    Wow – I gave myself 5 extra points for the void, and 3 for the singleton – and bid 6 spades. And it worked – made 12.

    Well done to those bidding and making a slam.

    In the play of the hand, make sure you ruff one of those diamonds before playing all the trumps. Good idea to take the CK early, too, so you don’t get stranded in the wrong hand later.

    Looking back at it probably not wise to bid the slam if Norths Queen is in any other suit it would be bad

    @tomm24 I stand by our bid. To your point if Norths Q was in another suit then his 3S jump would not be justified. Its risky enough to jump to 3 in suit with only three trumps I think you better have some honors there. Once you know that North has the other two aces I think that slam is worth a try. @Graeme is absolutely right the K of clubs and ruffing a diamond before pulling trumps — I felt like I was walking through a minefield on this hand. Happy to make it to the other side!

    Well this makes up for my other disappointments this morning. Looking back on comments, can see I lucked into right play. Sweating when I played diamonds so I could trump before getting trump cleared.

    49506742 I hit the wrong key and they got an extra diamond trick. Should have made 5 the way I played it. Completely chickened out
    of bidding small slam…17 12 (optimum case) doesn’t add up to 33.
