2016 Australia-Wide Open Pairs
Your Personal Results Booklet
Welcome to your personal results analysis booklet for the 2016 Australia-Wide Open Pairs. (If you log into this booklet with your name, the statistics will be personalised for your results.)
You will have already received your first booklet on the day of the event -- an instructional booklet with advice on how to bid and play the hands. This is your second booklet, looking at the actual results from around Australia.
About 100 clubs submitted their travelling scoreslips, so this year's event is being scored across the field. With over 750 tables submitted for each board, and over 22000 boards played overall, this is your chance to directly compare your results with players from all over the country, board by board.
For each board we have displayed a full national travelling scoreslip, plus a summary of the most common contracts and results, with some additional comments about the final results. The summary also shows your own result, and also the results of one of the top ranked pairs. This way you can see exactly what you needed to do if you wanted to win the event!
This booklet also contains the list of the top 660 pairs in the event, on pages 38-43.
The top five pairs are:
1. Lorraine Griffiths & Dan Delcourt Bendigo (Best Vic/Tas)
2. Chris & Shirley Watson Moreton Bribie (Best QLD)
3. Kevin Nickolls & Patricia Newall Blue Lake (Best SA/NT)
4. Prudence & Babette Francis Caulfield Park
5. Phil & Sandie Armitage Cowra (Best NSW)
Best WA pair: (tie) Colin Saunders & Esther Saunders Bunbury,
Norma Pears & Vince Menezes Maylands
Prizes will all be listed in this document. In all cases, winners need to contact us at mail@australianbridge.com to give us your postal address. (If you see a friend's name in a prize notice, be sure to let them know and congratulate them).
I hope you enjoyed the event and find this booklet interesting and informative.

Comments:
Making 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) was just worth an average, losing to the pairs who somehow got an overtrick. The common bidding traps for NS were bidding too high, or not bidding high enough. 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)-1NT-3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) is not forcing, so North has to go directly to 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) if she wants to be in game.

Bidding slam (or even trying for slam) is too aggressive. North needs South to cover three of her four losers (the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)Q, images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)A and images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)AK). Not only is that too much to ask from a 1NT response, but there are also many wasted cards South can hold (images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)KQ, images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)Q). 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) is a strong favourite to make, but anything higher is a long shot.

Comments:
As predicted, many NS pairs were left to play in 1NT here, leaving EW with just 26% on perfect defence (6% if they drop a trick).

West's hand is fine for a double or 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) overcall. Traditional teaching says West's suit is too poor and hand is too weak for an overcall, but at Pairs it's also dangerous to let opponents play 1NT when you have an alternative. It's not like you have to make the decision at the two-level; no one is going to double a non-vulnerable 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes). If partner raises, your weak suit will suddenly take quite a few tricks. If he bids a new suit, even better.

The book prizes for making 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) go to Colin & Sue Wagg of Wagga Wagga, and Penny & Philip Powell of Coolah.

Suggested result: 3NT-E, NS600
NS winners' result: 3NT-W, EW630 (NS 37%)

Comments:
Most NS pairs failed to find their four tricks against 3NT. It's hard for South to switch to a small heart after winning the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)K. On most auctions, the absence of a slam try should tell South that North has at least four points; depending on how the play goes, South may be able to place enough of declarer's cards to work out where the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)K is.

NS get 62% for taking all their tricks, demonstrating that there are more important things than getting a plus score. Even when opponents have 27 HCP and a cold game, you can still control your own destiny.

The book prizes for defence go to David Ware and Kaye Haebich of Yarrawonga, and Susanne Hession and Diane Murray of Wangaratta.

Comments:
The most common contract here was 1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) -- not my choice, but you can't argue with success. Oddly, the 2nd-most popular contract was 3NT, which is hard to justify with 17 HCP opposite 5 HCP. There are two likely ways this could have happened:
1) South made a game-force bid after 1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)-1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes). The hand is a bit strong for 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), so I sympathise, but it's not worth a game force. (See the current issue of Australian Bridge for the Gazzilli solution).
2) The auction went 1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)-1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)-2NT-3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)-3NT. Again I sympathise; 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) might be a better spot than 2NT, but in traditional methods, 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) is forcing here. If you really can't bring yourself to pass 2NT, four-suit transfers after 1X-1Y-2NT let you stop in 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes).
Book prize for a unique top goes to Vona and Carmel of Peninsula for making 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)x.

