Check back to this page throughout the day for regular updates, the latest of which will appear at the top of the page.

Home field advantage

The field of teams and players have now played 75% of the hands and are off to a lunch break. They will now get a chance to go through the re-player when they come back and adjust play if they believe it necessary. Australia has had quite a negative outcome of the most recent session and China has brought themselves in a very favourable position for the Championship. In the middle of the pack a fierce fight is about to unfold to secure a spot in the Nations Cup Final.
