Board 28: 12th Feb - 2011 Netherlands vs Italy
It looks like 4S made 10 tricks and there is no way to beat it. Good point about ducking the club Ace, just in case... Not an exciting hand...
Board 23, 12 February
This is not an easy slam to reach in Standard methods... The East hand is very powerful - worth closer to 22 than 21 if you like to put a point value on it. After a transfer to spades it grows very large indeed. All primes, 4 trumps, ruffing value - a ...

A good instinct, I think. I'm hoping to find someone who DID bid to see how it worked out.
Board 22, 12 Feb, 2011 Bermuda Bowl Italy vs Netherlands
Did anyone bid over 1C with the North hand? Did anyone WANT to bid?

It does look like EW should reach 3NT - a good contract. Would your partnerships get there?