Comments:
Most pairs bid 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) and took all their tricks for a healthy 64% score. On a non-club lead it's possible to make 12 tricks by setting up the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)10 by leading toward it (South might split his honours, and if that fails you can ruff out the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)KQ). More than 50 pairs managed that for a 93% score.

Some pairs played in 1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) (passing the opening with the 5 HCP) or 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes). Firstly, East should be adding a point for the shortage in clubs; secondly, you need to appreciate the value of a ten-card fit. If East does raise to just 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), West with 16 HCP and a singleton is worth a game bid, or at least a serious invitation.

At a few tables NS competed to 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)! If you failed to double that, you get 30% instead of 99%.

Comments:
This hand is a delicate balance for NS, between getting into the auction and getting too high. Most managed it well, with 1NT the most popular contract. It can be beaten, but that's always hard to do (hence the prize on this deal). Most made an overtrick for 81%, while seven was worth 58%.

I'm guessing NS stayed out of trouble because South failed to overcall, but the above auction illustrates that it is possible to get in a light overcall and still stay low.

The book prizes for beating 1NT go to Dorothy Woods and Julia Kerr of Maleny, and Trish and Noreen Armstrong of Trumps.

Comments:
The most popular spot here was 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) by NS, and I'm starting to detect a theme here. Letting the opponents play in an eight-card fit is a great way to lose a Pairs game. Obviously it would nicer to not be vulnerable, but -110 is a soft score at any vulnerability (29% for EW in this case).

Get in there. You might make 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), you might get out for -100, and best of all, you might push NS to the three-level. 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) was worth 76% for EW, dropping to 63% if NS took the save in 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes). (And if you are dedicated enough to double 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), that's worth 96%, but that's above and beyond the call of duty).

Comments:
Continuing the theme of the previous hand, South should bid 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) here rather than letting opponents play safely in 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes). (It's repeating themes like this that make people suspect this event uses set teaching hands, but it's not true -- good bridge sense is a common theme in random hands as well).
On this occasion NS need to back up their good bidding with good defence. Defending 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), it's essential to not let EW get a diamond trick. A passive defence, leaving West to play on diamonds himself, will beat 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) for 69% NS. (Even defending 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), holding it to eight is worth quite a few matchpoints).
Book prize for a unique top goes to Spicer - Finkelde of MVBC for making 4images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)x.

Comments:
There was no popular contract on this deal, with plenty of pairs in all levels of spades, hearts and clubs (and even quite a few in diamonds). A non-vulnerable preempt from North gets EW guessing from the start, and it's actually quite tough for them to get in. A lot of EW pairs defended a cold 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), instead of making 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes).

3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) is not laydown (although even one off is better than defending against the nine-card fit). To make 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) you'll need to take the club finesse, which you will only do if North's bidding tips you off. Preempting is a two-edged sword.

Comments:
There should be more pairs in 3NT than we're seeing here. South has an unmistakeable 1NT bid whether East opens or not, and North has an easy invite (especially if he knows East has all the outstanding high cards sitting under South). The large number of pairs in 2NT suggests that North was inviting, but South was not accepting.
The play is tough on a club lead; South needs to play diamonds first, removing East's only guaranteed entry before East's clubs are set up. On any other line of play, the defence can persist with clubs for one off. Beating 3NT was 86% EW.
Book prize for a unique top goes to Mike Rival and Paula Lennon of Goondiwindi for doubling Stayman, and then beating 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) redoubled.

Comments:
The popular spot here was 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), with 23 HCP and a couple of shortages (although the shortages don't fit well on this occasion). It will make on a cross ruff, but goes down if the defence lead trumps at every opportunity. The records show this isn't what happened, so I guess at most tables declarer drew too many trumps voluntarily.

If West enters with a takeout double over 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), NS should be able to get a nice penalty, but in most cases EW weren't doubled. This auction is discussed in more detail in the September issue of Australian Bridge Magazine.

The book prizes for beating 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) redoubled go to Meredith Stacey and Geoff Green of Tasmanian Bridge Association.

