Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What do you call a 9-card suit?
Reminds me of a hand where the only use for an eight card spade suit was as a stopper for no trumps. Spades broke badly so 4 could not be made but partner had nine tricks outside of spades and 3NT could be made. There were three losers in ...
