I've been spoiled playing in higher brackets with McKenzie, but this week, it's bracket sixteen for me and my squad of players who actually all have more points than I do. It's sort of awful down here, but it's really fun, too. My biggest laugh of the week so far was this auction and the post mortem that followed:
I opened the bidding:
1C (1D) 1S (P)
1N (2D) all pass
Dummy hit with the world's fair -- an 11-count with clubs double stopped and diamond support. When declarer made 4, dummy said, "Whew, I was starting to worry I hadn't bid enough!"
Declarer said, "Oh no it was perfect -- I only had a weak 2."
There's more where that came from, but for now it's back to the bridge table.