Comments:
About one in five declarers in 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) are going down here. As mentioned in the booklet, the losing play is to play ace and another spade. North wins and draws a third round, and suddenly there aren't enough trumps to ruff all your losers.

Normally the best way to play this spade suit would be a bit of a guess, and ace-another spade would be a valid option. On this deal, the need to ruff your losers makes that play too risky.

Comments:
The auction in the souvenir booklet had a fairly easy route to 5images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), but surprisingly the most popular spot turned out to be 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)! I can only assume that East overcalled 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) at many tables (West and South have been fairly timid throughout this set, so obviously the aggressive players are all sitting East). The space-consuming 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) overcall took North's clubs out of the auction, and took out South altogether.

I'm not thrilled with 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) -- when I recommend a reckless overcall, it's usually at the one-level, and/or the opponents have a fit. And usually I'm not vulnerable. But it's a bidder's game, and the 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) overcall worked very well here.

Comments:
More than 100 players made ten tricks here, which is a remarkable effort. You need to get a spade away on the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)Q (so you need a non-spade lead for starters) and then you still have all the clubs to get rid of. Making 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) was worth 92%.

While the 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) bidders had to work for their 92%, the 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) bidders got 70% for just showing up (and 81% for making ten). It's not a great game, but I don't see an intelligent way to stay out of it. South could pass 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), but with a full value 14 HCP and a singleton that's very conservative (if you are in the habit of always ignoring honour placement and distribution points, you were probably due for a win).

Comments:
There was only one slam in this set, and it wasn't a very good one -- that sometimes happens when boards are randomly dealt (which is what most players say they want from this event). 19 pairs did bid a slam here, but only 7 bid the best one (6images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)). A further 26 pairs got all the way to 5NT before stopping safely.

In practice, most pairs in 3NT (or 5NT or 6NT) made 12 tricks. There are several ways for the defence to give up the 12th trick: a heart lead away from the ten, failure to cover a queen led from North, or rising with the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)K on air after an opening club lead. EW's two tricks don't look like much, but if you get them both you'll score 55%.

Comments:
Technically this board is also a slam deal, in the sense that 6images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) is the par contract. It doesn't make, of course, but it's a good slam for people who like winning matchpoints more than making contracts.
Sixty NS pairs pushed EW to the five-level and then doubled them, a common matchpoint trap. You've done good work getting them up a level, and now there are two possible outcomes: (1) you beat 5images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), thrashing all the pairs who defended 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), or (2) they make 5images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) for the same "normal" score they would have had in 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes). When you double 5images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), you turn outcome (2) into a disaster. It's not at all clear cut -- you do have 16 HCP and three aces, after all -- but consider whether you might already be sitting on a good result before you double.
Book prize for a unique top goes to Pippa and Andrew Hooper of Cairns for making 6images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)x.

Comments:
EW can make game here, but few bid it, and many failed to compete over 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes). At a different vulnerability this might not be a disaster, but here, two off in 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) is a great spot for NS. Sadly for EW, most Easts led a heart, cutting the penalty to 50. It's a tough lead problem, and a triumph for players who always lead partner's suit.

As they say, leading partner's suit won't always work, but it's better than having partner mad at you if your own choice fails. Bridge players like it when partner leads their suit.

Comments:
Remarkably similar to the previous deal, NS are competing to a 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) that is two off, while EW are unsure whether they can make five of a minor. This time, the two off is vulnerable, and the EW game is quite poor. Ironically, with fewer points, more spades, and vulnerable opponents, this time EW chose not to sell out to 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes).

I'm half kidding of course. Distributional hands usually belong in game when you have a fit, and it's no surprise that 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) makes.
(Confession: the par contract in the souvenir booklet is wrong. Originally North had the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)J, beating 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), but the cards got mixed up in the typesetting.)

Comments:
In the battle between hearts and spades, the spades won easily here. When I was learning bridge, I was taught that it's ok to continue fighting for your suit if you have five more cards in your suit than in partner's. That typically applied to a 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) rebid after 1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)-1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)-2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), but it seems to apply equally well here (note that West is a passed hand, so passing 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) is an option). With a 6-0 preference for his own suit, it's an easy decision for East.

