Playing E/W with Gerry in an 8 table Mitchell, came first with 69%.
Gerry played KS, I played the 3 to show my count. Gerry now made key play of 9S. It doesn't matter if Derek has QS, I must have club entry and can play my third spade through Dummy's Jack. As it happens I win and so we made 4 spades, 2 diamonds and a club for down 1. 80% as 1NT was making elsewhere.
Definitely riding my luck here. I opened East 2NT with my 23 points and singleton King. Gerry checked for 4 hearts and bid 3NT. South found the club lead alright, fortunately for me it was a small one. I ran my 12 winners and the opposition failed to keep enough hearts so I made 13 tricks.
I nearly opened East 1NT but passed. Norman opened South 1H and Gerry overcalled 2C. Colin passed and I bid 2H, Gerry 2NT and I bid 3NT. Three out of eight found this excellent contract.
Colin led a diamond to Dummy's Jack and a club immediately found the King. Another diamond was taken by Colin (not best) who now played a heart but that was it, twelve tricks were there.
The thing is neither of us know what my diamond bids mean. Would I have bid the same with a void? However the bidding must show I have a diamond suit but even then, was I looking for a spade control??? No idea, but often I would just punt 6H on this hand expecting it to be on a diamond finesse at worst. It was just my night for getting things right.
