After partner opened a weak two, I mildly raised the stakes, knowing that I had atleast a VUL game to play against. Little did I know that they can do better than slam simply by doubling.
6♣ is a great contract, and 7 can be made by ruffing a D loser with ♣ A and then running the Jack.
6♠ is also pretty good, requiring either ♠ break or ♣ guess.
West should get it right since we play 8-11 weak 2 in 1st 2 seats and use multi for weaker preempts.
However luckily for us, he did not. Once he found out that I had the winner spade, he probably got worried about going down multiple tricks if I won the ♣ Q
I could then draw the last trump and play a heart to partner. We don’t know the real reason, and perhaps won’t unless he elects to share.
This was a good start to the session.
A defensive problem coming up
