BBO - the place to watch!

21-November-2018

I 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 cutie

6 Tricks Claimed -50.

11 IMPs to team Big Sadi Club.

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!
