Diego Brenner and Carlos Pellegrini, Gran Southamerican Masters, won the Keohane North American Swiss Teams, in the NABC; Phoenix 2013. Talking with them they told me two hands they fee that were key on their way to victory.

Hand Nº 1:

Diego Brenner

Diego Brenner

Diego Brenner: ” The tournament began with 196 teams, the cut was after the first 8 rounds,  only the first 92 teams qualified to the semifinal stage.

 It was in that instance that we face the Tulin squad. At our table we played against two great champions: Bob Hamman and Samuel Lev, everything was normal until this hand appeared: “

 Deadler: South, None Vulnerables

Lead: K

Diego: ” After Bob Hamman 4, Carlitos passed showing he had not wasted honors in spades; so I decided to show my club suit and that helped us to found the good Slam.

I ruffed the lead, played the A to be sure that the suit wasnt 4-0, and as both defenders followed the suit, the slam was cold, my tricks were: 1 spade ruff, six hearts, one diamond and four clubs.  You can see that the heart slam is always down, losing two diamonds.

At the other table game our opponents played a heart game, so the hand and gave us 11 IMPs to continue accumulating valuable victory points.

Carlos Pellegrini: “During the 46 teams final, in one of the rounds we played against the Compton squad; Diego and me played against Daniel Korbel & David Grainger:

Board 13 Deadler: North All Vulnerable.
