The loss of a four in the second end was the killer blow.

But Ireland are ranked third in the group along with the Czech Republic and Japan so we now wait to see which of these three teams go forward to the play-offs. More info when we know how this will be decided.

Round Robin Games (3 Groups)
At the end of the round robin series there will be a ranking for 1st, 2nd and 3rd position in each group. The 1st and 2nd ranked teams qualify directly for the 1/4 finals, as well as the 3rd ranked team with the best DSC result. The other two 3rd ranked teams play a qualification game and the winner plays in the quarter-finals.

Playoff match-up for the quarter-finals will be:
(Game 1) 1st best DSC of the 1st ranked teams v to be determined* from the 4 other qualified teams

(Game 2) 2nd best DSC of the 1st ranked teams v to be determined* from the 4 other qualified teams

(Game 3) 3rd best DSC of the 1st ranked teams v to be determined* from the 4 other qualified teams

(Game 4) 1st best DSC of the 2nd ranked teams v to be determined* from the 4 other qualified teams.

Semi-finals: winners of the 1/4 finals; opponents to be determined*

* to be determined – opponents will be selected on the basis of not having teams from the same group compete against each other. If necessary, the opponents will be determined by a “draw from the hat” (random selection) at the post round robin team meetings.
