Players like to complain when the robots do crazy things. Yes, sometimes they don't play well, but often the make plays that an average club player wouldn't find, such as this one.
The auction was 1♣ Pass 3♣ (preemptive) to me. I held:
♠J 7 ♥K J 8 ♦A K Q 7 6 5 4 3 ♣ --
What would you bid? I'm old and conservative, so I bid only 3♦. The surely auction won't end there, will it? Unfortunately, everyone passed, West led the ♠K, and this was what I saw:
It looks like it might make 5♦, but look what happened. West continued with the ♠A and the ♠Q. On the third round of spades, East ruffed with the ♦10 and that set up a trump trick for his partner. Here are all four hands:
East's play is called an uppercut. Bridge is filled with colorful expressions such as this. Don't you love it.
I'm still not sure how to get to 3NT. A 4♠ contract might also make, and I got a bad score.
