I played an interesting had the other night at bridge….

Here is your hand let’s see how you do…

AKxx
Ax
Axxxx
A10

You open the bidding with 1D and partner responds 2C which in this particular system is forcing to 2NT.
You bid 2S which is forcing and then partner bids 3H which is 4th suit forcing…now what do you bid…

See below….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ans: 5NT which is a grand slam enquiry….you are telling partner you have all the aces and asking how good is your hand partner? I know we have 6X on but what about 7X

Partner has:

xx
Kxx
KQJ
KQJxx

So this looks like 12 tricks off the top and 13 tricks if clubs or diamonds break or partner has a nice 10. As it turns out it is 13 tricks off the top.

2 spades, 2hearts, 4 diamonds and 5 clubs…with the diamonds breaking you have 14 tricks!
