If partner has the same distribution we prefer playing 3NT.

This was explained at the table.

East thought:ifl South has a 4-crd , West has 5 . So the lead was K.

After this unlucky lead I played 5 times and finess on the Q, and also to the K.

The hearvest: 80 %

On board 16 no blessing.

After lead and continuation I expected the -length by West. If he is short in the other colours there is no harm to play A te slaan, maybe West has the bare Q or K.

Now 2NT went -1, still gaining 64,70 %

Spel 20 I did the wrong thing.

The lead was 10, the 5 by West, in North the Q.

I thought that Q could be placed by East. Then 6 -tricks,2 or 3 -tricks, 2 -tricks and A can be a possibility for 11 or 12 tricks.The good news: J made the trick, to the J also, after that and now East plays 10.

The suit was 4-1. I had to finess the 10. This is good when West has the bare Q or 3-2 or 4-1. In pairs not an easy decision.

West may not discard , so discards or .

Another high A and West has another probleem.

North discards .After that -finess, A, A,another for West.

He made his K but didn’t have another . So he had to play a to North for his ninth trick..

Sill good for 60,29 %. Not everyone played 3NT, I think.

Lead 10.The contract cannot be made if you play A and K.

East has to take the A, otherwise North has no losers.

If he continues West should lead .

Also when playing low on the first trick West can return .

I played low and West returned . Then the contract is made.

After these two heats we are 20th place, good for the first mixte price.

Heat 3 is still to come.

Q 10 4 3

The lead was 9, North nthe A and 7 return.

East dared not to play J ans played the K. After this K thinking that if South has V , North has V. This is consequent play, because North dit open the bidding. On this play North had only 11 points. Now East tried 2 for the K from North and North played Q. After this for the J from West. Now the declarer tried A and South ruffed and waited for minus one holding Q 10.

With open cards in trick 2 J, then A en Q for the K from North.

If North chooses and South ruffs South he has a problem what to play now.

A small trump leads to 3 +2. A is simply ducked and goes to 3 +1.

That looks totally different then 3 -1.

I didn’t dare to double, what a coward. Suppose I do double. This will beo n holding many trumps. If declarer after 4 begins with A and plays A K and ruffed and then continues with there are many variations, but most of them leading to:

West 5 -tricks, East 3 toptricks and 10.

We defended 4 -2. Still there were many 4 dbl -2.

The lead K.This contract simply is made by ducking this first trick.

Nice problem for a bridge magazine or someone who hasn’t read this article.

The second you take with the A, cross with a trump, ruff a high, cross with a trump etc.

East played A and North played J. After two trumps the declarer played A and K which North still was able to ruff. Now ther were suddenly 1 and 2 -losers.

Q 3

After Q lead it must be possible drawing trumps and play a small from dummy.

East loses A, A, another -trick en K.

Also in the bidding it is handsome to play 2 als 8-11 punten, not forcing.

Declarer played at our table to tje Q, so went minus 2.

The next board I defended unlucky, no very bad if I may say so.

The lead 2 to the 10. Then to the Q and Q.

I slept, played the K and continued stupid Q. Counting points West showed in and 7 points and A. Total of 18 punten.

So South has 2 -pictures. So a small return gives us another 3 tricks.

Now 3NT +2 is our soapscore.

I will end with one play which had a happy ending.

The lead 2 and I see 2 slagen in , 3 in the majors and A.

Even if K is well placed the Q also has to be well placed, a has tob e ducked in the hope this suit will be divided 3-3 or K with East in a dubbleton. Also the must not be extreme. Trick1: ducked for the K; Trick2 10 to the A from South.

Trick3: 10 not covered, what now? Decision to finess.

Another -finess and and A and on K East had to discard.

was out of the question, then South scores with a finess 6 tricks.

was a sinn, so the result was a . Now I played A K unblocking 10 and 9 in dummy.

I continued with 8 and 5 wegdoen and East again had some problems.

He got rid of his hearts. After this 8 and 5 were high.

The last trick was for A. A funny 3NT +3 without a finess on K.

Sadly we did wrong to many things, resulting in the 25th place.

The reward was a bridge-diploma, also very nice.

Greetings from Louis, the dutch player.
