The Tao of Gaming

Boardgames and lesser pursuits

Don’t make them angry…

So I tune into the US Bridge Championships and see that Meckwell are playing … six spades redoubled (making, but can’t get an overtrick). Next hand they jump to an ambitious four hearts, get doubled and … redouble. This time the overtrick is there, but their opponents run …

I can’t recall seeing two high contracts redoubled in one session, much less back to back. (Of course, Meckwell are way behind, and taking big risks…)

(Rodwell’s hand on that slam was  S: AKJT98653
 D: 9
 C: A94)
