Playing with Diana and Ros, we finished second on 100/160 VP. Last year's winners were third so we missed an opportunity for an early win the event, but still better to finish above them. Board thirteen, against them, was flat but had some interesting points:
An interesting auction at our table. Holding both majors Jean might have doubled one diamond, but it is a minimum hand and the three diamonds are not attractive; however she has seen Reg's overcalls before and was not tempted to raise his overcall to game. But the auction gave me a very good idea of LotG's hand and, having implied six diamonds already, I was able to introduce the weak club suit without overstating things and LotG had enough to raise.
Of course it can be beaten on a spade lead but that is not an option on Jean's hand. In this sense we were lucky as a spade is the obvious lead from West. After ruffing the initial heart, I could draw a round of trumps and, when Reg switched to the king of spades, win it and play diamonds. As Jean held the third diamond and outstanding trump, I was able to discard both of dummy's spade losers in time.
