Board 26 From Tuesday, November 10 Common Game 

There was a break in tempo of 10-20 seconds by West after the 1NT opening bid.

The table result was 2 down 1. The director, after consultation with me, changed the result to 1NT making 2. I ran a poll to check to see if Pass was a logical alternative. By a 3-1 margin pass is clearly a logical alternative. However I am concerned that the auction tells us that partner has 11+ points. I am not sure that the hesitation provides any additional information beyond what is already authorized.

Furthermore, does the hesitation suggest bidding 2? If partner has 11+ HCP, wanted to act, and did not, that may suggest a 1-3-4-5 shape.

 

If the result should be changed there is also a chance that South might make 9 tricks.

Adjust the result to 1NT making 2
Adjust the Result to 1NT making 3
Leave the table result of 2 down 1
