We needed a 4-0 victory against this dwarfish backgammon nation, but failed in our mission. Sometimes even an 8+ PR difference is not enough to guarantee victory, as Johan S. experienced in a gruelling match against his sympathetic, but endearingly incompetent opponent.
Here are the PR’s of both teams :
Michel Lamote (PR 3,36) wins against Gilbert Licudi (PR 13,52)
Marc Van Damme (PR 4,63) wins against David Frier (PR 10,92)
Johan Segers (PR 6,73) loses to Steven Blake (15,32)
Walter Meuwis (PR 6,83) wins against Michael Pitaluga (PR 14,40)
We now need a 4-0 victory against Turkey in the last round. Unlikely, but not impossible…
