Yesterday I was playing in a pair game with my new friend Max from Salt Lake City. We've been having a ball at the Eugene Regional, though playing in a regional directly following the summer NABC has been an adventure. I had to struggle to maintain my composure yesterday when the following play happened.
Playing matchpoints, I dealt and opened with 1H. The auction proceeded:
1H (1S) X (4s)
5C (P) P (P)
Dummy hit with:
A J8 AJ9865 Q984
4 K9532 74 AKJ65
I won the spade lead and drew two rounds of trump, ending on dummy. I'm fairly confident the hearts are offside on this auction, so I think my best bet is to try and throw my LHO in with a diamond. I lead the 5 from the table, and it goes 3 - 4 - 2.
AWESOME. Thanks to my RHO ducking from KQT3, I'm home free for all of the matchpoints. I was amused, and sent the story to my buddy Greg, who put it to a beat. I was going to post it, then I realized the lyrics are a little too explicit for this family friendly website. But anyway there's a rap song out there now about this little play. Maybe I'll make the lyrics available on my Facebook page... :)
