Interesting hand from SCBA

Amazingly someone actually bugged me to update on BBO.

Actually due to some stuff happening lately, I am currently stuck in a state of ennui. (Not just restricted to bridge, I had totally no attention span to do anything today at all, even eating. Those who know me better might find more details on my LJ.) Hopefully this will pass soon.

This happened on 7 Sep, a Friday night game which Andre and I won with 57.08%. This will be the last Friday night game of the year I am playing with Andre, as he is leaving this coming Saturday morning.

At our table, I sat North and wondered for a moment if I should open 2H. The factor that dissuaded me from doing so was the fact that EW were two U-21 team members who would be able to deal with the loss of space, and might even find a making slam. I thus passed and 3NT was declared by East, making 12 tricks.

After the session, my two opps and I were looking at the hand records with Poon Hua, when he told us he actually opened 2H on the North hand! Apparently he was allowed to play in 3H which gave a good score compared to all the 3NT contracts making.

A further interesting point is the hand plays better from East regardless of the denomination of the contract.
