On this board our teammates got all the way to six spades. It was early in the day. They hadn’t had their weeties yet. Against us Cayne got to seven spades. Declarer took the line of diamond ruffs in dummy which goes down to the bad trump break combined with an inappropriate club layout. Double dummy you make easily by ruffing a heart high. Obviously this isn’t the right line, but it did make me wonder if there was a flexible way to start. Well, none of you have come up with one, so I guess not.

See you tomorrow.
