HAND OF THE WEEK

An extraordinary hand.

how do you get to the optimum 7S contract?

Several managed to get to 6S.

What happened at your table?

philip@thompsonsonline.net

Some of the more experienced pairs will be familiar with the Acol 4 NT  opening bid and might use it here . It is a bid made where declarer is interested in which aces , if any , partner holds and has no interest in anything else . The responses here are 5C to show no aces , 5D , 5H OR 6C to show just one ace in that suit and no other  , 5NT to show 2 aces ,  With the hand of the week a response of 5C or 5D would lead to the correct contract of 5S whereas a response of 5H  or 6C would lead to the correct contract of 6S . Here the response of 5NT would show 2 aces and unfortunately , unless you are a slam gambler like Phil and Natasha , you would settle for 6S because the chance of the missing ace being AD are only one in three .

You should not get too obsessed about partner forgetting the system and treating the 4 NT as ordinary Blackwood . Responses to that of 5C  and  5H would get you to the same contact as the system above . A response of 5D would mean , unless it showed just AD ,  being in 5S instead of 6S
