7th European Open Championships
On this deal from the Marit Sveaas Pairs, it was not uncommon to see N/S bid a game (and sometimes make it). The American brothers, Adam and Zach Grossack made a mockery of that with the EW cards:
Board 24. Dealer West. None Vul
| 10 9 8
A 6 5 4
K 10 8 2
| A J 4 2
K Q 3
J 9 7 6
| 7 6 3
10 9 7
A J 9 4 3
| K Q 5
J 8 2
K Q 6 4 3
North led the ten of spades and declarer took South’s queen with the A and played a club to the 10 and Q.
After cashing the king of spades South played a third round of the suit and declarer won and played a diamond, ducking when North went in with the K.
When North returned the 2 declarer went up with dummy’s ace and played the 7 to the Q and A.
When North returned a heart declarer took South’s 9 with the K, cashed the master spade, crossed to dummy with a heart and exited with a club, forcing North to lead into dummy’s diamond tenace.
+120 was worth 110/10, helping the brothers into eight place at the end of the second session.
