NABC Online Individual - Day 2
(Page of 14)

See http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/nabc-online-individual-day-1/ for the previous day, but here are the 75% and above and 25% and below hands for the second session.

 

The first hand out of the box gives us a nice unopposed 2/1 auction to a pretty good 4 contract.  With 4 outside quick tricks and good opportunities to cross ruff I set about and get a rude shock on the distributions.

I thought about leading to the hearts and then leading up to the diamonds, which protects us a little from this diamond holding, but decided I wanted to start ruffing the diamonds more quickly for possibly setting up the diamonds for pitches, and this did not go well.  Even after the diamond A is ruffed I can still make it double dummy by guessing when to ruff higher for the one ruff or trying to create a 5th round heart trick, but my losing to the spade 9 and then getting the club promotion through sinks the contract and -50 was a 22% score.

Here's the complete traveller:

2DWx-3 3 500 96.00%

4SS= 6 420 78.00%

3NN= 2 400 58.00%

3NS= 2 400 58.00%

2SS+2 2 170 46.00%

2SS+1 1 140 40.00%

4SS-1 7 -50 22.00%

4HN-1 1 -50 22.00%

6SS-2 1 -100 4.00%

6SS-3 1 -150 0.00%

 

If we make the 1 call over the 1 opening showing our 5 card spade suit before the 6 card diamond, the opponents get in with 2 and we get the chance to pass partner's support double for a good score.

We followed this bad start with 3 middle boards, 2 flattish hands and an A- for playing in 3nt instead of 4M and picking the wrong finesse to try.

The next extreme board was our partner beating us to the 1NT opening:

Seems like a mostly normal auction to 4nt, and the opening heart lead gives us 4 tricks in hearts, and ducking a club gives us 3 club tricks, and the run of the suits puts the opponents under pressure.  The plan was going to be to try some sort of spade diamond squeeze on west (which works if played for), but the diamond pitches made that not needed.  Surprisingly +690 was good for 77.08%.

Here's the traveller:

6NN= 4 1440 93.75%

4NN+2 4 690 77.08%

4NN+1 7 660 52.08%

3NN+2 1 660 52.08%

4NN= 2 630 31.25%

3NN= 1 600 25.00%

6NN-1 6 -100 10.42%

I'm not surprised there are so many in 6NT as opposite a 1NT opener a 1NT bid is often wanting to be in slam.  But looks like only about a third of the field manages 12 tricks.  Looks like the problem is many people cash the diamond AK (and unblock the hearts) before losing a club, and now W knocks out the diamond entry and threat and the contract drifts down 1. Or people don't unblock the hearts, cash the AK of diamonds and clubs before losing the club 9, and now the spade K exit puts South in hand for the last time with the hearts still blocked.

The next hand is another good board for 12 tricks in NT game:

This time we open the NT, partner transfers us to spades and gives us COG, and our Tx of spades chooses 3nt.  We choose to duck the opening heart lead (even though this is quite likely to lose given computer lead tendencies), but this sets up up a second heart trick and when spades and diamonds behave with the spade Q onside we make 12 tricks.  We actually had 13 tricks available with the heart lead if we rose A and ran the diamonds and spades with E being squeezed for the last trick.  Still +690 is good for 79.17%.

Here's the traveller:

6NS= 2 990 97.92%

3NS+3 7 490 79.17%

3NS+2 3 460 58.33%

4NS= 1 430 39.58%

3NS+1 5 430 39.58%

3NS= 4 400 18.75%

6NS-1 1 -50 8.33%

6NS-2 1 -100 4.17%

6NS-3 1 -150 0.00%

Most of the field is in 3nt where it just comes down to the number of tricks you take, with no one managing all of them.  Some of those who took less tricks didn't attack spades but instead ducked the heart, then won the club then ran hearts and diamonds and then tried spades from the top.  Others did things like won the A and ran diamonds but then took the first spade hook, but not the second! Or rand diamonds without unblocking the hearts.  Some of the 6nt got off to the club lead as the auction had been 1-1-2 which told the computer to lead clubs.  Others got to 6nt through 1-1-2NT-3-3NT-6NT.

