GTO in the WYTC

Not talking Pontiacs

Ben Kristensen was lauded recently for his 6 cuebid which might have led to a great 7 grand slam if partner held the A instead of the A

Toward the end of the first set in the Junior Quarterfinals vs Singapore:

West is looking at two defensive tricks and a partner who jumped in hearts.  The spades might be 4-0.  Ben's pass of the double, which deterred an EW five level heart call, surely led to winning 13 IMPs, no?

GTO = Game Theory Optimal 

Creativity on display.  SUPERB!
