What is the Worst Thing You Done To Partner? (Humour expected)
(Page of 2)

Forgive me partner, for I have sinned.

 

All vul, I held this whopper.....

 

J10xx  xxxx  xxxx  x

 

I passed and then, Rod Sterling would be proud...

 

Me      LHO    Part       RHO

P          1S       2C        Dble*

P          2H       3C%     Dble

Rdble!    all pass

*Dble of 2C Not alerted, card said no negative double, and tone confirmed penalty

 % 3C  are you kidding me? Doubled for penalty at the 2 level and you bid freely to the 3 level?

! Rdble, this is my sin. I admit I was so relieved when my opponent pulled the PENALTY double (and volume and tone confirmed the cc) . 

To hear 3C sent me into shock, wouldn't you be?  And out of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) my redouble was petty, vindictive, stupid, egostistical, punitive and disrespectful. (If I missed any adjectives, I apologize.) 

Back to the Twilight Zone. 

Partner held Axx x x AKQJ9xxx

She started with nine guaranteed tricks, or so it appeared.

The opening lead was a heart to the ace. Followed by a switch to the KS. 

Her AS was ruffed!  

LHO tried to cash the KH. Partner ruffed. Drew trumps, and her xx in spades, opposite my J10X built into her ninth trick! (8 clubs and a spade) 

I was stunned. Mute. Delirious and still in ever more traumatic shock. Calling my doctor, perhaps psychiatrist. 

Then, my partner turned to me and inquired....

How could you have such confidence? ROFL.....doc see me know. 

 

 

To recap.

I hold: 

J10xx xxxx xxxx x

I passed and then, Rod Sterling would be proud...

Me LHO Part RHO

P 1S 2C Dble*

P 2H 3C% Dble

Rdble! all pass

*Dble of 2C Not alerted, card said no negative double, and tone confirmed penalty

% 3C are you kidding me? Doubled for penalty at the 2 level and you bid freely to the 3 level?

I confess, I never imagined in my wildest dreams she would make 3c**.

I expected -1100 X 2 = -2200. 

I laughed. And confessed. I wanted to show you what -2200 looked like. I apologize. 

She laughed, and we are still friends. 

She was Sharon (then Cleary), now Jabbour, and Sharon I do apologize. And I am glad you imagined my vote of confidence.

 

I promise, will have it ever after with you.

:)

Forgive me, as I have sinned.
