TriciaCallow wrote I'm not so sure I should have been in a slam. With only 30 points and an ACE missing, it was lucky to make 12 tricks, with ♣s and s splitting.

TriciaCallow wrote Did you make 10 tricks with North as declarer? For me, East leads s and takes 5 tricks off the top before I get in. The only way I can make the game is by South bidding 3NT, when West leads K then switches to a allowing me to make 12 tricks. Come to think of it, the way North bids 3NT without a stop in the opponents' suit, I might as well shut my eyes and bid 3NT anyway.

TriciaCallow wrote Well, yes and no. I bid 1♠ over East's 1♣ (not 1) so they bid themselves up to game in ♣s which they made. Bottom score for me. If I'd overcalled 3♠ like many other people (and the hint) I'd have had a very respectable score.

TriciaCallow wrote Well, that finished off a really sad bridge day in the manner it had become accustomed to. I was beating myself up about not making 3NT on this hand, when I thought - maybe it's the lead, which for me was a ? So I made South the declarer and, sure enough, got a lead and made 10 tricks.

TriciaCallow wrote I didn't go for 3 because I had 9 losers. But partner only had 5 losers and yet didn't bid again. 30% and falling so far today ...

TriciaCallow wrote With such a nice hand and only 5 losers, if I'd been North, I'd have gone straight to 4♠ and saved South the agonising decision.
