MrsH wrote Bid 3, made 3.... Showed strength and length with jump to 3. Partner wisely passed. Will try NT as it might be there if opponents let me make it.

MrsH wrote Yes, it makes easily for a share of top spot...if I had done that on first try.

MrsH wrote Probably figured E for the remainings and that N would trump it anyway.

MrsH wrote In my book, X in this case indicates a "stolen bid" and N should have bid 3s. Maybe the interference deterred him but he should know we have a 5-3 split. I likely would not raise to game level. I tried twice and could only make 9, others made 10. But as @gupgop says, decent defence puts 4 down. Any comment on the X @graeme?

MrsH wrote @Poppingpopcorn, @tessybear, greetings from the Dominican Republic..we're here for three weeks to get away from snow and more snow. Our daughter, her husband and three of our grandkids will be joining us for a week so that will be a fun and busy time. I always enjoy reading comments from fellow SBC players. Some are welcome commiserations after a poor hand, some are sharing the pleasure of a well played hand, some just friendly chitchat; many are very encouraging and others are helpful in showing a better approach. I like to think I learn something from all of you.

MrsH wrote Yes, we call Canada home...on the shores of Lake Huron. A great place on the summer, but the winters do leave something to be desired. Not terribly cold, but due to "lake effect" mostly cloudy all winter with plenty of snow...often sideways snow with the winds so roads are closed occasionally for safety's sake.

graeme wrote What a nice partner you are, @MrsH. If North could speak he’d say that, I’m sure. Well done to both of you.

MrsH wrote Down a bunch for -500 in 5♠X on first go. Decided to give them the X on 5 and put them down one on replay for a pretty good score.

MrsH wrote Bid 4, made 6 on first try. My gut said slam was there but i wasn't sure how to get there and didn't like being void in partner's suit (in retrospect,that might be a good thing) Bid 5 and partner took me to slam. Followed @hound's advice and made 13 on retry.

MrsH wrote Where is the X when you need it? I must go back to my "double on principle" routine. Put them down 2.

MrsH wrote Also made 12. Not sure if I played well or just got lucky. Partner's 20 plus my lone Ace didn't add up to 25 points needed for game in my books.
