).
