Another Year Playing the ICBL (bridge)

This was my third full season representing the Harvard Club in the Inter-Club Bridge League. We were lucky enough to win the regular season by half a board (same result as last season), the trophy for best pairs performance, and a tie for the overall championship in the playoffs. Here is a key hand against the team we tied with. There were no hand records so details are as best as I can remember.

-100 turned out to win the board as our teammates played in clubs making +110. Of course if -100 was the goal to start with there was a much easier way to do that, but this deal illustrates how bridge is a game where more and more information is continually revealed and used throughout the hand.
