Friday Night Pairs at SCBA.

Andre and I won Friday Night Pairs with 66.18%.

Maybe this is what it means to be in “the zone”. I actually made quite a few bad mistakes, so if everything was perfect the score should perhaps been better.

This was our only bottom of the night:

I opened 2S and eventually ended up in 5SX. On the trump trick, Poon Hua (North) signalled for a diamond. Declarer cashed the Ace of Diamonds and I claimed 11 tricks.

An underlead of the diamond would have put me to the guess and probably down me by 1. In any case, imagine my amazement when Andre produced 6 spades in dummy for me!

5C shouldn’t have made but I allowed it to. In any case we still got 4.5 MPs out of 5 possible.
