Some hands from the 4th quarter Trials, round of 8
(Page of 3)

I really admire Billy Cohen's choice to swing by not bidding Stayman even though he was 4-4 in the majors when down about 30 imps. The hand is pretty soft and it looks like a reasonable shot. It won him 10 imps when a spade honor was led at his table and 4 spades went down on the bad break at the other table.
