 At the other table Multon opened his hand with a 2 bid, showing a weak two suits hand with spades and a minor. Schwartz passed and Zimmermann knowing that E/W had enough points for game decided  to make them difficult the task of finding where to play.

Zimmermann got East/West silence. Declarer finished 5 down in his club partscore…but added 9 IMPs to his team score.
