    Brain better, but I should note the bidding before playing – age problem.
    Made game though.

    @graeme I am not set to play 5 card majors so hint should not have said to bid 2 spades with only 3 spades? . I did and ended up in 4spades for a great score but don’t feel it was right?

    • catspaw15 says:

      @choceclaire I didn’t want to bid 2 spades with only 3 spades either but you can still end up in 4 spades if you bid a negative double instead. (“I’ve got enough points to bid something (1NT) but East’s overcall has stopped me bidding it Partner”) North rebids 4H and you can either leave it as I did in this case or put it back to 4 spades.

    How did you make 10 tricks?
    I agree with chocelaire, as far as bidding with four-card majors is concerned, though still only made 9 tricks.

      @negev played several times making 9 tricks. Finally made 4 by letting them win a heart trick with the Q – that left only 4 trumps out there so could draw these then discard 2 clubs on the remaining heart tricks.

  8. I played this as hand 11 because I lost it at the start of play. First I supported ptns suit but we went down. On replay I let the oppo’s play their diamonds, contract down 1.

    Best defence: EW take three clubs and one heart. ONLY non-optimal defence allows NS to make 10 tricks

    This is pretty cool! I’m on a plane flying to Orlando to play in the World Series of bridge starting next week. There’s internet available on the flight so what better way to pass the time up here than playing Sky Bridge Club on my phone.

    This was an easy raise to 2S, doesn’t matter if you’re playing 4 or 5 card majors. I’d like to have more spades but I don’t. No other choice.

    Can only seem to make 9 tricks !

    Was surprised that north bid 4 on that hand. However, made 10 by setting up hearts early in play, bit of a dream run with both Q/J sitting with east, so finesse worked giving me all 5 heart tricks

    Made 11 Spades. I think by keeping Qs in dummy to trump a diamond and play the winning Hearts.
