Mike Yuen — Mike talks about bridge

The Unlucky Expert!

I like to share an interesting deal with you, before I leave these Championships on a Jet plane.

Once in a while you play a hand well but is all for naught.

Trasnational Teams. RR 11. Board 11. Dealer South. None Vul.

As South you held KJ108 K972 8 A1043 

West North East South
Pass  1 *  1   1  
Pass  2   Pass  2NT 
Pass 6NT All Pass  

 1 -very slow bid.

I give you North-South hands and see how you would play 6NT.

The lead was


♠ Q72  









Here is how P. Wijen of The Netherlands played it.


Click on next to see the play of this deal.

Wijen played for the squeeze. Reason that East-rated to hold long hearts and the diamond king.

I said “Well played and you have my sympathy.”
