You are called to the table to make after a long hesitation.
A flight C pair has this auction:
3C – P – 5C – P – 6C.
The 5C bidder takes some time to make a call. During the period of thinking, the not unusual thinking and sighing occurs – then the final 5C bid.
The opponents agree to the long thought.
Opening leader leads the ace of diamonds – and soon, 7 is scored up.
Opener had: Kx, Kxx, none, KQ10xxxxx. Dummy was: AQJxxx, Axxx, QJ, A.
