    This isn’t the 1st time North hasn’t held stops in opponents suits. Teaches me not to trust him!! Seems crazy also with his diamond holding.

    @amafyram I can’t really get too upset. There is a certain logic to it. 5332 balanced hand. Game is on but it is devilishly difficult to make in a minor suit .There is a 2 trick buffer advantage to 3NT so which has the bigger risk? I foolishly pushed him too hard to try for 6 but don’t feel to bad about going down . Just needed the Heart finesse to go our way

    Look on the bright side, folks, the 3NT bid stopped East and West getting to 4S which they would have made.

    I agree with @hound. N had good reason to expect 5 tricks in diamonds and he had a couple Aces on top. I had opened, so he might of expected a bit more help from me. Yes, the spades were a bit risky, but there’s nothing in anyone’s auction I’ve seen so far to say it was the opps suit. So N took a gamble – and it didn’t pay off… Stuff happens.

    East thoughtfully only took 4 spade tricks before switching – not sure why but I am sure it was great for me!

    I see the reasoning behind partners bid although the spade weakness should have been more of a worry. Why not bid 1 over 1 with a view to bidding 3NT next time or 5 if partner shows enthusiasm for spades.

    Well if 3NT had come off all would have been glory – I think it a reasonable gamble ! The trouble with being wise after the event it is easy to quibble – these things happen in real life – it is all part of the fascination of the game !
