Four teams are now tied at the top of the table - Russia, Scotland, Switzerland and USA - after Tuesday afternoon's fourth session of men's round-robin play.

Russia beat Denmark, who are still looking for their first win - by 8-3; Scotland had a 13-4 victory over Turkey - helped largely by a score of six in the second end; Switzerland handed Canada their second successive defeat, by 7-5; and USA beat Korea, also without a win so far, by 9-4.

In the fifth game of this session, Norway beat Sweden by 8-6 to record their second win, and they, Sweden, Canada and Turkey are all tied in fifth place, just one win behind the joint leaders, with Denmark and Korea anchored at the bottom.

They Said It:

Bruce Mouat (skip, Scotland) after 13-4 win over Turkey: "We got a really good start there. We're playing well and we know we've got some tough games coming up, so we need to make sure we're firing for them, but I feel we still have a few gears to step up."

Magnus Ramsfjell (skip, Norway) after 8-6 win over Sweden: "We played really well, especially in the last couple of ends. We had a really bad game yesterday, but we just decided to play with more motivation and more energy, and it paid off."

Russia 8 - 3 Denmark; USA 9 - 4 Korea; Sweden 6 - 8 Norway; Canada 5 - 7 Switzerland; Turkey 4 - 13 Scotland.
