Great Britain was behind 126 -115 Imps and gained 5 imps but lost the match 126 - 120 . If Konstam and Gray had managed to stop in four spades, their +620, in combination with Reese and Schapiro's +300, would have been a swing of 14 Imps so Great Britain would have advanced to the final by a score of 129-126!
The Italians went on to defeat the US by 46 Imps in the final.
