Favorite Bridge Memory
Making 6HX-6 for -1400 at a Year End Congress. My partner was declaring, but it was very much me who got us there.

Missed (Grand) Slam
John, I don't see anyone suggesting anywhere that E should quantitative. And I don't see even you thinking that W can count 13 tricks after 2-2-2NT. So I think you may have misread a couple of comments.

It can be held to 8. Will it? A club lead from W is the obvious route to the 9th trick, but it's easy to see other ways as well. Cashing the spade honours at the wrong time (too slow or too soon) certainly does it.

ATF, no not THAT ATF. Assess the futility.
Futile? Hardly. So long as they don't lead spades - or lead spades and switch - you just need to play clubs and diamonds for no losers. That's better than 50% in clubs, and... some in diamonds. All I'm saying is that you should look at the positives.
Delayed action after the opponent's preempt
Eric, with a good 6+ spades but a weak hand, are you suggesting 4S direct shows this hand?
Tis the season to be jolly
