2012 European Teams Championship

 

 The 51st edition of the European Bridge Team Championships is being held in Citywest Hotel, Dublin, Ireland, from 12 to 23 June 2012. As usual, the Championships comprise three series for OpenWomen and Senior national teams.

 

 The Open Category will play two round robins. In the first stage of the Championship, the panel is divided into two groups. Each of these groups play a round robin. The Championship Final Ranking will emerge from the results of the second RR played by the first 9 best positioned countries in the previous RR's (the matches played in qualifying and played in the final).

 

 In the second match of the first day, Italy played against Hungary and this is what happened in Board 11.
