Theme: communication.

It’s important that you can reach your partner.

From both an example.

Trick1: 5 - 2 - K - 3

Trick2: 5 – 2 – Q – 3

Trick3: 4 - 6 - 9 - J

Trick4: 8 – 4 – 10 - A

Trick5: 6 – K - 8 - 6

Declarer now has 2 tricks.

The J; A K; A; A makes 7, so if the -finesse is ok it makes 8.

There are problems in communication. First playing and Q is wrong makes 1 down.

Extra information: West asked if 2 was forcing, so West has certainly some points.

The solution is simple: play at once 9 and finesse.

If Q is with East you make 8 tricks.

If Q is with West and he returns there also are no problems.

If West returns you play A and 10 and hope the are now 3-2.

Declarer makes 4 -Tricks, 2 –Tricks and 2 -Tricks.

If East refuses the 2nd you play A and discard A.

Declarer makes 2, 2, 3 and a -Trick.

The communication of the defenders.

Trick1: Q - 2 - 9 - 3

Trick2: J - K - A - 7

Not playing K is better. South can have A dubbleton.

If South has A 9 5, he wins the third trick.

South now plays something, and you gain tempo.

Trick3: 5 - 8 - 10 - 6

Trick4: 4 and now East has to discard something, it became 3

Trick 4: 4 - 3 - 5 (diamond signal) - 4

Trick5: 6 (first a small for the communication) to J

Trick6: to the Q for K

Trick7: 4 and now 3 -Tricks were cashed.

South discards twice .

Trick10: J to A from West.

Trick11: -finesse for South.

Trick12: for North.

The last was for the declarer. 1NT -4 is not a score you make every day.

At the end a question of to do or not to do. First answer the following question, then read the text below.

Do you have the courage to double 6?

1 was 17+ points, 1 showed 3 Controls (A=2; K=1), after that everything was natural.

East knows that EW miss one control, so that is the one your partner has.

Q5

?

The actual situation:

6 went -2, did you say double?

No, because West had a 6-card and the controls were on EW side A K Q; A; A K Q; A K.

South had J x x.

So if you double West tries 6NT.

They make this with 5 -Tricks and the other Aces and Kings.

East complained it was a very bad distribution, -suit 5-1.

The advantage of 1 17+ and the answer is that you can exchange information

After 3 the correct bid is 3 from East.

Then West can bid 4 and you know that 6 has a better chance.

The bad sequence was punished in a hand shuffled board.

In teams on the long term the most safe slam scores.

I hope we have more communication in the future, Louis.
