2019 Australia-Wide Novice Pairs
Your Personal Results Booklet
Welcome to your personal results analysis booklet for the 2019 Australia-Wide Novice 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 90 of the participating clubs are submitting their travelling scoreslips, and the event is being scored across the field. With over 700 tables submitted for each board, and nearly 20,000 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!
Note: this feature is only available if you selected your name from the box on the previous page.
This booklet also contains the list of the top overall 436 pairs in the event, on pages 38-41, and the top 324 under-50 pairs on pages 42-44.
The top five pairs are:
1. Neil Cramer & Christine Cramer Blue Mountains
2. Sue Evershed & John Simmonds Peninsula
3. Sheila Bishop & Jenny Walkden Nedlands
4. Brian Harris & Faye Shelton Maylands
5. John Martin & James Taylor Trumps
Best under-50: Daile Falconer & Thomas Delisi GSDB
VIC: Cesar Forcadela & Jean Mallac Sale
QLD: Heather Andrews & Jane Carter Toowong
SA/NT: Ken Haines & Frank Vandenheuvel Gawler
Prizes will all be listed in this document, including a separate prize list on page 42 for players with under 50 MP. 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:
The event is just getting underway as we start writing this booklet. At this point, with only five clubs having played, the popular contract is 3NT, rather than the easier 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes). 3NT is still a good score, as there are many pairs who did not reach game at all.
The results indicate that East usually found the helpful 2NT bid on the 2nd round, and West should have been able to place the contract correctly in 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) after that. At other tables, East chose 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) on the 2nd round, and that gives West a tougher problem. Still, passing 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) should be West's last choice -- opener's jump in a new suit is forcing.

Comments:
There's no way to stop in 1NT on these cards, but several of the pairs in 2NT managed to get home for a big score. Even the pairs in 3NT got an acceptable score if they made eight tricks. Only a heart lead will make it difficult for South to find eight tricks.
Stephen's recommended auction in the souvenir booklet results in an average score, which seems about right. In theory, -50 in 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) should be a great score when the opponents have 25 HCP, but of course that doesn't apply when their game is going down.

Comments:
Everyone played in the right suit here, and, despite only 23 HCP, the majority managed to get to game. The key decision on this hand seems to be, can the defenders find their three aces?
When declarer (North) leads a club from dummy towards his bare king, there is no reason for West to play 2nd hand low. On a different hand, West might play low and hope that declarer has to guess who has the ace and who has the queen, but on this occasion there is no guess. West has both, so he knows declarer cannot go wrong. Grab the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)A before it runs away, and you'll score 35% instead of 7%.
Two EW pairs made 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), disqualifying each other from winning a prize for "best unique top".

Comments:
Again, most pairs were in the right suit, although there were a few stragglers in 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes). West has a reasonable 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) opening, although I'd rather have images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)AQJ854 or at least images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)AQ10984 when vulnerable. East doesn't want to get into a battle with his partner, and you can imagine hands where 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) will get you too high (it is forcing), but I still think East is good enough to bid 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) here.
Most people are making ten tricks, or missing game, so making 11 is a great score. There are 12 available, but the 12th trick is not worth much.
The book prize for this board was not won.

Comments:
As mentioned in the souvenir booklet, EW pairs who bid 3NT gave North a problem he could not solve. Hardly anyone beat 3NT, leaving EW with a 90% score, or an overtrick for 97%. Back on earth, not many EW pairs managed to stop in 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), but that's fine -- making 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) was trivial, for an average score.
Quite a few pairs played in 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), as expected. Most people got away with it, scoring 110 to tie the 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) pairs, but perfect defence would have taken 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) one off for a very poor EW score.

Comments:
The points here are distributed perfectly to make it as hard as possible for NS to find game. If North had been dealer, of course, it would have been easier. A lot depends on how strong you expect South's 1NT response to be -- this will determine whether North should bid 2NT or 3NT (or even pass). Both players have reason to be optimistic; North's AJ10 and KJ10 are positioned beautifully over opener, and South's QJ108 is likely to produce two tricks -- great value for a three-point suit.
Book prizes for 4NT go to Karen Walsh and John Campbell of Ballarat and Anne Loveridge and Robin Meiklejohn of Cowra, and a "unique top" prize for Simon Mann and John Hardwick of MVBC in 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) doubled.

