The 24th European Youth Team Championships 2013 are being played in Wroclaw, Poland and today began the Round Robin of the Junior Category. The Board number 6 of the first RR match produced interesting swings in 9 of the 11 tables that are playing the event. Let’s see what happened in the table that confronted two North European countries: Denmark vs Sweden, which ended with the victory of Denmark 14.01 to 5.99. These were the teams formations in the open and closed rooms.

5.99 – 14.01 VP (29 – 46 IMP)

GRONKVIST Ida JEPSEN Peter

After hearing a pass, Jepsen of Denmark opened its hand with a 1 bid, the hand meets the Rule of 20 and also has a comfortable redeclaration after any major response .

Gullberg in West took the opportunity to show his six-card suit of spades and Bilde in North showed his sixth hearts with a forcing voice. East now with a four cards weak support in his partner’s suit decided to named them at the 3 level.

 Jepsen chose to pass to demonstrate weak opening values and West adding his 9 points to the few showed by his partner and seeing his heart shortness, concluded that N / S had to have game if they had fit in heart and closed the spade game in what he certainly believed it was a sacrifice.

 Bilde convinced that they had no heart fit and with favorable vulnerability, chose the double … Final Contract: 4X.

 The E/W hands fit better than a glove and the partnership ended scoring +790, fulfilling their contract after losing a spade, a heart, and a diamond … as we say in our family: sacrifice…nothing…

At the other table the auction was similar but Cecilia Rimstedt in North evaluated her hand in a different way and produced a 12 Imps swing for her team.

Again South opened 1 and West showed his spades with 1. Cecilia chose to double, showing hearts and values.

Bilde showed his 4 cards weak support. South showed his minimum opening and here also, West did the math and sacrificed with 4.

But now Cecilia seeing that partner had a singleton or a void in spades and so many chances for heart cards instead of a double competed to 5

Declarer was unable to make her contract: one down … but scored 12 IMPs.

These are the results of the same board in all the tables:
