Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Board 12 - 20 August
Spade King makes it easy. However, high-low was referring to the trump suit - given North is out of spades, then the suit preference must be between clubs and diamonds, so high-low = diamonds whereas low-high equates to clubs.

I don't mind Michaels with a 6-5 when the 6 card Major is weak. I would bid 2H if the 6 card heart suit was the 'dominant' suit in the hand, but it isn't here. I bid a free 4H as North, so it was plausible to look ...

I like the 'out of the blue' double when you've shown a 2-suiter - showing a void in the 3rd suit. However, I'd tend to go for that when partner is on lead, rather then when I'm on lead - lack of re-entries being the problem for 2 ruffs ...

Yes Kate - that makes sense and I even considered 2S for the same reason. I'm now just consistent with bidding the cheapest - as it happens, Candice would have raised spades to 3S...
Board 12 - 20 August
This is also an interesting hand on a diamond lead to South's Ace. Say South switches to the SK - West actually has to duck one round. IF West wins the SA, then North has to unblock the SJ in the hope that South holds K-Q-9 - in order to unblock ...

This is the 'twin' to the other hand with the Precision 2C opening bid (potentially). As North, I was a little luckier in that I was responding to a double of a 2D opening bid, and responded 2H. That had 8 tricks including the diamond ruff - despite a 6-0 break ...
Board 4, 20th August
I think a Precision 2C bid will give more information than the silence of our East-West, so 4S has more prospect for picking spades etc. It's interesting to answer your question - sometimes 2S is correct and sometimes double is correct. (On the 3D opening, on another board, doubling wasn ...
Board 4, 20th August
If partner is only 6-9, there are an awful lot of gaps to fill for game to make though. If partner has SAQ, there's absolutely not way that can cover all my losers. If partner has SQ, there's much better prospects. Even so, I would like to have ...
Board 4, 20th August
I've already acknowledged that experience with an earlier set of these hands. I even played one set twice as North - and the auctions were so very different I only recognised 2 hands! Even then, I bid them very honestly and had totally different auctions.
Board 5, 20 August: 2007 Bermuda Bowl - USA! vs Norway
I managed to give Candice a diamond ruff after her Michaels (I think leading a high heart should show the void in diamonds, and the H3 should show a void in clubs (unlikely on this hand) - if the minor is unknown. Sadly, she had a 6-5 not a 5-5-3-0 - so ...
