New online poll proposed by BridgeTopics.com. This year’s Cavendish Invitational Pairs was decided on the penultimate board of the fifth and last session. The opponents of the winners – Fred Stewart and Kit Woolsey – booked a bizarre result reaching 4S as East-West. The bidding went short and sweet (or sour):
West North East South
Smirnov Stewart Piekarek Woolsey
4H Pass 4S All Pass
Interesting to note that even one of Europe’s best pairs experienced a huge misunderstanding. Obviously East-West had different ideas of what 4♠ meant. 4♠ minus five brought in just enough cross-imps for North-South to win the event.
Meaning of 4H – 4S?
These are the 3 options:
4♠ over partner’s 4♥ is always to play
4♠ over partner’s 4♥ is RKC
4♠ over partner’s 4♥ is a cuebid agreeing hearts
