Flush

Hi all

I have been describing too many disasters lately, time for a small success: another deal from the GNT qualifiers. I pulled a fat rabbit out of a hat on my RHO. I could hardly suppress my chuckle over it.

Sitting South I opened a 11-14 NT and got to play there. My LHO puts down an unbid extended Royal Straight Flush in . So after six tricks I’ve discarded to this position:

By now East has discarded a card in every other suit. I don’t know why West didn’t bid those , but I’m going to play East for the remaining face cards. West exits with a small for dummy’s Ace and East drops the Queen.

I cross to my Ace and play Ace [ 2 in dummy]. King [ 9 in dummy], and I overtake my Jack with the Queen. Two cards remaining. I ask for the 4 and East hasn’t paid attention to who played the 3!

After a sweaty and embarrassing pause he lets go of the King (keeping the King), I overtake the 4 with the 5 and score my 7th trick with my top .
