This deal is from the Manchester Congress Pairs.
Jovi Smederevac from Austria is a top class international player.
She has played in the Manchester Congress in recent years, winning the teams event in 2020 and 2021.
This year she played in the online congress pairs, while visiting Australia which meant she had to stay up until four in the morning (but the weather was better than in Manchester).
On this deal she showed simple, but effective, pairs technique.
Firstly she jumped straight to three notrump over East's takeout double of partner's opening club bid.
Then on a spade lead, she won with the king and immediately played the ace of diamonds followed by the nine of diamonds to the jack.
West won the queen and blithely continued with another spade.
Jovi now had twelve tricks and a shared top on the board with Alan Mould who played the hand the same way.
