IMP scoring was used in the match. The IMP table in 1962 was slightly different from that used today. We have adjusted the carry over score for each session to provide the 1962 scores.
For Italy, both D'Alelio-Chiaradia and Forquet-Garozzo used Neapolitan Club while Avarelli-Belladonna used Roman Club.
For North America Mathe-von Der Porten used Standard American and Murray-Coon used Colonial Acol.
The Nail-Key system is unnamed but they used 1NT(16-17) with 2C response as non-forcing stayman and 2NT as a slam try; 2NT(21-22) with 3C as forcing stayman and 3D.
Interactive (pf) files. Vugraph aficionados will note that we are again offering this feature: the so-called "pf files" allow the user to depart at any time from the line of play followed at the table, to play out the hand all by himself and explore alternative lines of play. However, once you have departed from the original line, you cannot reliably revert to it unless you go back to Trick 1. It should be noted that following the normal play is slower with these files as four mouse clicks are needed for each trick.
