I found this shiftproblem quite intresting. Partner had xxx, Axx, Axx, T8xx and false-carded in trick 1 so I could find The shift. Too bad it was a speedball so I didn't have time to analyse the whole hand fast enough. But my spadeshift resulted with +200 anyway since declerer couldn't reach A :)

I can only speak for my friend who told me this after the incident. The story was like:
Lotan were about to go to the bathroom. When he was standing, Hult asked him if he could leave his phone which was visible through his pocket. Lotan than slammed The phone on The table and were sort of screamimg At Hult “IS THIS OKAY? YOU WANT TO SEE IF IT'S TURNED ON ALSO?”. Hult was chocked and said “no, just leave it”. Lotan then responded something like “If you ever say something like this again, I will make sure this will be The last time you're sitting At The bridgetable”.

Huge congratz to the whole Nickell team!

But i'm really curious though. Steve, what was your thought when passing on 7D? If I was playing with myself that would show first round controll but not sure how you thought. My dad guessed you used your professional pokerface because you “knew” you were down by an X amount of IMPs. Who knows? :)

Again, congratz and hope you had a huge party after this exciting tourney!

Great article!
Intresting to read how you'd act in different positions/vuls. My question is: how would you act on the hand you had KQJxxxx, x, xx, xxx in 3rd seat Vul/NV and would you bid different if it were IMPs/MPs? Since KQJxxxx is basically the worst preemptive hand you could get since it's rarely 1 trick in that suit.

With the hand Henry refering to i'd respond 3D instead of 2D. Especially when partner resond 1H. But on topic i do understand 4D bid since 3NT could be all between 11-16(17) and possibly brings an honour in diamonds.
