Pivot Challenge latest news

First blood to the Abbott in Match 1 of 5 for May. With Bonzo on the sub bench, the troops where led by Check Back Charlie in what he described as a rout. This hand, as slams often do, represented a chunk of the damage. 

2NT is Jacoby and 3♣  showed a second suit. I like to play 4♠  opposite 2NT as showing a minimum with a 5332 shape. 3♣  shows a minimum with some sort of feature and all other bids show extra values. Despite the second suit being of the least interest, West powered on to an unbreakable slam.

The full schedule of matches can be viewed by clicking here  In the second leg of the encounter against KPMG L & L extracted sweet revenge with a convincing vitory.  In match 4 L & L built up a commanding lead with two boards to go, when this board came up. I gather the post mortem is still in progress. Nevertheless it was victory again with just enough VP's to join KPMG at the top of the leader board. Running score P4-W3-L1

Something has gone very wrong with Funbridge. The way to score well is to outwit the bidding engine, by makeing a bid that you wouldn't necessarily make at the table . This isn't bridge, but very akin to a computer game where you are pitting your wits against the programmer. Harmless you might think, until you are unlucky enough to play with someone in real life who has learnt their bridge on this portal.

Conundrum for the week

Almost everyone plays opening 2 bids as weak, but does this make sense in 4th seat. Obiously not, so how does your convention card change in this position.
