Diamonds are a girl's best friend

Posted on March 6, 2013 at 2:24 PM
I'm always saying that 'diamonds are for your finger' but the other day I fell in love.
 
I was playing with Perfect Pat at the local club when I picked up this hand:
 
5   32   QT987643    72
 
I promise you I did not plan to bid.  However, Pat opened the bidding 1 spade and my RHO overcalled 2 hearts.  I thought about jumping to 5 diamonds immediately but when you play with Perfect Pat you don't need to worry.  PP will do the right thing when it gets back to her.  I Passed and now LHO bid 4 hearts.  PP was ready, and out came the Double card.  Was this Penalty or was she trying to make me bid?  I was confident she wanted me to bid so I bid 5 diamonds and that ended the auction.
PP put down a wonderful dummy:  AJxxx   x   AJ52   Axx
 
LHO led the heart Ace and then switched to a club.  I won the Ace of clubs then called for the Ace diamonds.  PP was impressed when I picked up the King of Diamonds but didn't understand why I did not pull more trump. She didn't realize that there was no need.  We had twelve trumps bewtween us - how rare is that?  I was busy ruffing her spades.  Unfortunately, I needed one more entry to dummy than I had - I should have kept my 3 or 4 diamonds in my hand to reach dummy's diamond 5.  Had I done so, I would have made 6.  Nevertheless, bidding game and making it was still a top for us.
 
The moral?  Don't bid without points, unless your partner wants to hear from you.  Then you can bid what you love.
