Any well-oiled partnership should easily survive this deal as both 2 and Dbl should lead to a 2 contract (or 3–the opps might bid 3). North held:

J10xx
Axxx
KJ
AKx

As mentioned above by Martin, the quackfest won't provide much defence, but it's right on shape. 2 must be two places to play.

At the table North thought South's Dbl was penalty, so North passed for the rare doubled contract making with not one, not two, but three uptricks. :)

After South's 4 cuebid, do you cue 4?

There is a case for the 7, but I opt for the queen. :)

So it is true: sometimes bridge players talk about the whether.

Feel free to answer the question based on your partnership agreements. Happy to learn from practiced partnerships.

The 2NT intervenor held

So by putting him on lead against 7 you make.

Opener held

A


7 goes down with the 4-0 break; 7 by Opener goes down on a spade ruff, perhaps doubled.

Jan, instead of Dutch Spiral, how about J.A.N.S.M.A.?

= Just another natural, simple, meticulous agreement.

As it turns out this is what both Souths did in the match for a push board at +920.. Good ol' partner put down the spade ace.

I think in a Bridge World type forum, yes all the contributors need to know the system. But here on Bridgewinners, I think problems are posted to see what contributors would do with their system. And let the conversation begin since there is a lot of space.

The Richards are onto something! 6NT is the best spot. 6H makes on a 3-2 heart split, but alas, they were 4-2.

@Richard S.: This hand arose in a local club game. I was playing with a top Canadian player and multi-NABC champion. We play once every 7 or 8 years. So a lot was undiscussed.

@Richard F.: You replicated partner's exact holding! The diamonds were actually better: J10. 7S can make on a non-diamond lead as spades were ultra-friendly–3-3 with the jack onside.

Being a club game only two pairs got to slam; one bid to 6NT and your unlucky heroes got to the no-play 6H.

Partner's shape is 3=0=3=7, so you would get 3 showing three spades.

The cast of the 1950 Billy Wilder film ‘Sunset Boulevard’ featured:

Buster Keaton as himself (bridge player)
Anna Q. Nilsson as herself (bridge player)
H. B. Warner as himself (bridge player)

But I hear there was a plot and other characters…
