Bridge 6th June

Congratulations to the visitors, Andrea & Stephen Macheel who came first this week with a score of 69%.

A popular slam was 6♣ on board 20, which makes all 13 tricks unless the defence cash their A at trick 1. A more adventurous slam was bid and made by a couple of pairs on board 12 — this time, the defence can take two tricks off the top, on a diamond lead (not easy for East to find), with a third possible loser in hearts (declarer has to "find the queen"). Despite that, two pairs made an overtrick in that slam.
