  Tournament of Brasov (1)  
Louis Stift

Untitled Document

Herewith our experiences in the tournament of Brasov.

I started well by subscribing as the number first. In the evening we were confronted that we were at table 14 EW, this was the last group, last number. We started with sitting still because we had no opponents. This is not the way the organisation should treat foreigners. We got 60% on these two boards. We preferred playing them.

Of cause there were many interesting boards.

South came with the lead of K; so no problem in making the contract.

The following board was the second after sitting still (the 60%).

After the lead of 5 I was for a moment not assured, and also after to the Q for the A.

But because of the were 2-2 divided this score was also in the pocket..

Not everything went well, see board 13.

The lead was 10, 7NT made, no problem.

In stead of 3NT West should mention 3.

If North thinks that West has the -stop, East the 4-crd , then maybe he leads a diamond.

Also 2NT, stronger than 3NT in a game force situation can be considered.

There is room for other bidding, It must ber possible to reach 6, as did many other pairs.

In the past I wrote some articles to reach a grand slam after the opponent started the bidding.

Number 13 was again an example.

I think the last pass from East isn’t right. This should be 2NT.

K is wrong, A and a -trick shall be lost, so you must play the for 0 losers.

I played after the 8-lead for the Q via K and A.

Now 10 North 5 en South K.

If South had the courage to duck you have to decide to finess 10 or to repeat the -finess. Nice defensive play for books.

I could reach the dummy with Q to finess 10. I was not amused, because many pairs now should succeed making 3NT or 4.

The following board went automatic..

The lead was A K Q, yes I’m a coward, then K, and the result was -2.

South discarded some on the first tricks.

4 can be made when, after the lead the third is trumped with J.

Nice problem in bridge puzzles.

The following board was also funny, for us.

The lead 2(5e from above) via J - K – and 6

If you play, like everyone, to the Q, A and you try the -finess and play a low then you gain 12 tricks when and are divided 3-3.

Unless, like our declarer, duck the first trick. Then 11 tricks is the maximum.

When the leader claimed, the were 3-3 I said that also the dummy was high. This was a miracle for him, and for sure after seeing the notated scores 3NT +3.
