The Open team started badly against Poland, and fell 27 IMPs behind after seven boards. They have turned things round since then, however, including 'winning' the third session. They are now only 10.7 IMPs behind, with 48 boards to play.
The Women's team have more work to do in the second half, as France lead by 46 IMPs. The first set was relatively tight, but the last two went in France's favour, and England will be hoping for a fast start in the morning session.
All three sessions of both matches on Wedneday are on BBO. Good luck to both teams.
The NPC's have contributed numerous blogs over the last few days, and some of the Open Team have recorded video 'play problems'. The links are available below.
