Another deal is from the Tollemache qualifying event.
Manchester finished second in their group behind Middlesex.
This deal features a fine sequence from Middlesex players Neeraj Tanna and John Atthey.
Neeraj (West) opened one spade with his powerful hand and then forced to game with a three diamond rebid over John's one notrump response.
John gave preference to spades and Neeraj repeated diamonds to show a five-five hand. Four hearts showed interest in slam (last train) and Neeraj bid four spades. John now looking at useful queens in Neeraj's suit and the ace of clubs leapt to five notrump - pick a slam. Neeraj chose six diamonds as that was his better suit.
This was a good contract, Neeraj was able to ruff one spade in dummy to set up the suit and twelve tricks rolled in.
Well bid, they were the only pair to reach this slam.
