I played online bridge tonight. Blogger Michael Yuen and I had a nice game. He's a good guy and terrific bridge player.
Feeling warmed up, I played a second tournament, this time with Kate. On the last board I held:
♠A K Q 7 6 2 ♥K 4 ♦8 7 3 ♣K 3.
Kate opened 1NT which shows 13 to 15 high-card points in our version of Precision Club. What would you do?
I knew we had 28 to 30 HCP, so slam would be a stretch. With that many points, it often plays the same in notrump, and it was matchpoints. MPs makes us do crazy things, so I bid 3NT. I've done that before and they've led the suit!
As you can see, if the ♥A had been onside, it would have made slam. As it was, we made five and scored 84.4%.
The board was played 108 times. You can see all the results for this deal if you go here.
