ATB (Attribute The Brillency)

In my country it is frowned upon to draw attention to ones own success.  For this reason this article is both a blow for freedom and an acquiescing of the role of attribution to you.  In short its a bit of fun.

  

It is the final match of a 6 week club teams competition you are in the final having had a very mixed event and sit 4th.

1NT = 12-15

2 = Game try + (South could transfer but this allows them to stay at the 2 level if there is no fit and opener is minimum)

3 = maximum 5

4 = 1st or 2nd round control (now that North has 14-15 with 5 slam not game seems possible)

X = lead directing

4 = 1st or 2nd round (willing to go past 4 so must have good controls for the 14-15)

5 = Turbo 1 or 3 key cards + 1st round control in

6 = North worked out out that the 5 shows a void (so 1 key card out side the void) only because of the lead directing X without which 5 is the limit

 

 

Bad Bidding and Dumb Luck
Normal Bidding - nothing to see here
100% North for working out that 5 shows a void because of the lead directing X
100% South for imagining slam with a 9 count opposite a weak NT
about 50/50 bridge is a partnership game
100% West for that helpfull lead directing X
