Monday Duplicate Bridge Results

Posted by Ron Stock on January 13, 2014, 6:24 pm

What a crazy day. So many off-balanced hands. Board 11 bidding should have gone like this: North opens One NT. Whatever East does should not interfere. South is holding 8 hearts and 5 diamonds. At whatever level South knows N/S holds at least 10 hearts and should bid Diamonds to transfer hearts to North. After North bids hearts, South, with 6 points and 2 voids, holds a 16 point value hand, 5 for each void, and should ask for aces, then kings, and set the contract at 6 hearts. Marcia and Paula were the only team to do this correctly and received top board. although they didn't transfer and played it in the South. Fun day!
