HAND OF THE WEEK

The bidding at our table was fairly pedestrian with North South ending up in 4H going one off.

Andrew and Alan had a sparkling night, as East West they managed to get into 3NT making!

What happened at your table?

On board 5 the bidding went

1H   2D   2H   3NT

With 14 points opposite a 2 level overcall, a solid stop in hearts and some help in diamonds, I felt I had to bid game.  Unfortunately the 2D overcall wasn't as strong as I'd hoped.  North got off to a good start with the A spades and a small heart to his partners K. If South now switches back to a spade, I'm down. Fortunately he continued a heart, won by the Ace and a heart back (throwing spades from dummy).  Now all I need is for one of the minor suits to break.  The diamonds didn't.  In dummy, I played the K of clubs and on the next trick the question was whether to play for the drop or the finesse?  I knew North had at least 4 (probably 5) hearts, had 4 diamonds and probably had length in spades, so I took the finesse and it was all over.  Of course if North's shape had been 4-5-4-0, playing the K of clubs first from dummy would have been wrong.

Regards

Alan
