They all Count
You never know when an IMP will be important, but it always satisfying to collect one when it involves a fine piece of play, as on this deal from the Wuhan Cup match between Belgium and France:
In the other room South had passed on the first round and then doubled East’s 1NT rebid, North playing in 2 and scoring +110.
Here West led the J and declarer won in hand and played the 8, East winning with the queen and returning the Q. Declarer took dummy’s ace, ruffed a spade with the 9, cashed the A and then played three rounds of diamonds. East could win and cash the Q, but then had to surrender a club trick to dummy’s king.