Comments:
Judging from the results on this board, it looks like most people in this event play natural overcalls over 1NT. This worked out brilliantly here, turning a likely +100 from 1NT into +110 in 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes). Beating 1NT was worth 51% to EW, while making 110 was 75%.
The worst part about defending 1NT, of course, is sometimes you misdefend and they make it. About half the NS pairs in 1NT made it for 74%.
Book prizes for beating 1NT go to Marianne Viebke and John Ferguson of Bunbury and Pamela Bedwell and Winnie Raste of Sydney.

Comments:
Another 23-point game, but the majority didn't reach this one. The key is for South to appreciate the value of the distributional hand, adding at least three points for the shortages.
The souvenir booklet suggested that we should play hearts by leading the ten from the South hand, but I think a low one to the jack is a better start. This way the suit will flow more freely if West has a singleton honour, although South's heart pips are strong enough to cope with a bad break even after the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)10 is gone.

Comments:
On Board 2, North had 9 HCP, and Stephen recommended passing 1NT. Here, West has 9 HCP and he recommended bidding 3NT. It's interesting to compare the two hands, to see the difference between a good nine and a bad nine.
Having said that, bidding 3NT here is no certainty, and if East has a poor fit for clubs 3NT will definitely not make. But using standard methods, there's no way to find out how good the clubs are, and it would be embarrassing to languish in 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) with 25 HCP. Sometimes you just have to take a shot, and that's what the field did here.

Comments:
The field will not have replicated Stephen's proposed auction here, although it does have my endorsement (at Matchpoints). Nevertheless, the final result was the same, and this board is the closest we've come to a unanimous contract so far.
The result on this board was determined in the play. The common result was nine tricks, for a healthy 63%, but it's not clear how you managed to make nine without making ten. After finessing the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)J and giving up a club, there are nine top tricks (five clubs, images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)AK, images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)A, images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)A), but literally whatever suit is played next will produce a 10th trick.

Comments:
Two consecutive 28-point slams, but unlike the previous board, this is a good one and you should bid it. After South shows spade support and some values, North can see that there are unlikely to be two losers.
The key to the hand is South's 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) bid. In a game forcing auction, 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) is a stronger bid than 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes). If South had a worthless hand, he would go straight to game (the "principle of fast arrival"). With extra values, South goes slowly to save space.
Book prize for a unique top goes to Margaret Keating and Diane Wenham of Dalby for 7NT.

Comments:
East is almost good enough to raise 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) to 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), and it's possible a lot of you did that. However, East's hand is not as good as it looks, with its singleton ace and questionable images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)J.
The disciplined action is for East to continue describing his hand and let West decide what to do. 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) suggests length in that suit, asking West for help there. It's likely that West will bid game anyway, with 14 HCP, even though images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)J108 is not a very helpful holding. Nearly everyone bid game.
One off in 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) was such a popular result that it actually got a decent score (40%).

Comments:
Our third slam, and this one has the full 33 HCP so there should be no problems. The tricky part is, West might not have been able to convince his partner that he had 24 HCP.
The notrump structure is an important foundation of bridge bidding:
1 of a suit then 1NT shows 12-14.
1NT opening is 15-17.
1 of a suit then 2NT is 18-19.
2NT opening is 20-21 (some play it as 20-22).
2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) followed by 2NT is 22-23 (23-24 for some).
And finally, 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) followed by 3NT is 24/25-26.
If you limit your hand appropriately, partner will always choose the correct level.

Comments:
Most pairs are in game, so well done to North for recognising the distributional value of the singleton diamond. 11 total points opposite a 1NT bid, an easy game. Easy to bid, that is, but not so easy to make.
This hand is featured on page 14 of the current issue of the ABF Newsletter, so we won't go into a lot of detail here. In short, don't feel bad if you went down... I don't think I would have made it either. Guessing the heart suit correctly to make 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) was worth 84%, with 19% for going down.
There are ways to make 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) without guessing the hearts, but this would require fairly sophisticated card play.

