Good old routine

Today's Bridge: The opponents had some misfortune in the form of Dan representing his hands with four clubs when he only had three. They ended up in three notrump off two (due mainly to the bad heart split... Dan's clubs were A-K-Q) and three clubs off three (5-1 trump split there). I got my side into two off-one contracts, which I thought was a good deal, and ended in a 3C contract that made exactly despite appearing to be underpowered... and it probably was. I think I had S 8-x-x H A-K D A-x-x C Q-x-x-x-x, and Raymond had S A-Q H x-x-x D Q-x-x-x-x C J-x-x... I opened 1C, Paul jumped to 2H, and Raymond doubled, which seemed interesting at the time, but in retrospect, it worked. I covered the opening diamond lead - Q, K, A. I ran a low club to the jack and Dan's king, and he cashed the jack of diamonds, then led his last diamond. Paul hesitated for quite some time, then sluffed a heart. I knew what that meant, but it didn't change my play. I led the queen of clubs to pull the ace, leaving the ten high in Dan's hand, then won the heart lead in my hand and pulled the last club. Dan led a spade, making things easy, but I had the ace for my board entry and two good diamonds to sluff my spades on. Getting both spades allowed me to sluff the king of hearts instead, for grins.

There was a brief period of really strong rain this morning... but I avoided it. Gotta love that.
