Join Bridge Winners
Unique or at least very special

Please allow me to share with you what happened to me yesterday (July 10) evening. I played the online bridge tournament on StepBridge (the Netherlands internet bridge club). I was South on board 19 and 23. I picked up the following hands:

19:  K Q 10 9 8 7 4  A K Q 8   ―  9 2

23: K Q 10 8 7 5 3   A K Q 2   ―   9 4

So exactly the same (extreme 7-4-0-2) distribution and exactly the same honors. In fact only four small cards were different ( 94/53, 8/2 and 2/4).

If you are curious what happened: on both hands the bidding started the same 1-2; 2. On the first one I ended up in 4, making 6 (but it was a less than 50% slam), on the second one I had to play 4 and managed to make the contract despite trumps 5/0. Not very spectacular results, but of course that is not the essence of my post.
