09 December 16 Premier League Summary

It’s all change at the top, with the two leading teams being beaten convincingly Holden are the new leaders, but 5 points cover the top four teams. With four matches left, we seem to be heading for another exciting finish.

The theme of this session seems to be slams. Deep Finesse managed to find five of them, two of which can make 7. Boards 2 and 7 need a lot of luck. 11 is a decent slam, which appears to need either a 3-3 spade break or the club finesse although there could be entry problems. 19 needs a friendly spade break (3-2 with at least one honour onside), so is not particularly good. The best slam looks like Board 24, as long as W ends up as declarer. That could present a problem for pairs playing a strong NT, or possibly a strong club.