The next hand is an interesting best hand situation where we have 10 HCP but yet the opponents are freely bidding at the 5 level!

In normal bridge I'd be more likely to open this hand 1 than 2, although it is close, but here knowing that everyone must have exactly 10 hcp it seemed like a 2 by me might end the auction there in a good partial.  Reasonable reasoning, but not remotely accurate given the shapes on this hand.

The W robot bids a reasonable 3 with 8 solid diamond cards, even though this shows 14+ HCP by robot system.  My partner gives me the simple raise with a 10 count and AQ97 of trumps.  LHO makes the responsive double with 12 cards in the unbid suits and each opponent fights for the red suit to be trump and when it gets to the 5 level I decide that my KQx of hearts should make a X safe.  They can actually make 5, but 5X not so good for them with -2 and +500 being worth 95.83%.

Here's the full traveller:

5HEx-2 3 500 95.83%

5HE-3 3 300 83.33%

5HE-2 5 200 66.67%

5HE-1 1 100 54.17%

4SS-4 11 -400 29.17%

4SSx-2 1 -500 4.17%

4SSx-5 1 -1400 0.00%

If we open 1 the auction goes 1-4-4 and we play it there undoubled.  The other doubles are people who opened 2 but then competed to 4 over the 4 in our auction and with the freak shapes this doesn't do well for us.

The next board we got a below average for not competing to 4 over the opponents making 4 game.

Then we have a choice of rebids and some declarer play choices in 1NT:

Sometimes with opposite a passed hand with a weak hand like this I might open 1 planning to pass whatever partner bid, but here I made the book 1 opening bid.  Over partner's 1 call the robot likes to bid up the line, but I prefer to bid NT with balanced hands directly (with humans or robots) and do so here.  The opponents get off to the club lead, but after ducking on both sides E switches to S!A and another.  This might partially be again because of the avoidance of the spade rebid makes E "sure" that partner has 3-4 spade cards, or perhaps they just didn't want to pound on clubs.  On the run of the diamonds E pitches a heart and this makes me even more confident to try the hearts the correct way and 10 tricks and +180 is worth 82%.

Here's the traveller:

4HN+1 1 450 100.00%

1HN+4 3 200 92.00%

1NS+3 2 180 82.00%

1HN+3 2 170 74.00%

1NN+2 9 150 50.00%

1NS+2 1 150 50.00%

1NN+1 2 120 26.00%

P 2 0 18.00%

1NS-1 1 -50 8.00%

1NN-1 2 -50 8.00%

1NS-3 1 -150 0.00%

The 4 came about from raising the 1 to 2, for a top board, although just passing 1 was also a near top result.  When played from the N after the 1-1-1-1NT auction the defense cash 2 club tricks and then switch to diamond.  The NT going down from the S was caused by playing the T on the opening lead as this leads to the defense cashing 4 club tricks, and then on the spade A and exit these folks didn't finesse in hearts and went down.  Same thing for the NT down from the N, after 2 clubs and a diamond switch they played hearts for the drop and when they lost the third round of hearts the defenders ran the remaining clubs and spade A for down 1.

The next board just barely meets our score requirements for a common 4 game contract that didn't always succeed:

N/S +620
13

On the opening heart lead I realize that we have 10 tricks if hearts split 2-2 based on pulling trump and then cross ruffing the minors.  If trumps don't split, we can likely still try the same line and come to 10 tricks so that is what I try.  On the cross ruff we actually ruff our good diamond.  We could have pitched a club or spade on that, but then when E gets in with a top spade they can play trumps so very likely to come to the same 10 tricks from that approach.  +620 is worth 76% on this hand.

Here is the traveller:

4HS+1 1 650 100.00%

4HS= 11 620 76.00%

1NE-2 2 200 50.00%

4HS-1 11 -100 22.00%

3NS-1 1 -100 22.00%

The one person making 11 tricks took my line but when the T became high they switched to pulling trump, ruffing a club, cashing the T and on this W pitches the K to keep the QJT and E ends up with the AK and a club and S gets the Q with the 13th trick.  The people who went down took the losing club finesse.