Comments:
The four most popular contracts were, in order, 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) and 3NT. That's good bidding, I think. 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) is the right spot. 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) means you didn't try hard enough, and 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) means you pushed a little too hard (and it's a slightly better spot than 3NT).
The spade lead is clear, holding declarer to ten tricks, and a lot of people made only nine tricks. I'm guessing you used your only dummy entry, the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)A, to play a trump. When you have only one entry, you need to prioritise carefully. The club finesse is essential, the diamond finesse is not.

Comments:
There are ways to make nine, ten, or eleven tricks in 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes). The normal result, with trumps 3-1, is ten tricks, because declarer can only ruff one loser in dummy. If the defence sets up East's images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)Q there are 11, but that would be very poor defence.
Many pairs failed in 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), making five trumps, images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)A, just one club ruff, and only two diamond tricks. If you had unlimited ruffs, you could play the diamond suit any way you liked, but on this hand you need to play the suit for three tricks. The best play is to hope your images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)QJ are sitting over the king: lead towards the queen, and if that wins, go back to dummy and lead towards the jack.

Comments:
Declarer has 12 tricks, but after cashing those 12, East is likely to come under pressure and declarer will often find that his 13th card is actually high. On the other hand, the defenders can cash two club tricks if West finds the lead from images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)K7.
It basically comes down to the NS auction. If you bid carefully, and tell EW what you have, they will find the right lead. If you just bash it, they are in the dark. EW score 56% if they find the club lead, and 32% if they don't (and 11% if East doesn't manage to stop the 13th trick).

Comments:
Everyone managed to reach 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes); some of you will have used Stephen's recommended auction, others will have just bashed it. Declarer has six spades and five clubs, and on most lines of play it will be easy to ruff a diamond before drawing trumps for the 12th trick. The defence can prevent this, of course, by cashing their two aces -- that would be quite clever.
With so many pairs making only ten tricks, you may suspect that North underfed the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)A at trick one, tempting declarer to misguess the hearts and lose the first three tricks. In fact, there are only three players who found this defence; the rest of the declarers just misplayed it.

Comments:
The field was split evenly between nine and ten tricks here, with a third of a top at stake (42% for nine tricks, 78% for ten). At first, I thought it might be because some people were not leading a heart, but that wasn't it -- everyone led a heart. Maybe declarer played a diamond from dummy and East didn't take the ace... but would declarer really play a diamond? Also unlikely. Did West throw a heart winner on declarer's 4th club? Declarer still has only nine tricks and can't get to dummy to play a diamond. Where is the 10th trick? I don't know.

Comments:
As we said in the souvenir booklet, there is a good case for West to push on to 5images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) over 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), and in fact most people who were faced with the problem did exactly that. It was a small group though; most NS pairs sold out at the four-level. None of that mattered anyway, as 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) and 5images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) both score the same when there are 11 easy tricks.
About 100 declarers let the defenders get a club ruff, and made only ten tricks; this was a terrible score whether it was -100 in 5images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) or +620 in 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes).

Comments:
The last in a long run of boards where the contract was almost unanimous, and the card play determined the result. Aside from the unlucky 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) on Board 12, this was the flattest board of the set. Declarer has ten unavoidable tricks and no more, except on a diamond lead from North. At the time of writing, four people have found the diamond lead, with just one following through to hold 3NT to nine tricks (South needs to win the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)Q and return a small diamond).

Comments:
This board had more variety, with most EW pairs not reaching 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) (and quite a few of them selling out to a NS partscore, or worse, letting NS make 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)). The proposed auction, with NS finding a 5images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) sacrifice over 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), turned out to be hypothetical.
The card play in 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)/5images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) also had a high variance. East can be a hero, with the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)Q lead, but in reality there are more ways for East to go wrong. Underleading the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)A will hurt (don't do that), as will leading a club (unlucky) or following with an honour when declarer plays on clubs. Some people panic on the club, thinking, "If I follow with the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)2, dummy will win with the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)9." Dummy isn't going to play the nine; just calmly follow low, and watch declarer go up with the king.

