    I can’t help but feel that @graeme has set up today’s hands to test our resilience! What a laugh as far as I am concerned but I will not allow it to get me down – %uD83D%uDE2D

    Of course NT is the reply to partners double – why didn’t I think of it with heart stoppers –

    Just a little tip here for everyone. You’ve got to get into the habit of making 3NT your default contract when you’re not sure what to do. Sure, it can be bad, but it’s going to be at least as good as anything else more often than not.

    Here’s what Bob Hamman, one of the greatest bridge players of all time, had to say about it:
    “If you have a bidding decision to make, bid 3NT if it’s a plausible choice.”

    He didn’t say bid 3NT if you’re pretty sure you’ll make it, just if it’s a plausible choice.

    Yeah, maybe the hint said 4C, but the hints aren’t always right. 3NT isn’t always right. But if it’s a plausible choice then go for it. Make 3NT your favourite contract. 🙂

    Silly me. When I was unsure what to bid I turned on the hints and it was a disaster. Replayed it going with my own instincts and left the 3H double in with a much better result.

    EW 3HX, down 2
    South led T

    Thank goodness we got them down. What the heck was partner doing over there with that X? “If you want to bid something, bid it.” I thought. LOL

    I see a few people succeeded in NT. @romey78 points out we had heart stoppers, and partner had to have something over there, I guess. Yeah, I guess that does make sense. But it does look like partner would have been better off doing it himself.
