Unauthorised Information (UI)

Members are reminded that asking questions and then passing can be construed as UI. Do not ask if you have no intention of bidding. This is similar to Hesitation then passing. Players should have system cards at all times and check with their opponents before playing the first hand to find out what their system is, this will reduce the need to ask questions. Questions can still be asked after the bidding is finished and  before the first card is played without fear of UI. However, members are asked to be tolerant with novice players.

Hand Commentaries

A few of our members have had their arms twisted and have agreed to provide intermittent commentaries on hands that proved difficult/interesting/impossible to bid or play. Needless to say, volunteer authors are most welcome!

Commentary on hand

Valentine’s Day 2017

 

The big news story was that Norwich drew at home to Newcastle – two points dropped as the gap to that elusive play-off position widened again.  At Abbey Hall, with hand dealt boards there was action aplenty with slams bid and made on four boards in 6 different contracts – and hands where slams were made but not bid.

Only one pair found slam on this hand.  East opened 1 heart (four card majors).  West held:

S KQJxxx

H Axxx

D T

C Ax

 

The options seem to be immediate support for Hearts by way of splinter in Diamonds or a Jacoby style 2NT.  I preferred to show my hand with 1S.  Partner bid 1NT – now what?  I figured a heart bid would now sound weak so decided on a little lie – 2C (natural)!   Partner’s 2D enabled me to bid 3H which partner converted to 3N – he clearly didn’t think much of his heart suit!

 

My 4NT was Roman Key Card in the last bid suit (hearts) and partner’s 5C was either 0 or 3 controls.  Three meant the two missing Aces and the King of hearts.  I bid 6N fully expecting 6 tricks in spades, four in hearts and the two outside Aces.  In the event, partner was fully justified in his assessment of his heart suit – we made 6 spades, 3 hearts, the AK of clubs and the A of diamonds.

Partner’s hand:

S Ax

H Kxxx

D AQxx

C Kxx

Why was non-one else there?  Two pairs found 6H with others stopping in game - I guess the opening support for partner's hearts closed the route towards No Trumps.  At teams 6H must be the safest contract but at pairs the rules are slightly different!
