I agree that this hand should have been bid to a grand slam. I have posted a few hands in the past where GIB could count 13 certain tricks in NT after the 5NT response, but failed to bid the grand. Now that I think about it, I have never seen GIB bid 5NT, receive a favorable response, and go on to the 7 level. It appears that the programmers have made GIB's 5NT call a pointless exercise of telling the opponents what our side has, without ever using that information for our benefit. Can anyone remember, and preferably post, a hand where GIB bid a grand slam after having bid 5NT?


Bit of a necro, but here's a hand I played tonight.
