No more whining. Though my opponents did when this game was finished. I really got away with murder, me carrying a bloody knife on the scene of the crime. Anyone call CSI and NCIS?
After pass – 3 it’s my turn. Lots of ugly, ugly points, but with a very good suit. I cannot bid 4 because of Leaping Michaels’ and I’m looking at way too many losers for 5. No, the bare King of didn’t stop me in bidding 3NT, partner surely has something that combines into a stopper (I pray a little).
Lefty kicks off with the Ten. This is the full layout:
East ducked the lead and when the broke 2-2 I claimed the fastest nine tricks ever. East shrieked in agony that from a doubleton West should always lead the lower one and some foul language crosses the table. I wipe a little sweat from my forehead and write +600.
