Spingold Chances SF- Part 5

As mentioned in earlier articles, thanks again to all that Jan Martel does for us with her tireless efforts in coordinating BBO vugraph as well as her ongoing work with the USBF.

Blass jumped to an early lead against Spector in the first segment leading 26-0 at one point and concluding the segment 30-11.

Spector may have been down, but certainly not out.  In the second segment they roared back with a 31-16 segment to bring the match at halftime to 46-42 Blass.

They missed a chance to take the lead when a thin game was bid at one table and missed at another.

3N is cold provided declarer plays on clubs after ducking the initial spade lead at trick one and led to a 10 imp gain for Blass that helped stop the losses.

A great match with Blass leading by 4 imps with 30 boards to play.
