  Theme in teams

Bucuresti, 22-1-2005

I am working on Bridge20.doc so this is Bridge21.doc.

Report from two boards in the teams competition from Atomic 21-01-2005.

We now also play on Friday to practice this kind of game.

Theme in teams: play carefully as declarer and defend well as opponent. Two examples.

In teams the making of the contract is number one, extra tricks are not so important.

Trick1: 3 - A - 2 - 4

Trick2: K - 7 - 2 - V

How to play now? In this game it went:

Trick3: 5 - 8 - J - K

Trick4: 5 - 8 - 3 - 4

Trick5: 4 - Q - 5 - 6

Trick6: 2 - 6 - 10 - Q

Trick7: 6 - 10 - 9 - 3

Trick8: 7 - 3 - K - K

East has ruffed a and played trump twice.

Trick9: 5 - 7 - J - 3

Trick10: to the A from North

North played J and that was the last trump from East.

After that North ruffed the continuation with 7 and the last became the minus-one-trick.

Analysis:

The best play from East Trick3: play . That’s the long suit which has to deliver the 9th trick. Even in Trick4 the contract can be made if 8 is overtaken by the 9 in East and a small is played. You prevent that East becomes short of trumps.

Board 24 was amusing.

Trick1: A - 4 - 2 - 6

How has North to continue? At this moment West pronounces probably 6 is missed. There sill is one tricky defence. West is marked with a 6-?-?-4 distribution, probably shortness in .

Trick2: J - 7 - 9 - Q

Trick3: 3 - 4 - K - 2

Trick4: K - 3 - 5 - 10

Trick5: 7 - 7 - K - 2

Trick6: 9 - J - Q - 5

Trick7: played, ruffed by South, so 4 -1.

Funny because just was said that 6 was missed.

Evaluation:

It seems that Q had to play Q in Trick 6.

Even then the contract can be made by ruffing with A, play 2 times and discard the A on J. The best play from West is a low in Trick 4, then draw trumps. The 5 can be discarded on the K in a later stadium.

The Italians team analysed their matches to type of faults.

Type 1: declarer didn’t take his legal chance of making the contract.

Type 2: an opponent didn’t take his legal chance to defend the contract.

I can send the 2 examples above to this team if my name was Luigi.

La revedere,

Louis, jucător olandez..
