There was barely time to catch your breath when the Bermuda Bowl semifinal between Switzerland and USA2 got under way:
The Americans superbly detailed convention card lists 9 possible rebids after 1-1 (in an uncontested auction) but stops at 3. However, interpreting the meaning of 3 is not the hardest task one might face.
East led the K followed by the ace and declarer ruffed and was soon claiming 11 tricks, +600.
With a five-card suit that had been supported, and the inference that partner would be short in clubs West took what he thought would at worst be a good save.
North led the Q and declarer won with dummy’s ace, played a heart to the ace and ran the 10. When that held he could draw the outstanding trump and claim, +650 and 15 IMPs.
