Oxfordshire (home) 29/06/2014
Report by John Auld
Our second match of this season followed the pattern of the first: the Dawes team won 11-9, the Porter lost 5-15 and the Markham 1-19. This contrasts with 10-10,  0-20 and 0-20 against Gloucestershire so it is progress of a sort.

The teams:
Dawes: William and Daniel Crook; John and Irene Auld; Frank Ball and Lloyd Eagling; Shirley Ashtari and Ian Dovey
Porter: Carol Fisher and Martin Mellor; Graham Lee and Graham Brindley; Bernard Scanlon and Tim Anderson; Dick Milne and Alyson McLyntock 
Markham: Mary Cook and Bernard Moore; Mike and Daphne Coggles; Phil Dale and Nick Clark; Frank Turton and David Landon 

Shirley Ashtari and Ian Dovey had a big card compensating for my partner and me who were poor. We made a few errors and watched the opposition do some good things as on board 11:
I chose to open 1NT and East naturally ventured 2S. When West found 2NT East could reflect that she had a lot of tricks sitting over e weak NT. For whatever reason it took two more bids to get to the 22 point 3NT which made comfortably. 
This performance was surpassed on board 20:
This time 3NT was bid quite sensibly on 19 points. South treated his hand as one suited and North knew he had the right cards. One can only congratulate them.
It was a good day for bidding 3NT on a long suit. Board 28 was the final example:
When dummy appeared I realised that drifting off in 2H was not quite as desirable as bidding a cold 3NT but playing standard Acol this seems inevitable. At the Crooks table North opened a strong NT and they were on their way. But William and Daniel thought otherwise; East did 2D showing spades and another, South bid 3NT and West saved in 4S. Daniel might have made this as it went but did not want to risk several off. I sympathise-one off was a great score.
And so to be positive the Dawes team continue an unbeaten run. More negatively the new scoring system again proved tedious.
