I think I would have passed when you did, although that wasn't best at the table. Both spades hand and Grand strike me as too speculative.

Sorry, I seem to have missed this one completely.

I think I'd bid on, it looks too good to pass.

At 24, I'd probably play Spades Hand. It doesn't quite meet Wergin's requirements but it's very close despite the singleton 10.

Next question: would I bid on beyond 33 and commit to Grand? It would probably would depend on my mood at the time, but I think on balance, yes.
