"That´s what champions look like"

"Congratulations on the title, you fly. But you set new standards in Skat: First place in singles after the main round AND final and 19 TP." (Correction: Ingolf Münch also managed both at the Euro 2019) With these words I congratulated Deni on his World Cup success shortly before the start of the gala evening. "But the whole thing was tighter than it looks," he replied and put the following card on the table:

Patient you must be, little Padawan. From the beginning, the story has to be told.

After the 3rd round, Erwin and Deni are on 11 table points (TP) and meet in the 4th. Erwin leads at half-time clearly ahead of Deni and is overtaken by him in the course of the list. Because of Erwin's 2 TP in this 4th series, Deni needs "only" 3 TP in the last round in order not to be overtaken by Erwin at 4 TP. At 17 TP of both, Erwin would have had more game points.

In round 5 at halftime Deni is on 2 TP with a three-digit deficit on 3 and 4 TP as he holds in HH the above mentioned (fate) cards. Knowing about his deficit, he announces after double bidding 50 and a Hearts Hand Schneider. Peter Baake in VH holds 4 counter-trumps.

Now it's your turn. How will the card have been if Deni wins his game?

This game is followed by a Grand Hand and other material that gives him 4 TP. Consequence:

Individual World Champion 2022 - Deni Lazicic!!!

Congratulations on behalf of the whole Skat community!

Extremely well written blog Joerg. I especially enjoyed your kind words on Canada and Canadians. This was my first World Championship but it will definitely not be my last. See you in Poland
