BBO - the place to watch!
21-November-2018I went over to watch my good friend Gail Cameron of Zimbabwe play a teams match, where there were > 100 kibitzers.
I looked at the MOVIE of previous hands played in the match and found this cutieBd: 3 Dlr: South Vul: EW North S 3 H K1083 D 76432 C 742 West East S AJ8 S Q96 H 654 H 972 D AK105 D QJ8 C A103 C K986 South S K107542 H AQJ D 9 C QJ5 Open Room: Closed Room: West North East South West North East South blou1 ggokce absho 01sa peyret HristoN ErbiI dancho6 1S 1S Pass Pass Pass 1NT Pass 3NT Pass Pass Pass Trick 1: DA D2 DQ D9 Trick 2: D5 D6 DJ S2 Trick 1: D3 DQ D9 D5 Trick 3: HA H4 H3 H7 Trick 2: SQ SK SA S3 Trick 4: HJ H5 HK H2 Trick 3: DT D2 DJ S5 Trick 5: S3 S6 S7 S8 Trick 4: S9 S4 S8 C4 Trick 6: H6 H8 H9 HQ Trick 5: D8 S2 DK D4 Trick 7: S5 SJ D3 SQ Trick 6: DA D6 H2 S7 Trick 8: C8 CQ CA C2 Trick 7: SJ C2 S6 ST Trick 9: DK D4 D8 S4 Trick 8: CA C7 C6 C5 Trick 10: SK SA HT S9 Trick 9: CT H3 CK CJ Trick 11: DT D7 C6 ST Trick 12: CJ C3 C4 CK 9 Tricks Claimed +600.

In Room 2 (3NT) notice the play of the SQ at trick 2? This takes care of North holding the stiff 10.
Just a small precaution.
What is curious is that Gail, usually aggressive, passed 1S as West!
Final result? Gail's team won the match of 16 boards, so there!
Gail's team picked up a huge +17 IMP swing on the penultimate hand - enjoy!Bd: 15 Dlr: South Vul: NS North S A72 H AKQ102 D J93 C 75 West East S KQ983 S J10654 H 9 H J74 D A108 D 7 C K643 C AQJ9 South S H 8653 D KQ6542 C 1082 Open Room: Closed Room: West North East South West North East South blou1 ggokce absho 01sa peyret HristoN ErbiI dancho6 Pass Pass 1S 2H 4S 5H 1S 1NT 4D* Dbl *splinter Pass Pass Dbl Pass 4H Dbl 4S Pass Pass Pass Pass Dbl Pass Pass Rdbl 5D Pass Pass Trick 1: D7 D2 DA DJ Dbl Pass Pass Pass Trick 2: D8 D3 H4 D4 Trick 3: CA C2 C3 C5 Trick 1: S4 C2 SQ SA Trick 4: CJ C8 CK C7 Trick 2: D3 D7 DK DA Trick 5: DT D9 H7 D5 Trick 3: H9 HA H7 H3 Trick 6: CQ CT C4 H2 Trick 7: HA HJ H3 H9 11 Tricks Claimed +750.
