14th Red Bull World Bridge Series: Teams
This Monday was played the Round of 32, of the knockout stage of the 14th Red Bull World Bridge Teams Championhip Open.
In board number 8 of the first segment, appeared an elsuive slam that was played only on 6 of the 32 tables. All declarers made their contract…
One of this pairs was Meckstroth-Rodwell, the match was broadcasted by BBO (thanks BBO):
The 1 opening bid was artificial, showing 16+, F1, and the cc says: All points can be adjusted in any situation.
Mecstroth upgraded his hand because of the distribution and honors concentration in the long suits.
The 1NT answer showed a forcing game hand, with a club suit.
The 2 showed a diamond suit, and 3 showed support.
After that they only needed to know their keycards to declare the slam.
Rodwell won the lead with the A, continued with the K and played a spade to the A. Pitched a heart in the K, ruffed a spade, played a club and claimed 12 tricks with a crossruff…
