Deep Water

Hi all

My brother got me a nice present this week. He registered and forwarded the .com domain for my site: www.vikingsinspace.com. So now I won’t have to explain anymore where the .nl comes from. And it gives my site some global allure, don’t you agree?

Here’s some deep water experiment in Piedmont.

1. Responsive
2. Showing a good hand

Geoff propelled himself to a fairly high contract. Now how to scramble together eleven tricks?

He ruffed the second round of and played a to the King and Ace. The third he ruffed again in his hand, and now he was at a crossroads. Establish dummy’s or his own ? The answer lies in the quality of the suit. Where the have to split 3-3 to set up the suit, the may split 4-2 too as long as the Queen resides in the doubleton. Both routes require a friendly trump split.

This was the full deal:

It was a little fortunate that the Queen came tumbling down. Geoff was on the right track, though, entering a dummy reversal for eleven tricks.
