Leaping Michaels’

Hi all

Last Tuesday wasn’t a rich day. René cancelled because of the flu, so I played with Martin. But it wasn’t a good day for both of us. I had full values and good spots for a vulnerable Muiderberg, but the opponents grabbed hold of me for -800. A couple more disasters: -500 against triggerhappy opponents in some partscore, -1100 because I thought our run-away-system didn’t apply. All disasters were quite expensive, especially when it’s imps. Here’s a nice one, it still makes me smile.

East preempted 3 and I had a very, very clean Leaping Michaels’ with 4, West raised to 4 and Martin bid the game. West pondered for some time and eventually bid 5, doubled by Martin. East immediately commented West: “Heb je de kwetsbaarheid gezien? Rukker!”. It’s near impossible to translate, maybe something like: “Did you check the vulnerability? Wanker!”. I wet myself from laughter.

Actually bidding 5 won them two imp, because West’s other option was to double 5, and that would’ve been -550.
