The haters have won – no chickens for now. This means I won’t have poultry to blog about. Well, my life is exciting enough without it. Take today for instance. There I was at the bridge table and I pick up this:
S: A K Q x x
H: K J x x
D: K x x
So I COULD open 1 spade, but I chose to open 2 clubs. Then my partner said 2 hearts and I said 4 no-trump, which she answered with 5 diamonds, so I bid 6 hearts which makes, of course. We were missing the ace of trump, but everything else was ours. Three out of six people were in the same contract, so it wasn’t a big deal. Now the hand where we bid 6 CLUBS, and were the only ones who found it, now THAT was a big deal.
I hope this post was especially pleasing to those of you who voted NO on the chickens. There’s plenty more where this came from.
