It is tough to see how we could have 12 tricks in 6N and not 13 in 7.

The diamond suit has to come home to make 12 tricks in notrump, and if we have to concede a diamond trick, we need to be able to stop whichever major they lead twice.

If we don't have to concede a diamond trick, then surely he has 2 hearts to ruff in my hand and now we have 13 tops.

The alternative is to assume both the spade K and at least AQ in hearts and either the diamond A (not Ax) or the QJ (not QJ tight) as well as good clubs.

Plus in clubs we may be able to avoid a diamond loser on a 4-1 break if he holds AQx or AJx 9the latter requires an unlikely finesse, given the fit 4)

I bid 7

This one was the most interesting hand of the set, but with so many decisions I didnīt see how to post it as a problem


I was a bit scared of biddign 4 and committing to the 5 level with:

KJ9x
J109xx
Q10x
x

Remember Wank is a passed hand, he might be stretching a bit just to ask for a heart lead. But I knew that a heart lead couldnīt be very productive so I wanted to switch his gears towards a spade one.