With misfitting hands it pays to get out early, but this deal is a weird one; not only does 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) make, but the hand also plays beautifully for NS if they get involved.

Comments:
NS had to decide whether to go all the way to five-level in clubs, or to try their luck in the world's worst Moysian fit. Unsurprisingly, most went for 5images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), and a lot of them made it. I don't know how; presumably there was a ruff and discard at some point, and a heart got away. 75 times.

More than 30 pairs had a go at 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), and a lot of them made it -- 97% well deserved!

The book prizes for making 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) go to Pam Hamilton and Keith Chapman of Eastern Shore, and Liz Kensell and Jess Miller of Coffs Harbour.

Comments:
As suggested in the souvenir booklet, the majority ended up in a poor game here, providing the defence with a chance to shine. There are several ways to beat 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), the main ones being continued trump leads, or a diamond at tricks one or two. The only losing defence is to cash two rounds of hearts, setting up a heart ruff for declarer, without getting your diamond trick first.

I should mention that many deals give the defence a chance to shine, even without the glamour of beating a contract. If EW are defending 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), there are still quite a few matchpoints between -140 and -170 (almost a whole percent on your final score, in fact).

Comments:
The popular spot was 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), presumably after 1images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)-1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)-1NT-2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes). Rebidding a five-card suit often turns out badly, and passing 1NT would have worked slightly better here. Whether you're in 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) or 1NT, taking all your tricks will be worth a large score.

Against 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) South should lead an unbid suit, and the heart is unattractive. The images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)6 is the winner, getting your club trick before it runs away on the hearts. Of course, at some tables West will open 1images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), making diamonds the unbid suit -- that's just unlucky for South.

Comments:
Not all 15-counts are equal, and South has a good one here. In an uncontested auction, a 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) rebid shows a very good hand, and would probably be enough to get partner to bid 3NT. In the actual auction, South is under a bit of pressure, and North probably assumed South just had a competitive hand.

3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) was worth just 35%, unless the defence slipped up. After leading the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)A against 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), West has no room for error. A trump will allow dummy to win the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)8 and set up a heart trick (with a loser on loser play). Only a diamond switch will hold declarer to nine tricks.

Comments:
There aren't too many ways to go wrong here, and 350 pairs made EW450. A fairly small number of NS pairs saved in 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), and some of those attracted a push to 5images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) for a flat board.

If NS do bid 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), EW can get 500 by doubling, for a rare 99% score. In practice, most pairs either failed to double, or misdefended -- in either case, a near bottom for EW. That's an error big enough to drop you from 50th to 130th in this event. When opponents have bid beyond their means, they are usually counting on ruffs; a trump lead is the recommended way to inflict maximum damage.

Comments:
We often see people end up in 2NT on misfit hands, and it was the popular spot here. Some Souths fought on to 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), prompting a re-rescue to 3NT.

The upside: notrump contracts are hard to defend, and many of the 2NT bidders got home for a huge score. To make 2NT declarer will need four hearts, three clubs and a spade (or a diamond). That involves losing the lead at least twice, and possibly three times, so the defence should have had plenty of time to grab their three diamond tricks (plus the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)K images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)A images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)A) for one off.

Comments:
As mentioned in the souvenir booklet, the key to the defence here is to cover the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)10 with the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)K. We always say that "kings are for putting on queens" but generally that also includes jacks and sometimes tens.

If the ten is allowed to run unobstructed, North's images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)K will later be finessed by West's jack. It's clear that the king is doomed, and by covering the ten at least the king is achieving something. It forces declarer to use the ten and ace on one trick, promoting a trick for North's nine. This will save one overtrick and a handful of matchpoints.

Comments:
I was impressed that the top two contracts here were 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) and 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes). With a horrible 11-count opposite 9 HCP, I expected most NS pairs to not get involved, but most people could see that defending 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) was a losing proposition. In fact defending 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), in the nine-card fit, also goes badly.

Having decided to compete, the question is whether to bid the hearts, or double to show three suits at once. With such weak hearts and good black suits, I'm sure double is the long-term winner, but I can see the attraction in bidding hearts instead.

Comments:
A common feature of this event, with its 800+ tables in play, is that 1NT contracts often have a huge range of different results. Here, results range from four tricks to nine tricks. The souvenir booklet proposes a strategy for making 1NT, but there are dozens of variations.

