Never go for -800 in a team event

Bucureºti, 31-08-2004

Bucureºti, 22-11-2004

Because East passes, he accepts the 3.

What now?

I decided to bid 4, no chance at all and minus 2.

After the lead of North immedeatly played Q, to finess the K.

This Q was ruffed by West. After that K ans K were certain losers.

The red colours were not good enough.

Because West passed she accepted stop 2NT.

The play wasn’t the problem

After a ruffed in South ther were sufficient tricks.

 

Last weekend we drove to the bridgefestival in Brasov.

With Valentin and Bogdan we ended number 1.

This goes as follows.

Saturday we played 9 rounds. We ended at the third place, from the bottom.

Sunday the last fout teams played seperately in a poule.

We ended as the champions.

Before we started in teams I prescribed the following system:

Both pairs never go for -800, unless against a certain slam.

This golden rule is whispered to me by the great filosopher Tibi, for which I am still greatful.

Sorry for the actual situation.

Sadly, Truus and Louis went for -800 in 3, against a maybe 2 for the opponents.

The bidding went:

1 p 1NT p

2 ?

Truus dbl with 10 points holding in spades A 3

Louis had the perfect 3-3-3-4 distribution with K Q 2 and gave preference 3.

So the spade suit was good taken care of.

The other colours were Swiss cheese, you know the one with a lot of holes in it.

Then we scored the results of a following match.

Dan slaan we een volgende wedstrijd uit.

1e board Bogdan and Valentin: -800, against a maybe 2.

Bogdan preempted 3 in the middle of the auction.

This was doubled by the opponents, normally for takeout.

Valentin announced 5, also barrage.

The opponents have to decide between double and 5.

This time 3 double was for penalty.

Of cause 5 was also doubled.

2nd Board Louis and Truus: +800 against a maybe 2.

We were even then.

How did this worked out?

Lead: 4, the lowest of 3.

Trick 1: for A

Trick 2: return for the K

Trick 3: K for A.

North played 3 times , south signalled with 8.

North played J and three -tricks were made.

After that North wins a trick or South the Q.

1SA doubled -3.

What do we learn from this?

Never go for -800 in a team event unless against a certain slam.

Greetings from Louis, the dutch player.