Comments:
This one is quite tough. The "best" spot, looking at all four hands, is 3NT making ten, so the pairs who don't find their heart fit will do quite well! This assumes, of course, that they take ten tricks... in practice, about half of the pairs achieved that. Finessing into the bare images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)J is one quick road to disaster.
East has three high cards, and if he waits patiently he will probably get them all eventually (in 3NT or 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)). More likely, East will lead a diamond, and another diamond after winning the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)A (or images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)K). This puts declarer under a lot more pressure in 3NT, as now there is a risk that East will take four diamonds tricks if he gets in again.

Comments:
Some Easts passed 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) on this deal, which isn't ideal (6 HCP and a doubleton). At most tables, East raised to 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), and West had to choose from three options. The minority choice was pass, which is far too timid with a nine-card fit and a possibility of 25 HCP. The majority choice was 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), which is too much when there might only be 22 HCP. The correct choice is something in the middle. That might be 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), but 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) is a better choice -- a "help suit" bid, giving East some information to work with.
Getting to game is no disaster; on a non-trump lead it's about 50%, so you've probably been in worse contracts today. You still get 35% for -50.
The prize for a unique top goes to Nader Esber and Daniella Nikolova of SBC, doubling 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes).

Comments:
The EW field did better than our recommended auction here, finding the good 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) sacrifice against 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes). It wouldn't have been such a good sacrifice if it had been doubled, of course, but in the real world no one doubles in these situations. The 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) bid was worth a third of a top (53% to EW instead of 21%). NS need to make the heroic decision to bid 4images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), which is a big ask, but 40 pairs have managed it.
Having said that, making 4images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) is not a walk in the park, as you have only one entry to dummy for two finesses. The winning line is to take the club finesse, and later use the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)8 as an entry for the diamond finesse. In practice, though, West will lead a diamond for you at some point (in fact, pretty much anything West does will help you).

Comments:
With 32 HCP and two voids, it's not great to see that 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) was the popular contract. Assuming East opens 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), it is entirely West's job to bid the slam here as soon as the spade fit is found.
Alternatively, if East opens 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) instead of 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) (not recommended, but not ridiculous), then West has more than enough to go to game. Now, with a massive 10 HCP more than a minimum opening (plus a void), it would be shockingly pessimistic for East to not bid 6images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) (or more likely, 7images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)).
Many people actually failed to take 12 tricks. This is a good textbook hand for "counting tricks": five spades, four diamonds, three clubs, so you need one club ruff for 13. Take that ruff early, then draw trumps.

NS winners' result: 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)-S, NS90 (NS 49%)

Comments:
With a balanced 13-count opposite a balanced 9-count, 1NT is the obvious spot, but the majority played in 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) or 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes). If West had not overcalled, North would have had a close decision between 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) and 1NT, but the 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) overcall adds a third option: the negative double. North would like to have four hearts for the double, but it is still the best choice here, keeping 1NT in the picture.
1NT and 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) are both worth +90, for an average score, but on good play they can both make an overtrick. The overtrick in 1NT is, of course, more valuable than the overtrick in 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes).

Comments:
The correct spot on this board is 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), in the 4-4 fit, but there are a lot of players in this event who don't play Stayman yet and played in 3NT instead. It's not a big deal, as making either game is a good score (80% for 3NT and 90% for 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)). This is because in both games, more than half the people are going down.
Both contracts depend on the finesse of the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)9. If you play a diamond to the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)9, it loses to the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)K, and then you'll be left with the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)AJ sitting over West's images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)Q for two tricks. Many people will have played the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)J on the first round, wasting the power of the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)9.

Comments:
I feel like there are more slams in this set than usual, although several of them are hard to make and impossible to bid. This one requires dropping the singleton images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)K offside, which more than 50 people managed to do for some reason. Once again, just bidding the 22-point game was enough for a good score.
As usual, it's essential to remember distributional points when you're thinking of bidding game. Once East adds three points for the singleton diamond, it is clear to raise West's 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) to game. If East forgets to do that, and just bids 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) instead, then West should still get the job done; three points for the singleton spade is enough for West to bid 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes).

