Game All Matchpoints Dealer West
Playing in an online matchpoint pairs event you pick up possibly the best hand you have ever held. East opens a weak two diamonds after two passes and you venture a take out double in the hope that partner will bid something vaguely useful. He responds two hearts, what do you do now?
Less of a solution, more of a sad guess. You hope partner has the heart queen and that the spades are running so try seven spades. Unfortunately he tables one of the worst hands he has ever held 3, 7653, 9853, 8642. Spades break 4-1 and the heart queen doesn't drop so you are two off for a near bottom score. Those South players bold enough to only bid game scored very well!
