Another board from the Manchester Congress Pairs.
After Diana Ackerman (South) opened two clubs East-West put up a small barrage at favourable vulnerability, but Andy Green (North) drove to the grand slam.
Diana won the spade lead and took two trumps ending in dummy. She now discarded a diamond on the spade king and played three rounds of diamonds ruffing high in the South hand. Now a trump to dummy and her heart losers went on the established diamonds. Nicely played for a joint top with Joy and Irving Blakey who were the only other pair to bid the grand slam.
