    COUNT! 6nt is easy if you remember to count….first time around went down simply because I lost track of where the card were and so never made use of my last top spade the 4!

  15. I threw in the first hand as I tried to be clever & it didn’t come off. Lesson for later. Rebidding, tried asking for aces but got it wrong. Does the computer play Gerber? I’ll try it after this. On this hand, 4 nt bid, made 12.

    I’m not sure, here, @graeme, @tina. I forced the pace a little with my opening bid of 1NT. (I always think of it as a pre-emptive) I read partner’s response as a limit bid showing 12 points or so, asking me to go to game if I was maximum. With only 11 points, I passed. Of course, 12 tricks is easy. I just think that either a lower bid, or a higher one would have kept us in the auction longer. Or is his response forcing? Where did we go wrong?

    I hit 6 instead of 6. Not to bright. I just skipped it and played again — even though it didn’t count. Played in 6NT and it made very handily. Oh well.

      Don’t worry, @carolecat, I’ve made a typo or too in my time to, but two be honest nobody else really minds. It’s the nature of this quick commenting culture and the darn auto correct sometimes makes some weird decisions to add to the confusion.
