It's likely to be played by South. Unfortunately west might lead the Jack of spades, blocking the suit.

I did badly on this board. Same auction to 3S. I doubled again with the south cards feeling that we had a fit whatever partner bid. But it's too much. Let them play at the 3-level. I quite like playing 2H as non-forcing but we don't play that. Partner was very kind not to comment on my terrible double!

At our table it went 2 passes to me and I opened 1D. I think our advanced robot passed and partner bid 1NT. What now? I bid 3NT hoping that showed a long minor plus outside control. Nothing seems ideal.3NT is a bit of a gamble. 5D much better contract. 2C will often wrong side the contract but on this hand, I would rather have north play the hand. There's nothing really to protect in my hand.

I was horrified at first but I too have laughed a lot! It's a bit of a shame I hadn't looked deeper into the hand before I posted but I was more excited at the time that I'd worked out how to upload the hand! Email under construction.

Can 3NT makes on this hand (N/S)? More interesting hand than I had originally realised!

I did mean to post it but it was to be uploaded to a private forum called “Team Australia”. So I was supposed to “Post an Article” not “Create an Article”. I've learned my lesson.

Wow yes I can see that now. Rodwell Duboin and I are way too conservative! I couldn't work out how to get into the bidding.The play in 3NT is interesting if they don't lead a spade. If they do lead a spade, 3nt doesn't have much hope. On a diamond lead, you can probably make! 3 diamonds, 5 clubs and an endplay but discarding could be a problem. Making 8 tricks is still a potential pickup against 2S which is unbeatable. IT'S A BIDDERS GAME

Sorry this was not supposed to be for public display. I guess I still have to learn a bit more about how this works!

Hi Kate. Board 14 was written up by Helene Pitt not me. I don't suppose it matters much!