At many tables East bid 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) instead of 1NT. This could be right on some days, but on this occasion 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) plays pretty much the same way as 1NT, for a much lower score. Balanced hands should generally not play in a minor.

Comments:
EW can make 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) here, but some will have an easier ride than others. After cashing the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)AK, North should play a diamond. On any other defence, declarer will knock out the trump ace, and eventually discard a diamond on the long clubs. On a diamond switch, declarer must make an immediate guess (between the diamond finesse or the 3-3 club break). Many will guess wrongly, as a 3-3 break is against the odds.

The book prizes for beating 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) go to Ross Maher and Jenny Turner of Sunshine Coast, and Klarika Tortely and Josephina Burrie of Cairns.

Comments:
While the displayed auction was common when the experts played these boards, I assume most players will open 1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) (as I did). These players will get a 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) overcall, and have to face the question of how that affects the play in the heart suit.

There are two possibilities. (1) West has more clubs than East, therefore fewer hearts, so play East for the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)Q. (2) West has more points, since he overcalled, so play West for the queen. Since two-level overcalls tend to be up to strength, I'd play West for the queen (especially if I have time to discover he doesn't have the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)K, leaving only 12 HCP outstanding).

Comments:
With 27 HCP but no spade stopper and no major, many pairs did well to stop in 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) here. (That could be good judgement, or it could be a long history of timid bidding finally producing a good score). However you managed it, staying in a partscore but taking your 11 tricks was worth a healthy 70% -- you wouldn't have scored much better than that even if you did bid 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes).

The small number of game bidders were split evenly between 3NT (terrible), 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) (poor) and 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) (a very lucky make, although half the players still went down).

Comments:
Quite a lot of people played in 4images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) here, suggesting that South didn't get a chance to bid the hearts. The moral of this story: overcall 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) when you can, the opponents hate it. The East hand has several bad qualities that argue against an overcall, but in the end, the guy who bids generally wins.

On this occasion, EW need to push NS to the four-level to get a decent score. Defending 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) or 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) is worth about 22% for EW; saving in 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) will get you up to 40-50%, and if NS continue bidding over you, 70%.

Comments:
Board 33, and we've reached the point where most clubs don't play the boards, so we have a sample size of fewer than 200 tables. The popular spot was 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) -- were you pushed there, or did you go voluntarily with a Bergen raise? In either case, well done for not letting NS play 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) or 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes).

Most defenders managed to take six tricks against 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes). Exactly like board 24, there are two options for a winning defence here: getting a spade ruff, or drawing trumps to prevent a diamond ruff. The more traditional defence when holding four trumps, the "forcing defence", fails here because declarer absorbs the ruffs in the short hand (collecting the 8th trick in the process).

Suggested result: 3NT-S, NS600
Winners' result: Not played

Comments:
Results in 3NT ranged from 7 to 11 tricks on this deal. There's a growing trend of leading majors against 3NT, which works well here; a spade gives nothing away, leaving declarer with seven top tricks. If the defence continue to play safely, it's unlikely that declarer will find the precise sequence of plays to reach nine tricks.

If West gives up a trick on the lead, declarer has several chances for a 9th. After trying various options, eventually dummy's 4th club will get the job done.

Comments:
As mentioned in the souvenir booklet, this deal is a lot wilder than it looks. Both North and South have weak balanced hands, but the par contract is 5images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) doubled! That's the power of favourable vulnerability, you can get away with all kinds of indiscretions. Of course, you're not in the race if North doesn't overcall 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes).

In practice, most sold out to 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), which seems normal enough. A lot of matchpoints swing on the lead, as East's club losers can run away on the diamonds.

Winners' result: Not played

Comments:
Our final board was played at fewer than 100 tables, but had dozens of different results. The most frequent score was 1NT making an overtrick, at just five tables. This also happened to be the average result, at 52% for EW. NS start with four rounds of hearts, and eventually get a spade trick as well.

If EW manage to play notrumps from the West side, NS can't take their heart tricks. Declarer has time to set up a spade trick for 150 (assuming he hasn't already picked up a 9th trick on the lead).

If South responds to North's opening bid, NS will likely buy the contract for an excellent score.
