DIAMOND STATE SECTIONAL RESULTS
DIAMOND STATE SECTIONAL RESULTS

Check out the results on your right. Congratulate your sectional champions!

Saturday 08/26 Morning Board 14 DSBA Open

North/South tries for slam and finds themselves in real trouble.  East leads 9♠ to the 5,Q,A♠ .  The Q  is led, east shows out and west ducks (thankfully). Can you avoid losing a club, a heart, and a spade?

The only chance is that west holds exactly two clubs.  Play off dummy's AK , and AK♣ (On the second club west plays the J♣ ). There is hope. Now play the J♠ from dummy.  When west wins, his only safe exit is a diamond; which declarer ruffs in dummy.  Now declarer plays A , and another, and west is forced to lead a diamond again, allowing declarer to pitch his losing club in hand while ruffing in dummy.

West must win the first heart trick, cash the K♠ , before giving up the lead to avoid the endplay.

Wednesday 08/16 Board 1 Bridge Studio

As south would you bid 2♣ , then 3♠ smolen, planning to pass 3NT if bid?

At every table but one, declarer lost the obvious two aces making five.  At the last table after receiving the Q♣ lead, declarer saw a chance to make six...and took it.  What would you do?

After winning the Q♣ lead with the A♣ ,  the J was led and allowed to win. With only the 10 to worry about declarer set out to make dummy's diamond go away.  K♣ and another club ruffed in dummy.  When clubs broke 3-3 there was no more risk.  A spade to the A♠ , and a fourth club led planning to discard the diamond.  When east ruffed in with the 10 dummy overruffed with the K .  Now a spade to the J♠ and the fifth club.  East helplessly played the A and watched as dummy's lone diamond was discarded.  Making six, and all the match points.  This time the risk was worth itwink
