HAND OF THE WEEK

No slams bid and made but this one should have been.

my Mind is a total blank as to how we got to 6D , with me west playing them. Perhaps Natasha can help.

We lost the first trick to AH and there was a switch to Clubs which I won in hand with the Ace.

Decision time.

I can either play for the finesse or hope to drop QS. I decided to play for the drop, worried about a ruff somewhere as the hands were all unbalanced, and played a series of diamonds hoping for a spade discard, no luck so ended up losing 2 tricks. With the spades on show no one is going to drop a vital spade so in the cold light of day I should have taken the finesse.

what happened at your table?

ALERTING

ALERTING WHEN PLAYING ONLINE

The person who makes an alertable bid, alerts her/his bid. That is he/she clicks the alert button before making the bid. Her/his partner does not see the alert, whilst the opposition do, hence no unauthorised information is passed on. The opposition can now click on the explain box to find out the meaning of the bid from the bidder again unseen by his/her partner.

See links below for self-alerting these are very clear as to alerting action we should take when playing bridge online.
