This was my favorite hand of the night:
On Board 11, none vul, Sherry held as dealer:
A95 J3 Q863 T962
She passed and LHO opened a weak 2. I (her partner) bid 3N. RHO bid 4. What would you do?
Sherry bid 4N, which made me decide that I would marry her all over again. My hand was QJ AT T4 AKQJ543. The spade hook was on and 4N came home for 70% of the matchpoints.
(Important safety tip: If you tell your wife that the 4N bid made you want to marry her all over again, she is likely to ask if you wouldn't marry her again if she did not bid 4N.)
