Looks like the Thai police raided a bridge club and found more then 2 decks of cards
Maybe its an April Fool
Wexford Congress is on this weekend ... GO GO ..
Board 1 saw Marcin Wojech bid a 6S slam versus the 4S up 3 by Hanlon McGann.
Looks like a hand played in club bridge at 4S+3 with lots of things working.
However 3-2 club break and 3-2 club break makes it very cold ... and that's 46% odds.
However there are several other small pieces of odds to add into that.. like if trump queen
drops doubleton .. so adding all up probably over 60%...
10 imps to O'Brien
Board 3 saw Moran winning imps for defending at both tables ... 8 imps for 5 undertricks
Board 7 saw 4D making and 5D down 1 for 6 imps to O'Brien
Board 9 saw one of the Carveys slip home a 4H with 4 top tricks off it and 10 imps
against the 3H up 1 at other table
Board 12 was a 2H part score up and down for 5 imps
Board 13 saw Carvey attempting a strange manoeuvre declaring 3S with 6 trumps.
Sometimes Irish mentor/coach has attempted to explain for years about holding at least
7 trumps to declare ..unless you are Rueful Rabbit or James 3-1 Heneghan.
James rolled home 4H one time with a 3-1 fit ..
Board 14 saw Woj Marcin roll home 4S with lots of trumps and 6 imps in versus partscore by Hanlon McGann. In my club it goes P P P 1S 2S 4S at all tables but my players are not internationals.
Board 15 was the opposite ..partscore v game the other way and 6 imps back
Board 16 saw Carroll Garvey roar to the 5 level and take a chinning ... lose 800
Hanlon McGann got 500 from 4SX ,,but that was 7 imps out
Board 18 saw O'Brien win a part score versus knock 3NT for 5 imps
So fter 40 boards the match is pretty well tied up
Last night a chap in my club declared 3NT ...
xx opposite AQJTxx and he led a diamond towards the AQ ...
I searched out my singleton Diamond King as quick as I could ...but the impatient declarer
had already called for the Queen as he knew from bidding I owned all high card points ..
He attempted some bluster but I fished out the rule book and recalled Mauricio ...
"ITS ALWAYS A PLAYED CARD " ... when declarer does it ..
One more simultaneous pairs and then we are off to Wexford Bridge Congress
