Tutorial October 25th
Alan & Andrew were the only ones to bid 6 Spades on this hand and the only ones to make 12 tricks.
Very skillful, deep finesse says it should always make but not easy I suspect.
What happened at your table?
Andrew opened 2NT, which we play as 20-22. He's only got 19 but upgraded because of the 5th heart
I transferred to spades and then bid 3NT, without a fit I wasn't interested in going on.
Andrew bid 4 Spades and now I was interested
4NT (RKCB) 5C (0 or 3 key cards)
6S (it must be 3 key cards)
Andrew drew 2 rounds of trumps and used his entries to lead hearts and ruff them good, making 3 heart tricks, allowing him to discard a diamond and a club from dummy . He was able to ruff a diamond in dummy and a club in hand. Defender could take the QS whenever he wanted.
