The annual Michelle Brunner Memorial event held each Summer is an enjoyable mixed pivot teams event in aid of charity.
With many untested partnerships and systems some unusual (unfortunate) results occur.
Sally Brock held the hand below
Non-vul vs Vul. Pairs Dealer North
Sally chose to double, intending to bid two diamonds over the expected two clubs response to show a strong hand. The auction continued two spades from West, double (responsive) from partner. Sally had no difficulty in passing and that was +1100 and 12 IMPs against the five diamonds bid and made at the other table.
The full deal
West's raise to two spades was rather injudicious at this vulnerability and East was rather thin for his opening bid, but they were perhaps somewhat unlucky to be so harshly punished.
