Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
The Pros have no idea
You're missing the point. 6D making 7 is a reasonable result. 3NT making 5, 6, or 7 is not - but that's what happens at clubs. The pros writing the analysis don't seem to realize how often this happens. This was just one hand, most of the rest ...
