9.00 pm: The appointment is at the next world championship challenges of Italy of curling in Las Vegas. Thanks for joining us and good evening
20.59: At 11pm the match against Denmark in which the Italian team will be called to immediately make up for it to at least get back in the running for the play-offs. This defeat against the Netherlands, which had not yet won, really did not take place and above all in this daring way
20.57: The blue defeat is unjustifiable and very heavy. Italy led 6-1 after three ends, 9-6 after eight ends and had their hand at 9-9 at the last end. A leg-cutting setback that greatly complicates the Azzurri from the race to the play-offs with a mountain of regrets
8.55pm: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!! THE RETORNAZ ERROR! Italy incredibly loses 9-11 against Holland who had the merit of believing in it until the end. The blues with this defeat probably say goodbye to the play-off dream in an incredible way as they won 6-1
20.54: We need a magic of Retornaz. There are three Dutch stones at the point when the last pitch is missing
20.51: Situation unchanged when there are five shots to go
8.49pm: A blue stone, surrounded by Dutch stones, at the point when there are 7 shots left at the end of the last end
20.46: Two blue stones in point after the first 4 pitches of the last end
8.41 pm: There will be suffering until the end! Another serious mistake by Retornaz who fails to reject the Dutch stone at the third to last shot and the dreaded Dutch three points arrive. He goes to the tenth end in a tie, 9-9 but with the hand for the blues who played at alternating current, pulling the plug once ahead 6-1 …
20.35: Double blue stone when there are three shots left at the end of the end. Bravo Retornaz to free the house
20.30: A blue stone in point after nine pitches of the ninth end
20.26: Two blue stones in point after the first 5 pitches of the ninth end
20.23: Goesgens had been very good in the penultimate shot to prevent the easy double point for the blues, Retornaz even better in closing to reject the blue stone rightly that goes to conquer the double point for Italy: 9-6 after eight ends, hand back to the Dutch
20.16: Always two blue stones at the point when the last four pitches of the eighth end are missing. Retornaz enters the scene
20.11: There are two stones in point after eight pitches in the eighth end
20.06: Azzurri at the point after 4 shots of the fourth end
20.01: Holland, back to the wall, scores the point and shortens the distance without being able to hook the blues who go to the eighth end with the hand available and will try to stretch: 7-6
19.58: After 13 pitches there is still a blue stone in point
19.52: A blue stone in point after 10 pitches of the seventh end but there are many Dutch stones in the house. Dangerous situation
7.49pm: Aggressive Azzurri. Three Italian stones in the house after 5 pitches
7.44pm: Retornaz is forced to take only one point from the presence of two Dutch stones in the house on the penultimate pitch. Italy comes back 7-5 after six ends and now they will have to defend themselves
19.38: Another Dutch stone in point after 12 pitches. Do we go towards the canceled hand?
19.34: A Dutch stone in point after 5 pitches of the sixth end
19.26: Nooooooooooooo !!! Error by Retornaz who misses the rejection and costs a hand stolen by three points from the Azzurri. The game reopens with the Dutch leading 6-5
19.19: We go to the canceled hand
7.15pm: Dutch Stone on point after six pitches of the fifth end
19.10: Holland avoids further damage and, with three blue stones in the house, goes to take the point in the fourth end, shortens the distance on 6-2 but hands over to the Azzurri who will try to stretch further
19.05: Two more blue stones in point after 11 pitches of the fourth end
19.01: Two blue stones in point after 6 pitches of the fourth end
18.56: FIVE !!! Retornaz of rightness also puts the fifth blue stone in the house and a super score arrives for the blue team which is now 6-1 ahead after three ends and will be able to manage an important advantage
18.54: The Dutch mistake with the stone that collides with the Italian low guard. Retornaz can even make five!
18.52: Four blue stones at the point when the last two pitches are missing. Good haul may come for Retornaz and associates
18.49: Three blue stones in point (and only one Dutchman in the house) after the tenth pitch of the third end
18.41: Dutchmen at the point after 5 shots of the fifth end
18.38: Holland forced to take the point risks big in the rejection but manages to win the point and equalize the score: 1-1 and hand for Italy
18.35: Be careful because there was a mistake by the Dutch and you could go towards the stolen hand or a Holland point. A blue stone at the point when the last two pitches are missing
18.31: We could go towards the canceled hand
18.30: Double failure by the Dutch who place the only stone in the house on the tenth pitch
18.28: After 7 shots of the second end Italy to point and central guard for the blues
18.22: Holland manages to sweep away only two of the three stones of the blues before the last shot. Italy steals the hand in the opening and goes 1-0
18.14: After 10 shots the Italians are at the point with two stones, blues outside the house
18.09: Blue stone in point after the first 5 pitches of the opening end
18.03: Opening hand for the Dutch
18.00: Italy fielded the typical formation with Simone Gonin, Sebastiano Arman, Amos Mosaner and Joel Retornaz and with Mattia Giovanella reserve, while the Dutch respond with Glasbergen, Hoekman, Van Dorp and Goesgens and with Van den Hurk reserve.
17.56: The Dutch are on the hunt for their first World Cup victory as they have suffered 4 defeats against Sweden, Germany, Canada and Switzerland in the first four races
17.52: On the Italian night the blue team was clearly defeated 10-4 by Canada. A setback that increases the importance of today’s double challenge, now with the Netherlands and late in the evening with Denmark
