It’s not very often that you have an enjoyable lasting memory of a hand especially when you’ve gone one down in your contract.
I can’t even remember what the contract was!
Our opponents were top players ( my LHO was our guy that gives the great bridge tips and my RHO – don’t want to disclose this).
Anyway, I just needed one trick in Diamonds. I was on the table where there was QJxx in diamonds and I held the singleton King. So I thought – there’s no point in leading a small one to my king as RHO will surely put up his Ace – so I decided to play the Queen ( hoping that RHO would duck the ace and think that his partner had the King) – not a chance down came the Ace – and a quiet remark to the effect – “do you think I was born yesterday”. How dare I underestimate him – was the look on his face! Every time I think of it, it brings a smile to my face.
