    That was fun cross-ruffing. About the only hand I’ve played well all day but a good note to finish on.

  3. What to do, double clubs or bid on to 5 hearts. Both bids made, but hearts was the winner.

      @poppingpopcorn But 5 hearts only makes due to East’s error. Like you, I doubled their clubs first time and got them off. Then I had a go at 5 hearts – after winning 2 club tricks, East led away from his AD when I was already on limit, so I made. Curiously, whether you go up with the KC or duck to the first lead determines whether East gets it right or not.

  4. Crazy game. Went to 5H; when dummy came down, I thought my bravado was misplaced. However, I then lit on the approach of drawing trump, and cross roughing the two losing suits. Home free, right? Not the way I play. Instead of tabling the winning trump, I dropped a losing card(same color?). Net result, a disaster for a top. The lesson here is important and clear. Focus on what you are doing. Best, Dexter
