    Before I made a terrible mistake I remembered that stayman/transfers apply after a 2C-NT bidding sequence! Made the 13th trick by playing my remaining trump right at the end to try and coax them into discarding clubs, they obliged 🙂

    Bidding the slam would have been a stretch what with the potential for the heart suit to misbehave. Also had the diamonds split 5-1 I wouldn’t have been able to discard a loser on the last one

    Bidding System: 4 card majors, weak notrump, weak twos, transfers.

    @graeme Not sure if our bidding was correct. Just wondering how we could have bid to slam? I went straight to 3NT after the 2 diamond bid.
