Some Dombo butler night a while ago I played with Frank. Here’s my hand together with the auction.
1. Unbalanced, 4+
I had extras after Frank’s 2 signoff, so I invited for game with 2NT. I expected Frank’s 3 (master!)bid to be a maximum with a good three card fit, and no large (and wasted) values in the round suits. With those values he would certainly opt for 3NT. I had a very easy raise to 4. There was no real play to it, so I’ll show you the full diagram.
There are a couple of things I like about this game. I don’t bid to a Moysian fit voluntarily that often. On the lead I drew two rounds of trumps before taking the finesse in and I didn’t care if it would win or lose. Dummy’s trump protects me against a attack so I could safely develop my side suit. Of course it gained us zilch, for the Queen of was onside all the time, so 3NT … yawn …
