A Record-Setting Auction
Just yesterday I posted an article on the the worst play ever. This one is pretty remarkable as well:
My partner lost the obvious six tricks, for -150. Despite the standard
interference-bid of 2♠, south had two opportunities
to come to life with what was a very fine hand opposite a takeout double of hearts.
Even a reasonable contract of
6♦ or 6♣
would have earned a top on the board. As it was, my opponents achieved a rare coup
with the combination of allowing us to play an undoubled game contract and
not making a single bid, when a grand slam was there for the taking!
