The back of Wes Parker’s 1970 baseball card said he was an excellent bridge player-or something to that effect.

A low heart at trick two isolates the heart threat.

Side note-this was one of two hands where one team bid a grand, and the other stopped in game.

If 5NT is not. GSF here, then you don’t play GSF.

I heard stories of attempts to bid at the 8 level some 40 + years ago. Details are lost to, but I do remember that it was not allowed. As I remember the story, it involved some of the biggest names in Bridge.

You are there, and I am not-and with good reason on both counts. That said, 5NT strikes me as a standout bid over 4H, or even 3H. Once you bid 4NT, you are left with a guess that you could have avoided.

So partners was willing to defend 6H until you said they could not make it. Strange.

I ruffed the heart, cashed the ace of clubs, AK of D, and claimed down 1. I think opener was 5-5-3-0.

For the result merchant, 7C yields -50. Pass -or double- gets you 1100. Partner’s hand-

Clubs were 3-0 offside. Grand needs 2-1 clubs with diamonds no worse than 4-2.

Schedule. I despise the 10 and 3 start times. City and cost are factors.

No weak two. Don’t know which hand is the short spade hand. Plus you run risk of losing to stiff honor.
