• Raised partner’s 1S with limit bid of 3S. Followed up partner’s raise to 4S with cue bids twice, once for hearts next for clubs to indicate void/single turn and first round control. Ended up 6S. Kept 7. No losers. Partner should have bid 7S being void in diamonds and because of my two cue bids meaning control in all suits.

  • Responded to 1 Heart with 1 Diamond and raised 2 Hearts to 4 on second attempt. Spade lead won by Ave Of West, won second spade with North’s King, ruffed remaining spade and led small club from South. West didn’t take with the ace, without realising North’s single turn. Gave away only two more hearts for Ace and King. Would have been down if West…

  • 3NT. . With such good distribution have to score 2 spades, 2 hearts, 3 clubs and 3 diamonds (Ace, Q and Ten) because of diamond lead. Only entry to dummy for club finesse is diamond queen. Take diamond lead with Ace and play small diamond, once or twice, to enter dummy for the club play. Luckily diamond king with East.

  • 1NT Stayman 1D to a contact of 4H. Spade loser, 2 club losers and 1 or 2 diamond losers. After taking the diamond lead from hand, pulled trumps by playing thrice, gave the fourth diamond away discarding from hand spade loser, entered dummy through club Ace and discarded one club loser on last scoring diamond. Gave away only one Club and one…

  • Thanks, chance22. Only way to keep the contract of 4H was by scoring 3 clubs, but to do that, have to remove the threat of ruffing in Clubs by opponents, which is likely given that we have 8 clubs. Therefore, have to play two rounds of trumps. Only 2 rounds in order to retain one trump to ruff any diamond lead. However, if E, having won with…

  • Bid clubs and spades against hearts of partner and diamonds of opponents to eventually end up in 4 hearts. Disregarded attraction of cross ruffing diamonds and spades because of control of spades or further diamond play and possibility of creating club tricks. Played two round of trumps and made scoring tricks out of clubs, giving away ace and…

  • When I first played opponents kept 3NT simply because my partner, having won my diamond lead with the queen, returned a diamond despite declarer being void, making all dummy’s diamonds winners. North should have retained club ace and spade king to block entry to dummy and played a heart. That is obvious without looking at all hands. Then…

  • Bid and kept 6S only due to diamond lead and return of diamonds by East. Then ruff remaining diamonds of hand pull trumps and play hearts to discard losing clubs.

    Once scoring ace of diamonds, East should never return the suit as dummy is now void and even if West ruffs, it would be over ruffed by dummy.

    Looking at dummy, East cannot play even…

  • Though keeping 4 spades is easy, cannot bid 4 spades eith only 7 points, unless partner bids it. With heart distribution, have to play high from hand until covered by king. You give only one club and 2 diamonds. With 9 spades, have to pull trumps first for safety.

  • Bid 4 spades. Pulled trumps. Played heart Q and J from hand. Gave out one Club and 2 diamonds only. Kept 4.

  • Started 1NT, response 2D on transfer, hence bid 4H and kept 5 greatly helped by lead of ace of D ruffed in dummy. Then pulled trumps, discarded 2 losing spades on king and queen of D, led small spade from dummy taken by King of East making Queen score. Finned C king successfuly. Gave away only queen of H and king of S.

  • Initially EW bid 4H and kept easily. Having seen EW strength, I played as W asking for a redeal and selecting W, who was void in D, and having 7C with A and K, ace of hearts and ace of spades. Bid 6C and kept 7 by playing 10 of hearts from dummy covered by south and dropping single turn Q of North. Finned Q Of spades towards ace. Keeping 6 was…

  • Blackwood for Aces and Kings. Bid 6 Hearts with one ace and one king missing. Since opponents’ heart ace has to win, cannot afford to fin the club lead as the only way to keep is by discarding losing clubs on spades. Having won with club Ace, switched to spades and when third spade ruffed by East, over ruffed. Re-entered dummy to play one more…

  • With so many points and partner’s support for spades, probed little slam by asking for aces. Since partner had none, settled for 5 spades and kept 6. Whatever play, it’ll keep 6 due to partner’s jack of clubs and Jack of hearts.

  • Own strong H and D perfectly complements partner’s S and C for a NT contact, hence after partner’s second bid of 2C, straight away went for Blackwood. Overall 3 aces and 3 kings prompted to end up 6NT. Gave only lead of C ace, finned King of Spades and kept contact. If West did not cover S Jack, would have played S again (10) and shifted to D…

  • Bid and kept 3 NT as above by passing first round bid and bidding 3 NT over partner’s rebid of 3H.

  • Kept 3rd by ducking the Club lead and wining 4 C tricks, 3 D, 1 H and 1 S. Straight forward, helped by double turn D of East and bad club play by East.

  • With strong hearts jumped to 3H. Club lead helped, played low by hand and won by Q of dummy. Two rounds of trumps, give to ace of D and one spade. Pull the last trump and kept 5 with 3 D winners.

  • Bid 3D over opponent 2D to indicate D control and partner’s follow up 3H increased to 4H. After winning the D lead with the ace, played jack of C to pull the Ace. Played trumps twice ending up in dummy and played Club winners discarding losers. Gave away ace of C and 2H only and kept contact.
