In the 2nd session of the BAM last night I find myself playing a tricky 3 x'd in about the 9th round:

 

North
QJ10xx
KQ
xxx
KQx
South
J10xxx
KQx
A109xx

North
QJ10xx
KQ

KQx
South
J10xxx
KQx
A109xx

 

I wont bore you with the play (trumps railed 5-1 but they didn't establish the tap so I made it) but midway through the hand a giant cloud of cannabis comes wafting into the playing area.

 

[i]....ah the sights, sounds and [b]smells[/b] of the Golden State [/i]

The next round we sit down against Claude and George. I announce our Transfers over 1

 

George announces he plays with Claude. I ask if that should be pre-alerted. George says "on some nights".

I look down at 

East
10xx
A10x
J108xx
AQ

 

And see:

 

W
N
E
S
1
X

?

I decide to go low with 1N. Maybe they will overcompete and we can collect a nice number. But I'm the one getting x'd in 1N.

Partner, what kind of crazy call is double? He appears to be OK. 

[i] uh oh... I ask for a review [/i]

1 - PASS - 1......

Claude leads a club and grabs his K too quickly so I'm only -500 for a sure loss. Sorry partner.

So when Michael Rosenberg discusses 'blackouts' during a claim, I can suddenly relate.

 

Of course, in Northern California they do have an ample supply of weed.

 

After the session, I had a very large burrito. I suggest Colima's in North Park. Its open until 3AM.
