In the World Open Teams Round of 32, board 20 (the second board #20) was very interesting. I watched someone play 5 with the North hand, making (slowly) on a squeeze. I checked how things went at the other vugraph tables:

 

Of the 12 tables, most played the same way. Helness and Bilde tried to crossruff and went down. Nowosadzki and Zawada were about to squeeze for five but, both in partials, just claimed making four!

 

Which is the better line in 5 at IMPs? Some pretty strong players played differently. after pretty much the same start.

Play for a crossruff:

I didn't get all the auctions (I think they were all distinct!) but if 2 shows the majors, the squeeze looks best.
