Showing the Two of Spades
(Page of 2)

I have been working on a project.  As a consequence of some of the work, I have found some interesting hands. I am going to show you some of these hands, all of which occured in top-level competition.

Today, and for eleven subsequent days, I will present a hand as a problem and you can choose your preferred action. 

On the following page will be partner's hand, the action chosen at the table, and a link to a Bridge Winners poll* for that problem

On the thirteenth day, you will get, not one, but TWO problems: Opening leads to the same contract, by the same player, at the same world championship.

These problems are in no particular order.

 

Here is today's problem.

You are playing in the final of a World Teams Championship.

* Some BW members have grumbled about these polls, finding them to be silly.  Well, all will be revealed soon.

At the table, South passed.

The opener backed in with 2, passed around to South, who bid 2.

Here is the link to the Bridge Winners poll:

For interest, here is a choice of call faced by the same player, in the same partnership, also in a World Teams Championship final.
