Ostend Seniors, Three

The third day saw England playing three top teams and apart from a close match with France lost 20:10 to Sweden and Netherlands. Today there are two difficult matches, and then the competition eases. However, at 18th we are a long way from a qualifying place.

Against the Netherlands you hold an 0-6-6-1 with three Aces and the KQ of diamonds. The bidding reaches 6C, so do you double or bid 6D? England doubled and found the opposition with a diamond void in one hand and a hear void in the other. The Netherlands bid 6D only one off; huge swing.

England also missed a grand slam bid at the other table in the match v France, so not a lucky day!
