A five club contract.

Dlr: W
Vul: N/S

















I sat south, and West opened proceedings with TWO HEARTS. Partner made an offshape double, and East bumped to THREE HEARTS. I now bid FIVE CLUBS in agricultural fashion.

West Cashed the HA, and obligingly, shifted to SA and a spade. I drew trump in three rounds, played yet another trump, and played DK, DQ, and ublocked D8 to DA, and led the HQ from the table. East played low smoothly, and I took a discard of a spade (if covered, the ruffing finesse would establish HJ, and a small preserved diamond to the seven is the entry at trick twelve.). I was home when this held.

Five Clubs bid and made was good for a 80 something board at MPs.

Welcome to Ramesh's BRIDGE BLOG

In these pages, I comment on hands from Bridge Base Online ACBL tourneys. I play in these with a variety of partners with different degrees of skill. I might present a hand or two from my collection of bridge books, every now and then. I am more interested in play and defense than in complex bidding systems, but I do follow the cut and thrust of Vanderbilt and World Championship Vugraph and try to keep abreast of expert practice in the obstructive and constructive bidding system department. I may also feature, newspaper-style, famous hands from important matches that I saw on Vugraph.

NOTE: For JUNE, I am experimenting with adding BBO's Handviewers, which make bridge movies embedded. Just
scroll down beyond the few sampled book covers and you arrive at the blogs that play themselves with the NEXT button. THANKS, BBO!!
