Bajir wrote Oh I sure messed that one up by not thinking enough about entries to South. Dang that's frustrating when you see those winners just sitting there with no way to get back!

Bajir wrote They stopped at 3S for me. For folks who defended against 4S, did they bid that high on their own or did you provoke them by bidding after East's 3S?

Bajir wrote Thanks @purpleheart! Must be an Acol vs Standard difference in the response to the 1S opening? Interesting.

Bajir wrote Looks like you're set up to play strong 2s. To switch to weak 2s, go in the game screen menu and edit your settings. Hope that helps!
Bajir wrote Perfectly timed!
Bajir wrote @501tc @jobridge good question! Reading so many comments makes me think we bid to the right level. Just one of those hands where everything breaks in our favor. What fun!

Bajir wrote What was your strategy for defending this hand? When did you decide to win with your aces?

tessybear wrote Took them down 2 - led a small then all my Aces when I got in @Bajir, as I suspected a possible void - only regret is that I did not double. I usually do when I can take 3 tricks, but this one bypassed me this morning.

Bajir wrote Lost track how many trumps were still out there so I drew a round too many, losing the chance to ruff a club later. Doh!!!

Bajir wrote First time I played I opened light, we ended up in game, I got another lead and went down 1. 2nd time, passed and we stopped at 3H with a nice diamond lead from E that lead to 10 easy tricks. What a game.

Bajir wrote Thanks for figuring it out. I'm laughing at your "I think...".
Bajir wrote Helpful question @ballca and helpful response @schnellfeuer thanks!
Bajir wrote I passed my first response but then bid 3D over west's 3C figuring it had a good shot of being a worthwhile sacrifice or that it might bump them up. Worked out this time but with such a weak hand it felt risky.

Bajir wrote I tried replaying from N and I think all we need to know sitting there, after partner opens the bidding, is how many aces South has. After learning we have all of the aces and kings, seems an easy swing for the fences.
