Club #94: Emerald Bridge Club in Eugene, OR

September 15

Eugene is the home of the University of Oregon. The city has a very nice club that was recently remodeled. There was a lively discussion on a variety of topics which everyone seemed to enjoy. One question was, “what was the most embarrassing thing that happened to you on the tour?’ I gave them a hand that I went down 5, but that was a lie because the most embarrassing was about to happen in Canada. I held S-x H-Kxx D-KQxxx C-KJxx. My partner opened 1H, pass, I bid 2D, then 2s by LHO, and 4H by partner, pass, now what? Well I found the worst answer and my most embarrassing moment. First I bid 4NT, and my partner bid 5 spades. Oops. You can’t bid 4NT playing key card if you can’t stand the answer of 2 plus the queen of trumps. As if 4NT wasn’t bad enough, I was so upset with what I had done, I passed 5 spades and my poor partner had to play in his 3-1 fit in their suit! Jeff Taylor and I did manage to win in Eugene while Elaine played with Mary Egger and finished 3rd. I had a fun time at a very nice club.
