Them Vibes

Hi all

It seems everything is working fine again, and I have lots of stories to tell. So check back often. Tuesday at Star I played with Martin. I have to start with some apologies, I can count something like fifteen solid tricks during the bidding, but I miscount an Ace. No score for 6NT (back to primary school?).

We ended up in 4 and I know what’s technically correct. Go for the drop. But it was an opportunity for gallery play and I had good vibes at the table. So I played the Queen from hand and success was mine, East had a bare Jack of . Yay!

Some more vibes.

I open with a 11-14 NT (though it’s a little too strong for that) and Martin transfers to . Not unhappy. But now Martin jumps to the game, according to our agreements this is mildly slam invitational (other hands go through Texas). Well, I definitely have extras so I cuebid 5 and Martin finishes off with 6.

I ruff out the for 12 tricks. I was a bit surprised we were not alone on this one, but still happy with the 80something%.
