Board 22:

Buras opened 1 and South doubled. Narkiewicz showed his weak support and Gawrys informed his partner they had a good spade fit. East showed his second suit, Klukowski competed with 3 and West supported his partner’s second suit at the 4th level.

 Gawrys Non vulnerable decided to cut opps communicatons and declared the spade game, but this didnt bothered Buras who close the club game: 5. When the bidding was dying, Gawrys decided to sacrifice in 5 and Buras chose to double.

The declarer was two down, he lost A, A, A and a diamond ruff.

Balicki opened 1, Duboin doubled, Zmudzinski said 2 Bocchi decided to interrupt their opponents comfortable dialogue with a jump to 3, showing weakness, and 5 spades.

Balicki showed extra distribution with his 4, Duboin NV quickly occupy the fourth level, but now the West hand had greatly increased in value, a double fit with A y K in partner’s second suit, so he called 5.

Bocchi doubled showing some defense, Balicki passed, but Duboin considered themselves unable to defeat opps and chose to play 5, after two pass Balicki, decided to play the club slam. Bocchi doubled.

The only lead to defeat the contract is a spade, but Duboin chose his Q. Declarer ruffed the lead, drew trumps, he lost the heart finesse and claimed 12 tricks and 15 IMPs.
