Hand Commentaries

Apologies!

Although the results shown are correct for Tuesday's Championship Pairs, you may have noticed that the accompanying hand records on this website are not the ones we played - the printed sheets were correct.  

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

After partner's evident dislike of her hearts I thought I would try again, maybe a no trump contact was just round the corner?  Her excellent bid of 3S ended the auction, probably expecting a couple of diamond ruffs in the short hand. West had an easy lead of CQ which after some thought, East ducked round to my K.  The DA and a diamond ruff took me to dummy - I didn't really want to be in dummy!  My clubs were losers so that seemed a good way out.  East won, cue more thoughts followed by a small spade to my J, East's K and dummy's A - in dummy again!  A club exit worked last time so I tried again, West winning; her exit with a club should have been easy. A spade would expose her winning Ten whilst a diamond gave me the ruff I wanted.  For some reason she chose the diamond, I ruffed and was back in dummy.  Time for a heart so I led the Ace which West ruffed - so that was why she gave me the diamond ruff!  Now she led a club which I ruffed, drew trumps and ended with 3 spades plus 1 and a top.

As so often - many questions!  Why did East not win the opening club lead and signal his doubleton?  Why did West return that diamond rather than the club?  Why did so many declarers make only 8 (or even 7) tricks in hearts?  No declarer made the optimum 9 tricks in hearts.  Sorry but I cannot give you the aneswers!
