FRIDAY 7 DECEMBER 6.30
There will be a pre-bridge glass of wine and mince pies
Dress code: it is Christmas after all
The format of the bridge is yet to be decided but the Challenge Trophy round has been moved to the 14th
There will be no bridge in the afternoon
Just for once we got something right.
Describing North as 8 playing tricks is a bit of a push. 2D relay.
3H strong and positive. 4C and we had found the club fit.
6 clubs makes 6 Spades shouldn’t.
What happened at your table?
Been out so sorry for the late submission.
At least you bid the slam. The only ones!
6S can and does make but it takes some playing. Say, AD lead and assume another D which declarer ruffs, AK Spades and the Q H. Cross to dummy with club to the K, taking care of the singleton Jack which is key. Then play AK hearts dumping the A and Q of clubs! Next ruff the diamond and back to dummy with a club to either the 10 or 8. Play the other one of those to take west’s final club and then when you play dummy’s last club west is stuffed!! All he has left are his two trumps
There’ll be a fancy name for this like a strip squeeze or a Jeff coup - either way you’d be proud if you played it that way.
