Meanwhile, Canada is well into end 7 and long overdue to crack a mitt full of points in their CAN-EST game.

Barn burner is right! And we will never be able to watch it.

I imagine it's akin to a heavyweight boxing match..blow for blow and nobody is conceeding anything.



Hasselborg got stunned for a 5-piece mid-game. Musta infuriated Anna the Swedish Cyborg so much she came back with a 4 spot next end.

That said, RCF is doing to Sweden what Canada set out to do before the feisty Canucks imploded.

Maybe 10 years ago but there is no sleepwalking allowed anymore. The qualifier could have Fujisawa who has won grand slam events. Korea who won a silver at the Olympics. Germany and Denmark who have both beaten Canada at the worlds. The Czech team gets better every time out. Sure Canada would be favoured but it isn't a gimme.

With the HUGE win over Scotland last night the chances of having to deal with the last chance saloon bonspiel got a lot smaller. I'm still sticking to my original picks--Canada-Sweden final. Hopefully TV is back for last Canadian game which is vs China and could be decisive.


I'm not certain but I think the last Japanese national championship may have also determined their Olympic team. Fujisawa was undefeated in the round robin but was upset by Yoshimura in the final.

Both Kim teams from Korea have medaled internationally so are legitimate threats.

It should be said that there's a 3rd team in Korea that is also a legitimate threat.

Here's the championship bracket for 2020 Korean Curling National Championship:
https://www.curlingzone.com/event.p...view=Playoffs#1

Kim Eun-jung won gold. Kim Min-ji won bronze.

Silver was Gim Un-chi, who is Korea's representative in Sochi 2014. She's been to 4 Worlds. 5 medals at PACC. 2 medals at Universiade.

Fun fact: someone told me that Gim = Kim, exact same character in Korean, just different romanization. So technically it's correct to say that there are 3 Kim teams in Korea? I'm not 100% sure.

Still think the predominant contenders for gold are Sweden & Switzerland but RCF/Kovaleva has put a major shiver into the field with her stellar hi-percentage play in Calgary. She's doing something I've rarely seen done - OK, Jennifer Jones did it at the Olympics when she ran the table but Alina Ko still has many games left to do same.

But the stunner was disposing of the last Olympic champion, Anna Hasselborg/Sweden like yesterday's garbage. Rather incredible, no?

Tirinzoni seems to have developed some major league strategical advantages over much of the field - whether thats due to great scouting or having Alina Patz as your 4th shooter, up for debate!

Einarson still clinging to hope she can run the table and assert herself as one of the major playoff threats. After a wobbly (to be kind) start she's back to par. Even Shannon Birchard, who's been shaky put in a brilliant percentage game this a.m.
Briane Meilleur may quietly be setting herself up as the events all-star lead.

The Czech Republic has been playing out of their minds this afternoon.
Trailing RCF by one, 10th end, with hammer.

RCF is no longer undefeated.
CZE layed a 3 on them to win it 7-5.

Wowza!

This is frustrating. I feel that we're missing all of the best matchups while the broadcast cameras sit idle.

Judging just from the curlit updates, I can't help but be envious of the dozen or so lucky ones on location that witnessed the last two draws.
