Welcome to my “quiet Berkeley neighborhood”. Last night an explosion rocked the street (KTVU). Bomb disposal team & hazardous material specialists running rampant but there’s no official statement on what happened just two houses from my bed. Time for some speculation I guess…
I have a deal for you too, from Santa Cruz.
Greg heard me open 1 and this was the auction:
1. GF relay
2. Maximum (14-15 HCP), 5-5
6. Two of the same color
7. Not enough for slam
Greg looked at a unavoidable loser and he wasn’t particularly happy with the trump situation so he passed at game level. I can confess I was a bit scared when he passed my 4 answer. I had no idea what was going on.
Of course the trumps came tumbling down so twelve tricks where easy. At the other table our teammates witnessed an enthusiastic North bidding slam on his own. Lose thirteen. Meh!
