Many thanks all of you who went through the effort of reading the first part.
Special thanks to all of you who had a word of appreciation. Thank you, it means a lot and provides motivation to share more. Its good to know that someone out there is reading, and one isn’t writing simply to satisfy one’s impulse.
I must admit to an error in the 1st session write up. The hand where Jaggy went down in 4♥ in an effort to make an overtrick actually happened in 3rd set. I mixed it up with another hand. Thanks Rajeshwar Tewari for pointing out. There are a lot of instructive points in that hand, and I’ll try and take that up later. Or better still, I’ll request RT to write it up, if he’s willing.
Ok, back to business. The first hand of second set brought up an interesting problem for the opponents.
A weak two, TO dbl by partner, a raise and you have half the deck and 5 trumps. What won’t you give for a penalty double. However, in today’s age doubles are anything but. At my table East bid 4♥ and then raise partner’s 4♠ to 6. Lets see the full hand.
