First blood to Nickell

On board 92 Rodwell started out with an aggressive 1 opener, meckstroth bid 2, Forcing 1 round.   Rodwell's 2 response showed his partner "11"-13 Balanced.  Meckstroth then chose to have Rodwell be the declarer by transferring him to 2NT and raising.  Notice that gave Stansby an opportunity to make a lead directing double (though he doesn't mind a or lead from his perspective, so its hard to fault him for not making one).
