Before the change in
scoring some years ago -700 used be the score for 4 off doubled not vul.
These days there's only one way to manage it - 7 off undoubled
vulnerable. Pretty rare.
Match 2 board 3.
opened an aggressive 3S. Orlando Wu tried a sort of gambling 3NT
overcall! Annette Maluish looked at this for a while and eventually
decided to pass. 8 rounds of clubs duly followed. Dummy clung to
its 4 spades to preserve a stopper for as long as possible so Hugh pitched down
to just 3 spades and dummy ended up scoring the HAK at the end. Just the
-700 didn't feel like a
good result at the time.
But little did we know. Teammates duly
reached 6Cx for +1090 (I am sure they weren't the only ones).
How often do you go 7 off vulnerable and gain 9 imps?!
