Hi all

Last Saturday I was the Methusalem in a team that for the rest consisted of junior players. As you can see, I still haven’t lost my skills in frivolous bidding. Antony cooperated joyfully.

This was the auction from my point of view:

1. Of course this is by no means a vulnerable opening, you have an impossible rebid over the expected 1 by partner
2. 4th suit forcing
3. Asking for half a stopper/more information

I thought my hand improved during the bidding, partner doesn’t seem to have any wastage in opposite my void. I was more than a tad off, for this was the deal.

Antony felt my slight distress and discomfort at the table and waved his right hand towards West like a true Obi Wan. “You will not find the killing lead.”

Well, it worked out better than expected when West found the single lead for us to make it: the Ace of .

Antony ruffed, ruffed a in dummy, took three pitches on dummy’s and cross ruffed the rest of the tricks.

One thought on “Kenobi

  1. I’ve found that if you really want to open that 0/4/4/5 hand, you can pretty safely open 1 and rebid 2 (even playing standard or 2/1, not precision).
