Thank you Richard Pavlicek!

Yesterday, my partner and I agreed to play Richard Pavlicek's methods for raises to five of the agreed major, including 5NT to accept a slam try with Kx(x) in the suit in which partner is asking for a control. (The topic was discussed at length in another post.) In my last email I said, "Now that we’ve talked about it, there’s no chance it will ever come up."

In today's Nashua, New Hampshire sectional open pairs, this hand came up:

6NT making was worth 16.97 out of 17 matchpoints. As the cards lay, it would have made from either side but it was the highlight of the day.