We get a good board that just misses our score requirements for down 1 in 3nt when most are down more.

Then an excellent board for defending against the opponents on the following board:

We balance in with the balancing hand 1NT red versus white, and the opponents get up to 3, where we let them play it.  We get partner his diamond ruffs, and collect +150 and 92%.

Here's the traveller:

3NS= 2 600 98.00%

3CE-3 1 150 92.00%

3HN= 1 140 88.00%

3CE-2 2 100 82.00%

3HN-3 2 -300 28.00%

3NS-3 2 -300 28.00%

4HN-4 1 -400 0.00%

If people balance with 2 or X instead they end up in 3 or 4 depending on the rest of the auction, neither of which is good for us, or 3NT which does in fact have 9 tricks available for the true top spot.

Next we have a possible slam hand over a drury auction:

Over the drury bid, the robots have 4 as a void showing splinter, and that seemed to fit our hand with this 15 count with extra spade length.  Despite the wasted KJ of hearts partner cued the club A and over my diamond cue bid the slam.  With both black suits splitting, 12 tricks was easy and +1430 was worth 93.75%.

Here's the traveller:

6SS= 4 1430 93.75%

4SS+2 14 680 52.08%

5SS+1 2 680 52.08%

5CN+1 1 620 8.33%

2SS+4 1 230 4.17%

6SS-1 1 -100 0.00%

Some of the 4 just opened 4, and some of the 5 did explore but ended up keycarding without showing the void and then weren't sure given the 2 key cards missing if one of them was in or not.  The 6 down was a misclick when the opening lead was a diamond to the A and trick 2 was the T, maybe thinking of ruffing a diamond early but getting a trick ahead?

Next was a stone cold 0% bottom when I opened a hand that most passed out, and the proceeded to try unsuccessfully to set a doubled part score:

The opening is clearly a little questionable given only 4 hearts and 11 hcp, but with the 11 hcp meaning the other players are between 7-11 and with everyone being white I thought bidding might make sense, and my AKT9 seemed like a good suit to show.  If the opponents had let us play 1NT everything would have been great, but the 2 balance brings the X by my partner.  I was a little confused by the explanation of the X which is "Takeout double - 1- ; 3- ; 10+ hcp; biddable clubs; 12- total points".  I thought the biddable clubs, and partner having 4 cards at most in the majors (I thought) meant I'd be getting at least 3 or maybe 4 clubs opposite and that pass was clear.  But when partner doesn't have what I expect (and hey, I don't have what I showed either) 2 now makes, and -180 was 0%.

Here's the traveller:

P 19 0 62.50%

2NN-1 3 -50 14.58%

2HN-1 1 -50 14.58%

3NS-2 1 -100 4.17%

2CWx= 1 -180 0.00%

Clearly passed out is the normal result and everyone who bid ended up in trouble.  -90 was near a bottom so the X didn't cost much, although if we could have got out in 2 red or 2NT for -1 that would have been a little better, and going plus in anything would have been great.

Another board with a good score for being in the right contract and taking the full tricks:

When we open 1NT, W shows the unknown single suit, partner transfers and bids clubs and we go to game.  W decides to lead the spade A instead of the stiff club and now we have 12 tricks when our ruff of the 3rd round of spades holds.  +680 is 94%.

Here's the traveller:

4HS+2 4 680 94.00%

4HN+1 1 650 68.00%

4HS+1 8 650 68.00%

4HS= 7 620 36.00%

3DW-2 2 100 18.00%

3DW-1 3 50 8.00%

4HS-1 1 -100 0.00%

The most common result is 4 making fewer tricks when declarers pull trumps fully instead of trying for the spade ruff, and those with only 10 tricks also play the clubs wrong.

The next board was a good one for competing to a 4-3 2 contract in competition and finding an overtrick.

