Report from 4 boards we played last Friday, teams, at Atomic 4-02-2005.

Theme: Fat scores in bidding the game, although little chances (part 2).

The three matches were played 8 boards a match.

Don’t be afraid to bid game.

Our last match consisted in playing 8 times game out of 8.

Now come 3 boards from match2.

Funny that North still sees opportunities in playing the game. Both 3NT and 4 are possible for NS. West does not let this happen and bids 4. I think he has to bid this anyway.

Because you make it. At our table 3 +1; our teammates 4 contract.

Trick1: K – 2 – 8 – Q

Trick2: A

Trick3: 9 – 10 - 3 - 9

Trick4: to the A

Trick5: Q - K - A - 2

Trick6: J

Trick7: A

Trick8: Q and let it run for the K

Trick 9: continued, ruffed by South

Because the were 3-3 devided you ruff anything in North and the are high.

If the were 4-2 you can discard 2 on the K and the high .

4 contract was also played at the other table(s). No difference therefore.

There was a difference on board 7.

Comment on 2:

If North bids 2 after 2, South can bid 2.

We play this slightly game-invite,5-card and 3-card .

Trick1: 10 - 4! - Q - 3

Trick2: 8 (-signal) - 7 - 9 - J

Trick3: A - 2 - 3 - 3, ruffed from length

Trick4: Q - A - 2 - 5!

Trick5: K - 4 - 6! - 10

Trick6: K, in North discarded, ruffed with J

Trick7: to A from North

Now I could reach dummy with 2 to 4 and discarded the last on 6.

That’s why the ! are placed after 4 en 5.

An unbelievable +790. At the other table 4 -2. Total profit: +990.

At this end a nice bidding sequence:

I, East, wanted to tell:

I have the side controls.

I want to play .

I have a hand with tricks, if West has 10+ points and a 5-card .

This I could do with one bid, 5. Beautiful isn’t it?

The reality:

The lead from North: , the 7 the 8 to the J.

West first played A and North put his bare Q.

To be 100% sure the trumps were played first. After that the rest.

The -suit were only 4 tricks, North had 10 and 4 more.

So 6 just made. (Other table 4 +2).
