Lightening Strikes Twice

About ten years ago playing in a club Swiss teams event, I sat down againt my nemesis (in a good, fun-filled competetive way).  She had already shuffled the hands (she was a stationary table) so I said "I want the good hand" and switched her hand any mine for the 1st board of the set.  She proceeded to bid and make 7NT on that board against me.   I never tried this "joke" again until yesterday when I sat down against another friend of mine.  He too had shuffled the boards so I swapped his hand with mine and made mention of the last time I tried this.  They proceeded to bid 6S, making 7 (in all fairness on a hook, so not biddable), as I have him a balanced 24 count opposite his partner's opening bid.  I explained to him that I told him to bid 7 on this board but I guess he didn't believe me.....

I have removed this joke from my Repetoire....
