Aggressive doubles in pairs, but play them down!

Since I wrote an artikel about double in pairs, for the magic 200, we were doubled yesterday 6 times. That’s 25% of all boards. And because from these 24 we played 12 ourselves 50% of our contracts. These 6 contracts had to go down all, but in 5 of the 6 cases we made them.

We can therefore conclude that the defence has to be improved at Atomic.

I will describe 2 boards.

Q 8

It has to be possible for NS to cash 5 tricks. North leads A, south plays 6 (discouraging).

North plays K, South plays J, high for -signal. After that 3 -tricks van be cashed.

On this board K lead, A and were played. That can’t be good play. West must have a -stop. Then came 7 times in North 2 were discarded.

We scored 3NT dbl +2 that’s 1150 (I didn’t know).

?? If North bids 4 at once South must pass if he has or bid 4 if he has .

If North bids 2NT (strong) and South responds then this suit is agreed.

North inventd 2 (weak) supposing South had a 6-crd .This was a new experience for us after the multi. East started A and played Q for the K from North. The continuation of A was ruffed by East. Sir West laughed laudly, this is not decent.

If East playes Q the contract cannot be made, but because North had promised to be weak, played Q. North won with K, ruffed a diamand with 7 and played Q.

West plays H and North ruffs with 8. East ruffs higher and again playes for K.

On the high J North discards his losing .East ruffs again, but only becomes 2 ruffs and A . Well, I can laugh about that. I actually did, which is not decent.

I won’t do it again, that’s a promise.

Louis, the dutch player.