Then came a completely undeserved top for me.  I was playing this set when pretty tired, as evidence by this board and a few others coming up, and I mis-counted my hand and thought I had 12 hcp, and had decided all white in 3rd that I'd bid 1 (weaker 3 card minor) and pass whatever partner bid.  I actually had a 16 count, not a 12 count, our RHO who has a 16 count overcalls 1NT, and our partner raises to 2 and we play it there in our minor 4-3 fit, splitting 5-1 against, as shown below:

They are supposed to set us 1, but I finally get W to lead a club away from the Q to score the J and 8 tricks, +90 and 100%.

Here's the traveller:

2DS= 1 90 100.00%

2SE-1 1 50 95.83%

2SE= 23 -110 45.83%

I didn't notice this at the time, and thought it must have been a horrible board, but actually if we open 1NT as we should and get the penalty double they find their way to 2 which makes and is -110 us so our +90 was 100% and even -50 would have been an excellent score.

Next is a hand where there is a big extra payout to right siding the NT game, and also to playing it accurately:

It might be borderline to upgrade a 14 count into 1NT with an AQ9xx side suit, but good controls and honors working together I decided to do it, and then we ended up in an easy auction to 3nt.  W led hearts which solved the K for us, and the friendly club situation complete with no cover of the first club meant we had 10 sure tricks.  If we played all out we could have scored 11 tricks by playing for the A onside, but given no clues in the bidding, and given the risk if that was wrong, we took our 10 sure tricks.

Here's the traveller:

3NN+1 2 630 93.75%

3NS+1 2 630 93.75%

3NN= 3 600 79.17%

3NN-1 11 -100 50.00%

3NN-2 6 -200 14.58%

3NN-5 1 -500 0.00%

Some people wrongsiding it were still able to find the 10 tricks, but several found only 9 and most went down.  In some auctions W gets in with a 2 bid, and now E leads a spade, which gives the K a trick, but makes E now cover the clubs and the 5 club tricks aren't found or even worse declarer plays low club to the Q and now things are even worse.

This was followed by a couple of good boards on defense for not conceding extra tricks in a making opp game and then setting an opps part score hand, Then an average board for 6 with 14 top tricks.  Then a quite bad board for 3 making 5 when we pass with Qxx K 9xxxx AK9x when our partner balances with 3 over RHO's 2 red/white 1st chair preempt. A very bad board for 2 making 10 tricks when partner passes our 1 opening when we have a 5062 13 count (partner bids 2 over RHO balancing 1 and our 1 call, but we can't picture a pass of 1 making 4= that likely).

The last board is a bottom quartile result when we get aggressive and get involved in the auction when without us they get to a failing heart game on the following:

We double the 1-forcing NT auction with our 13 count and 4 spades, 4 diamonds, but only Qx in clubs.  This works out badly when partner overcompetes to 3 with 4 hcp and T9xxxx of clubs.  They could quite easily set us 2 tricks, but we get out for down one, but -50 is just 20.83%.

Here is the traveller:

4HW-3 1 150 100.00%

4HW-2 11 100 75.00%

4HW-1 6 50 39.58%

3CN-1 3 -50 20.83%

3CN-2 1 -100 12.50%

4SN-3 1 -150 8.33%

4SN-4 1 -200 4.17%

4SSx-4 1 -800 0.00%

You can see from the above that passing and letting them get too high in hearts was the more common, and better scoring, result.

So overall on the second day we finished around in 1 hour 19 minutes finishing around 2:16 am.  Our provisional score was around 65.9%, but as like with the first session, we fell significantly as the later results came in, and ended up with 62.21% which was 148 out of 2559 players.

If you break down the boards into quartiles I had:

10 greater than or equal to 75% up to 100%

7  greater than or equal to 50% but less than 75%

4 greater than or equal to 25% but less than 50%

3 greater than or equal to 0% but less than 25%

13 of which I covered here.

Dividing in to quintiles instead I had:

7 greater than or equal to 80% up to 100%

7 greater than or equal to 60% but less than 80%

3 greater than or equal to 40% but less than 60%

6 greater than or equal to 20% but less than 40%

1 greater than or equal to 0% but less than 20%

So again, not quite the round I was hoping for, especially when you consider the completely undeserved good result for 2=, and I definitely felt a little tired at the end of this one.  But still on track for the same strategy, just hopefully with fewer mistakes.
