Lesson 5 - Full deal

 

The main point – combine all your chances.

 

Order of play:

2 – 4. Check if spades behave:

a) if they break 3-3, you have nine tricks by playing hearts;

b) if spades are 4-2, you have to find clubs 2-2.

 

Closed room – contract 3 NT, + 600 for EW.

You checked the spades: no swing.

You played the club suit first: – 200 = -13 IMP.
