Today's Bridge: Dan and I made the only hand that was made at all, and it doesn't look like it should have been. With S A-K-J-9-7 H K-J-x D K-Q-x C A-x, I elected to open 2NT instead of 1S - I think the power is a more important feature of the hand than the major suit. Dan looked at the convention card, then responded 3C, so I took him for Stayman and responded 3S. He bid 4D, which didn't help much, and I chose to bid 4S rather than going straight back to notrump. He passed with S Q H Q-x D A-6-x-x-x C Q-x-x-x-x. Not the hand I was expecting at all. Fortunately, Mike didn't lead a club, so I won the diamond lead, crossed to the queen of spades, crossed to my king of hearts, and found the spade split 4-3. The diamonds then split 3-2, giving me everything but the ace of hearts. It makes 4NT in similar fashion, but I'm quite sure that diamonds are the correct suit. If Dan responds 4D instead, we might find it, or just a 3NT bid would be very nice. The only danger at all is a club lead. Otherwise, lots of sets on both sides.

Nothing else of interest happened today, and I've got something to do, so that's it for tonight.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
