11 January 2018 League 1 Summary

The results showed a fairly flat set of boards. That’s surprising since NS had three thin slams. On board 1, nobody who bid to 6S made it. Deep Finesse says it can be done, but it’s not obvious how on a trump lead. 6H on board 3 needs a 2-2 trump break (or Q singleton). 6D on 10 is good, needing either the heart finesse or a 4-2 spade break, but it’s difficult to bid minor-suit slams with a combined 27 points. Congratulations to Brian and David, who managed it.

Latchem and Dunlop reversed their poor early season for with victories (12-8 against Williamson and 19-1 against Ashton respectively) The results left Blandy 6 points clear of Williamson at the top, with Webb and Buck a further 15 back. The bottom of the table is more crowded, with Ashton only 8 VPs behind the fifth-placed teams.