Comments:
There are ten tricks available in 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) (six clubs, three hearts, and the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)K). However, there are a lot of ways to go wrong. The perfect line that Stephen proposed in the souvenir booklet is far too complicated, and I would simply cash three rounds of hearts and hope no one ruffs. This leads to nine tricks and a 60% score, thanks once again to all the pairs who are getting minus scores.
As it happens, the pairs who overbid to 3NT did not need to go minus; they could have taken six clubs after cashing the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)AKQ. My guess: North led the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)6, dummy's images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)10 won, and declarer was stuck in dummy.

Comments:
I've mentioned a few times about adding points for distribution, but on this board people seem to have gone a bit overboard in that area. South has 13 HCP, if you're optimistic enough to count the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)Q. If you do count the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)Q, you certainly aren't allowed to also add three points for the singleton.
North also has some distribution, and is entitled to add some points for the void, but don't get too excited; the void would be extremely valuable if you had four-card trump support, but with only three trumps you're unlikely to get more than one ruff. Also the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)J might be worthless. A simple raise to 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) describes North's hand adequately, and South has no reason to go further.

Comments:
From an overbid hand to an underbid hand, neither side got full value from their cards on this one. At favourable vulnerability West might open 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) here, but here 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) is enough. 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) at this vulnerability requires a good hand; it will often be passed out, and you really don't want to score -200.
Whether East passes, or finds the super-aggressive preemptive raise to 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), South is responsible for getting his side into the bidding. The takeout double is the most flexible choice, giving North a chance to defend if he really wants to. Any other call by South has a high risk of playing in the wrong suit. There are more points swinging on this decision than on any other bid in today's game.

Winners' result: Not played

Comments:
Only a few tables played the final few boards, but there are enough scores for a clear pattern to emerge. NS got their revenge for the previous board; this time it was their turn to steal the opponents' hand with a 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) preempt. EW could have collected 500 for huge 97% score, but very few people doubled; of the six pairs who did double 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), four of them cashed the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)A prematurely to give North an eighth trick.
Once again it was the hand with the short spade (East in this case) who should be responsible for getting his side into the bidding. This is much more difficult than the previous board though.

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

Comments:
West's diamonds are just strong enough to beat 3NT. The images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)KQ will drop dummy's images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)J, and then the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)108 are sufficient to draw South's images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)7. Together with West holding the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)A as an entry to the diamonds, and the 5-0 club break preventing declarer from taking nine tricks, this is an unlucky hand for NS. In a strong pairs event, this would be a flat board at -100, but in this event with only a couple of clubs playing Board 34, NS have to make do with 31%. If you were scared to risk the spade finesse, and ended up going two off, I don't really blame you, and it didn't cost you too much.

Winners' result: Not played

Comments:
There is no chance of a swing in the play of this deal, so the score simply depends on the bidding. I know there are a few pairs in this event playing a 16-18 notrump, so these pairs will begin 1images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)-1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)-1NT. East should bid 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) now (invitational) but it's clear that some people bid just 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) and missed the game. Similarly with those playing a 12-14 notrump: again, East should invite to 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), although that's tricky unless you play transfers. The majority, playing a 15-18 notrump, will simply bid a quick 1NT-4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) (or possibly transfer it to West first).
The trickiest scenario is the one given above: a weak two opening from South. This will unravel some of the EW pairs.

Comments:
A very flat board to finish with, although only one pair was in the winning spot of 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) -- well done Sue Marshall and Bronwyn MacLeod!
If you manage to guess the spades correctly there are ten tricks in 3NT (three spades, three clubs, images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)AK and images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)A). Also, assuming a heart lead, the defenders have three tricks after winning the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)A (images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)A images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)KJ). So ten tricks seems the obvious result.
There is one catch: after you cash the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)AQ, and play a third spade, you have to guess whether to finesse the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)10 or play for the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)J to drop. While the odds favour dropping the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)J, and there are other good reasons to play for the drop, it's not surprising that there were people in both camps.
Thanks for playing in our Australia-Wide event. Our next one will be the Open Pairs, 25-31 August.
