Lingfield run in NICKO comes to an end

Lingfield's run in the NICKO has sadly come to an end. In an exciting and "swingy" match, 135 IMPs changed hands over the course of 24 boards, with 10 game/slam swings in evidence, but the opposing quartet of Grandmasters emerged the eventual winners by 28 IMPs.

The attached hand was a rather precarious Grand Slam bid against Lingfield. The 2H bid showed spades and a minor. The 5S showed two key cards and the QS, 5NT asked for the lowest king in opener's hand, and responder was hoping to hear 6D, but the 6S rebid left him little option than to bid the Grand Slam in hearts. Two spade ruffs in dummy  and a successful club finesse brought home the grand slam and a large swing against lingfield - Ouch!

2010 NICKO - Good run continues for Lingfield A

Roger, John, Dave and Phil's run of luck continues in this event, and they are now through to very stiff opposition in Round 5. Click here to follow their run in the competition.

The hand above (from the fourth round match against Eastbourne B) shows that fortune favours the brave. After two passes, East opened 1C, and Phil overcalled 1S. West made a negative double, and Dave (stretching the credibility of the Losing Trick Count) leapt to 4S, which attracted a double (with conviction) from West. West led the JD, and this mangy 17 point vulnerable 4S produced 11 tricks, for a 13 IMP gain on the hand. He who dares wins.

Lingfield Pair win Easter B-flight Swiss Pairs - 5th Apr 2010

Congratulations to Dave and Phil for winning this event. Click here for full results.

The bidding on the attached hand was unconventional but the logic was reasonable. The 2 was fourth suit forcing: East reasoned that West was short in  for the 2NT bid, hence punted 6, having concealed his 7 card suit on the first round of bidding. West showed considerable restraint by not bidding 7. Slightly less insane bidding might have started  1-2-3(splinter).  

Finding the slam may have been significantly harder had South opened 2

2010 NICKO - Good run for Lingfield A

Congratulations to Roger, John, Dave and Phil who are enjoying a good run in the NICKO (National Inter-Club Knockout) this year. Click here to follow their run in the competition. 

The hand above (from the second round match against Horsham C) was particularly well suited to Phil and Dave's methods. West (Phil) opened 2H showing exactly five hearts (headed by Ace or King) and at least a 4 card minor suit, 6-10 points. East reasoned that West's minor was probably diamonds, but that three clubs could be ruffed (and if West's minor suit was actually clubs, then Christmas had come early). So all that East needed to know was whether West had an Ace to go along with his (known) King of Hearts. The 5H response confirmed two key cards, and the slam on a combined 23 count was easy to bid. The slam was missed by the opposing team.
